Unloader to be used to discharge 300t/h cement at Shuaiba Port in Kuwait
Kuwait-based Acico Construction Co has bought a second road-mobile unloader from Siwertell, part of Cargotec.
The trailer-based, diesel-powered Siwertell 10000 S road mobile unloader will be used at Shuaiba Port in Kuwait to discharge cement at a rate of 300t/h. It will be equipped with a double bellows system to allow continuous unloading operations, and a dust filter. It is scheduled for delivery by the end of May.
“The growing numbers of satisfied customers placing repeat orders is a great confirmation of the high quality and efficiency of our unloading solutions,” said Jörgen Ojeda, director of mobile unloaders at Siwertell. “With its growing experience of operating and owning our mobile unloaders, Acico fully appreciates their flexibility and high capacity. Combined with their low operational and maintenance costs, these factors had a major impact on Acico’s decision to buy a second unloader.”
Siwertell mobile unloaders were originally designed for handling cement. As they do not need any local civil engineering works, they are able to work immediately following their delivery. Ojeda says that with short lead times the period between placing an order and going operational can be remarkably short.
Siwertell provides a range of unloaders for handling of bulk materials, and its road-mobile unloaders are suitable for handling free flowing dry bulk cargoes such as cement, alumina, sulphur, grain, feedstuff, and fertilisers.
Acico took delivery of its first mobile unit from Siwertell in July 2014.
