Cargotec has secured a new contract for two Siwertell road- mobile unloaders from Medcem Global Pazarlama AS, in Turkey. This is the second order from Turkey in less than a month. The 10 000 S trailer-based, diesel-powered Siwertell ship unloaders will be built at the Siwertell fabrication plant in Bjuv, Sweden and the delivery is scheduled for October and November this year.

The unloaders will be used to discharge cement at a rated capacity of 300tph (tonnes per hour). Each will be fitted with a dust filter and double bellows system for loading trucks for onward transportation by road. “The Siwertell mobile unloader has a reputation as one of

the most reliable unloading systems available on the market today,” says Jörgen Ojeda, sales director for Siwertell Mobile Unloaders. “With more than 100 road-mobile unloading systems delivered worldwide, they have earned a high profile reputation as state-of-the-art unloading equipment. This was one of the reasons that Medcem Global Pazarlama chose this particular system.”

“Other advantages that influenced the client’s decision include the flexibility and high capacity that these systems offer, in combination with low operational and maintenance costs. As there is no need for any preparatory on-site engineering works, the mobile unloaders are available to start operations immediately upon delivery,” 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 coal, cement, fertilizer, agribulk, clinker, sulphur and grain. Siwertell products and solutions are all designed to ensure environmentally-friendly and efficient cargo operations.
