UK-based TAD Enterprises Ltd has signed a contract with Cargotec for a Siwertell 5 000 S mobile unloader for cement-handling operations in the Black Sea port of Yeysk, south of Rostov, in Russia. Delivery is planned for February 2014 from Cargotec's production plant in Bjuv, Sweden.

"The new Siwertell unit will offer the company a flexible, low cost cement handling operation," says Jörgen Ojeda, Siwertell sales director. "TAD Enterprises currently employs a pneumatic mobile unloader, but is not happy with its performance. The company also expressed concerns about the level of maintenance that this type of unloading system demands.

The diesel-powered, trailer-based Siwertell 5 000 S system will be used to load trucks alongside the berth for further transportation by road. It will be fitted with a double-bellows system for handling cement continuously at a rated capacity of 300tph. The unit will also have a dust filter system to ensure a low environmental impact.
