In September this year Siwertell, part of Cargotec, received and delivered an order for a road mobile unloader for Jah Multi Industrial Ltd, based in Banjul, Gambia. Following its delivery from Sweden, the unit was commissioned and taken into commercial operation in November.
 
The trailer-based, diesel-powered, Siwertell 10 000 S road-mobile unloader with double bellows system and dust filter will be used to unload cement at a rate of 300tph.
 
"Our customer investigated the market very carefully and came to the conclusion that a mechanical unloading system would best suit its needs," says Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Mobile unloaders, Siwertell.
 
 "The cement market is quite volatile and demand may arise in areas which, due to lack of infrastructure and functioning logistics, can pose serious obstacles," Mr Ojeda continues. "In such areas our mobile unloaders are usually the first to 'hit the ground running' because they require almost no infrastructure to start up a cement import operation," he adds.
