Cargotec is to deliver a Siwertell 5000S mobile unloader to the Russian Black Sea port of Yeysk, where it will be used to handle cement. The unit, which is being built in Sweden, was expected to be delivered in February and provide a flexible, low-cost option for cement handling.

The operator will be the UK company TAD Enterprises, which currently makes use of a mobile pneumatic unloader, but is not happy with its performance, particularly since the unit requires high levels of maintenance. Once operational, the new unloader will be able to handle cement at a capacity of 300 tonnes per hour. It will also be fitted with a dust filter for environmental impact reasons.
