Oman's leading cement producer, Raysut Cement Co, has ordered a high capacity road-mobile Siwertell unloading and conveying system from Cargotec for cement-handling operations at the ports of Duqm and Sohar, Oman.
The contract, which supports the company's expansion plans in Oman, comprises the delivery of a road-mobile Siwertell 10 000 S unloader unit and a road-mobile Siwertell PumpMaster blow pump conveying unit, commissioning, supervision, and spare parts.
The combination of screw type unloader and blow pump conveyor has a number of advantages including the low energy consumption of mechanical unloading combined with the convenience of pneumatic conveying.
The system will have a rated cement discharge and conveying capacity of 300t/h. "This is a particularly high value, considering that the distance from the unloader and blow pump unit to the silo top is about 270m with an elevation of about 40m," explains Peter Göransson, Siwertell sales manager.
He adds: "Raysut chose this system because it is one of the very few products on the market that offers such a high discharge capacity while remaining fully road mobile."
The system will be built at Cargotec's Siwertell manufacturing facilities in Bjuv, Sweden, and delivered by July 2014. It will serve the sultanate of Oman's eastern port of Duqm, located on the Arabian Sea, and one of its largest ports, Sohar, which is situated on the country's north coast in the Gulf of Oman.
