Siwertell road-mobile cement unloader delivered to USA operator
1 Sep 2021
Bruks Siwertell has delivered a Siwertell road-mobile ship unloader to American organization, Ozinga. The next-generation unit promises to secure environmentally friendly cement handling for the company; an operator that prides itself on delivering innovative solutions to its customers.
“This is Ozinga’s first Siwertell ship unloader,” says Ken Upchurch, VP Sales and Marketing, Bruks Siwertell. “The Ozinga team invested time in researching various types of unloading equipment and concluded that the Siwertell road-mobile unloader was the best solution for its application.“
Ozinga specializes in concrete, dry bulk materials, and natural gas energy solutions, and has an extensive network of truck, rail, barge, and ship terminals. Its operations are predominantly focused in the US mid-west, where the new ship unloader is making its debut.
For operators that serve multiple ports or facilities with minimal or no infrastructure, Siwertell road-mobile ship unloaders offer flexibility, efficiency and environmental protection. “They have a worldwide reputation for reliability and are a popular choice for cement handlers,” adds Upchurch.
Ordered in 2020 and delivered later in the same year, the 5000 S road-mobile unloader offers totally enclosed, environment-friendly cement handling operations, with the unit delivering a continuous rated unloading capacity of 300t/h for vessels up to 5,000 dwt.
The trailer-based, diesel-powered system is fitted with dust filters and a double-bellows discharge arrangement with an automatic shifting function. It also features advanced digital technology for diagnostics and trouble-shooting.
