With more than 100 scrap yards, Stena Recycling AB is one of the largest scrap and waste recyclers in Sweden. At the scrap yard in Malmo¨, a new SENNEBOGEN 830 has been working since mid 2014 and feeds the longest-working shredder in Sweden.

The longest-working shredder in Sweden has been running for over 25 years, with 3,400hp and a huge appetite for scrap. It is fed by a modern SENNEBOGEN 830 material handler that has been in operation at Stena Recycling AB in Malmo¨ since mid 2014. Production manager Magnus Persson reports that the company had already had very good experience with numerous SENNEBOGEN material handlers in Denmark,“After the first months, we were very satisfied with the performance and reliability. The simple maintenance, easy access to service, and the good support from the local dealer OP System are optimum.”

Painted in the blue company colour, the SENNEBOGEN 830 has a 164kW diesel engine and handling equipment along with a multi-shell grab with a maximum range of 17m. To prevent damage to the boom, stick protection was specially attached. Especially when material is thrown far up during loading, the wooden planking prevents the grapple from hitting the stick. The 830 of the current E- Series feeds the large shredder with around 700 tonnes of scrap metal per day, seven days per week. The operators especially like the comfortable, elevating Maxcab, which can be moved vertically by 2.7m and ensures the best possible overview — whether during shredder feeding or truck loading.
