Cemex adds Siwertell road-mobile ship unloading capabilities to US operations
27 Jan 2023
Bruks Siwertell has delivered a new Siwertell road-mobile ship unloader for dust-free cement handling operations in Belle Chasse, Louisiana, USA for returning customer, Cemex. The 10 000 S next-generation unit adds to a portfolio of Siwertell technology used by the Mexico-based multinational building materials company.
“We are the only company able to offer a mobile ship unloader around this size,” explains Pedro Alfaro, Project Development Engineer, Bruks Siwertell. “This was a significant driver for the contract, along with our ability to deliver the unit within a short timeframe.
“The road-mobile system also offers a great deal of flexibility, enabling the operator to easily transport ship unloading capabilities between sites,” Alfaro continues. “It is now working hard, and keeping up with significant rises in cement demands.”
Siwertell screw-type technology has totally enclosed conveying lines, which ensure no spillage and keeps fugitive dust to an absolute minimum. “Environmental protection was another key element behind Siwertell technology being selected,” he adds.
The ship unloader was delivered towards the end of 2022 and offers a continuous rated cement handling capacity of 300t/h and can discharge vessels up to 10,000 dwt.
