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 300tph. The order was received in September 2015 and the delivery is planned for March 2016.
Commenting on the order, Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Siwertell Mobile Unloaders, said: "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 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.
