Siwertell delivers road-mobile unloaders for cement-handling operations in Libya & Vietnam
Published: 05 February 2016


Siwertell, part of Cargotec, has delivered two more of its 10 000 S road-mobile unloaders for cement unloading operations in Libya and Vietnam. The new trailer-based, diesel-powered machines are fitted with a double bellows system and dust filters and can handle cement at a rated capacity of 300tph.
 
Following an order signed with Tenovar International Ltd in Malta in late June 2015, the first unloader was delivered promptly in August the same year. In February 2016 it will be commissioned in Tobruk, Libya and will operate for Mediterranean Cement, also known as Al Bahar Al Mutawaset Cement.
 
The second unloader was ordered in November 2015 by Koastal Industries Pte Ltd, on behalf of leading Vietnamese cement exporter, the Vissai Cement Group and was also delivered only a month later in December 2015. It will be used for cement unloading at two sites in Vietnam and was ordered as part of the Group's ongoing expansion plans. The contract includes spare parts appropriate for two years of operation. Commissioning is scheduled for spring 2016.
 
The Vissai Group's operation will use its mobile unloader at a number of ports in central Vietnam, separated by distances of up to around 300km, notes Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Siwertell Mobile Unloaders.
