Out now: latest edition of Bulk Handling News
3 Jan 2024
Bruks Siwertell’s latest issue of its company magazine, Bulk Handling News, is now available to read. This year, the company is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of Siwertell unloading technology, and the establishment of the brand. To acknowledge its market impact over the decades, the magazine starts off with an anniversary feature.
“We are incredibly proud of our legacy,” says Peter Jonsson, CEO, Bruks Siwertell Group. “Our technology has revolutionized the dry bulk handling industry, with unmatched capacity, through-ship performance, and environmental credentials, and it is still setting the standard.”
These environmental credentials won industry recognition last year when Bruks Siwertell was awarded the International Bulk Journal (IBJ) Environment Protection Award (cargo handling) in acknowledgement of these efforts. This year, Bruks Siwertell Group will also publish its second full sustainability report.
Coverage of the award, along with other ways that Bruks Siwertell is making a positive environmental impact, feature throughout the issue. This includes biomass handling in ports, and addressing the importance of decarbonizing the airline industry. One such strategy is the introduction of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Derived from wood and agricultural waste and residue streams, supply of these fuels is developed with a focus on ecological sustainability and minimal greenhouse gas emissions.
“The acquisition of the Oregon-based engineering and manufacturing company, West Salem Machinery (WSM), last year, is significantly strengthening our agricultural and wood waste residue handling and processing. This puts us in a very good position to better serve the bioenergy and biomass markets, and especially new sectors such as SAF,” Jonsson explains.
Along with celebrating the history of Siwertell ship unloaders, the company is also focusing on the future. Introducing new ways to deliver customer support through next-generation service agreements, and the development of technological advances to improve efficiencies and mitigate risks when handling and conveying dry bulks.
