A Turkish construction services company, Mussa Insaat Dis Ticaret Ltd of Istanbul, placed an order with Cargotec for a standard road-mobile Siwertell 10 000 S cement unloader. The trailer based, diesel powered unit will have a rated discharge capacity of 300t/h and is scheduled for delivery in mid-May.
"While the unloader's primary location will be in the western part of Libya, our customer is planning to use it for cement unloading operations at several sites along the Libyan coast," said Jörgen Ojeda, Sales Director for Siwertell mobile unloaders. "This demonstrates the significant commercial and operational advantages of our road mobile systems. It is easy to move them from one port to another and, once at the new location, one man can have the unloader ready for operation within an hour."
The new unloader will be equipped with a double bellows system and dust filter, which deliver consistently high levels of efficiency and environmental protection.
Mr Ojeda said factors influencing the customer's decision to place the order included the well documented reliability of Siwertell mobile unloaders, along with their high unloading capacity and low operational and maintenance costs. Siwertell's ability to deliver the unit with a short lead time was also highly appreciated.
"This order has a special significance for us in view of the area's recent history," he added. "We take great pride in being part of the re-construction of Libya and in helping the Libyan people to a brighter future."
Originally developed for handling cement, road mobile Siwertell unloaders from Cargotec can handle a wide range of commodities. They represent one of the most reliable, environmentally-friendly and sustainable systems available.
