Siwertell, part of Cargotec, secured a second order for a road-mobile ship unloader from Russian company PSR Primstroyresource, based in Vladivostok. The latest contract is for a next-generation, diesel-powered, trailer-based Siwertell 10 000 S unloader, fitted with a double bellows system and dust filter. It will be used to unload cement on the Island of Sakhalin at a rated capacity of 300t/h. The order was received in September 2015 and the delivery is planned for March 2016.
"Siwertell received this order with great pride and considers it an acknowledgement of the success of PSR's previous delivery," says Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Siwertell Mobile Unloaders.
"Siwertell's road-mobile unloaders were originally developed for handling cement, and so are ideally suited to this commodity.
"Our road-mobile unloaders are among the most reliable and environmentally friendly systems available for cement-handling operations. As there is no need for any preparatory civil engineering works, they can commence operations as soon as they arrive on site.
"PSR chose Siwertell again mainly because of its experience with its first road-mobile Siwertell unloader," says Mr Ojeda. "Other important factors were our reputation for quality and service, the unit's flexibility and high capacity and its low operational and maintenance costs."
In 2009, PSR needed an unloader to discharge cement directly into trucks and train wagons at a city centre location. Therefore quiet, dust-free operations were essential and it identified a Siwertell 5 000 S road-mobile unloader as the ideal solution.
The new unit has all the well proven attributes of PSR's first unloader. However as one of the 'New Generation' units it benefits from a number of advances including a major upgrade of the hydraulic system, completely new and future-proof electrical system, PLC control system and radio equipment, and upgraded EBS system on trailer.
With more than 100 mobile unloading systems operating worldwide, Siwertell has achieved an enviable reputation for market-leading flexible unloading equipment. "This contract from PSR adds to the growing list of follow up orders for mobile units from satisfied customers," says Mr Ojeda. "It further establishes Siwertell as the preferred choice of customers looking for flexible, reliable, high-quality mobile unloading systems."
