Siwertell’s responsibility was to design,
manufacture and ship the barge unloader Supervision of the assembly as well as commissioning were also included.
The unloader can be maneuvered both from a portable radio control box and an operator’s cabin. The machine travels on rails along the dock in the Potomac River.
The unloaded material is placed on a belt conveyor by a movable transfer trolley lifting the cover belt, providing a spillage free operation. The unloader is also equipped with a 16t hoist to lift a pay loader down to the barge for the final clean up.
