US cement handler orders Siwertell unloader

US cement handler orders Siwertell unloader

(Posted on 28/03/21)

Bruks Siwertell has recently secured a new Siwertell road-mobile ship unloader order for cement handing operations in the Gulf of Mexico region of the USA. Its new, undisclosed owners already operate Siwertell screw-type technology, recognizing its ability to protect the environment from dust and spillage, and to offer a cost-effective dry bulk handling solution, with low operating costs in comparison with other technologies.

“Our Siwertell screw-type unloaders are totally enclosed, delivering a dust-tight system, which is critical for protecting the environment, but is particularly essential for operations that are situated near and within populated areas,” explains Christopher Duffy, Area Sales Manager, Bruks Siwertell.

“The customer already operates several Siwertell road-mobile unloaders, at different locations in the US, as well as large-scale bulk terminal unloaders,” Duffy notes. “This familiarity with our technology and confidence with the equipment and its long-term performance, were critical factors in securing this new contract. Additionally, so were our service capabilities and the fact that we are able to deliver the new unloader within ten weeks of order confirmation.

“Siwertell road-mobile unloaders are a fantastic option for operators that need to serve many sites,” he continues. “This particular unit will move from place to place within the Gulf of Mexico, but is initially planned to work along the Mississippi River in the state of Louisiana. To achieve this, its owners plan to mount the unloader onto a barge, absolutely minimizing the requirements for any dock infrastructure.

“The barge, along with the unloader and auxiliary equipment, can, depending on agreements at various sites, technically be transported on the water to different locations. So, not only road-mobile, but also light enough to be barge-mounted and mobile on the water as well,” Duffy says.

The 10 000 S-type road-mobile unit was selected for its unloading capacity and ability to accommodate and discharge barges as well as vessels up to 10,000 dwt. It will offer a continuous rated capacity of 300t/h for the totally enclosed, dust-free handling of cement.

The unloader will be delivered to the US fully assembled from Sweden, with training commencing immediately. Full-scale operations are scheduled to start by mid-June, 2021.
