Following an order signed in early November 2013, Siwertell, part of Cargotec, delivered a road-mobile unloader to Muhammet Gu¨mu¨stas AS in Istanbul, Turkey, in December 2014. This is Siwertell’s third road-mobile unloader delivery to the operator since 2012.

“Satisfied customers placing repeat orders are testament to the quality and efficiency of our state- of- the-art unloading solutions,” says Jo¨rgen Ojeda, Director, Mobile Unloaders, Siwertell. “As an existing customer, Muhammet Gu¨mu¨stas is well aware of the advantages of using our mechanical unloading equipment, and has chosen Siwertell as a preferred supplier of unloading systems.

“Our customers are happy to prioritize quality, reliability and excellent service over the short-term attractions of making a slightly cheaper initial investment. Repeat customers also prove the value of our wider strategy of building and maintaining long-term relations with our customers as an effective pathway to success for all parties.”

The trailer-based, diesel-powered, Siwertell 10 000 S road mobile unloader will be used to discharge cement at 300 tonnes per hour. The unit was built at Siwertell’s manufacturing premises in Bjuv, Sweden. It is equipped with a double bellows system to allow continuous operation, and a dust filter to minimize dust creation.

“The mobile Siwertell unloader was originally designed for handling cement, so it is naturally perfect for the job.With its enclosed conveying line, this system is also environmentally-friendly as it ensures dust-free and high-capacity unloading operations,” adds Ojeda.

Siwertell ship unloaders and loaders are based on unique screw conveyor technology, in combination with belt conveyors and aeroslides, and can handle virtually any dry bulk cargo, such as alumina, biomass, cement, coal, fertilizers, grain and sulphur. Siwertell’s product portfolio includes ship unloaders, mobile ship unloaders, shiploaders, conveying systems and complete bulk terminal solutions, all of which are designed to ensure environmentally-friendly and efficient cargo operations.
