Siwertell unloader for South Texas
(Posted on 28/10/19)
Bruks Siwertell has delivered a high-capacity Siwertell ST 640-M screw-type ship unloader to South Texas Cement’s terminal in the US port of Corpus Christi. Ordered in 2018 by US-based GCCM Holdings LCC after an extensive decision-making process, the Siwertell unloader was found to be the best fit for the cement handling operation.
It was delivered fully-assembled by heavy-lift ship to the port in October. Once the operator is ready, Bruks Siwertell will oversee its testing and commissioning, with the unit expected into operation in the near future.
“When combining all of the deciding factors that led to choosing a mechanical unloader, it was apparent that Siwertell was the best fit for our needs,” said a spokesperson for GCCM Holdings and South Texas Cement at the time of the order. “We especially like the high rate of unloading combined with the versatility to handle various ship sizes.”
“The factors considered by GCCM and South Texas Cement during the decision process included unloading times, venting requirements, electrical demand, capital and lifetime maintenance costs, ship size, and storage capacity,” added Patrik Henryson, Sales Manager, Bruks Siwertell. “Once operational, the unloader will not disappoint.”
Siwertell ship unloaders have set cement industry standards for decades, offering some of the highest unloading and loading capacities available on the market. The new fully-enclosed unloader will offer the terminal a continuous rated cement-handling capacity of 1,500t/h, unloading ships up to 60,000 dwt.
Bruks Siwertell design, produce and deliver systems for loading, unloading, conveying, storing, and stacking and reclaiming dry bulk materials, alongside equipment for chipping, screening, milling and processing wood for the biofuel, board, saw mill, pulp and paper industries. All equipment is designed to ensure environmentally-friendly and efficient cargo operations.
