Siwertell ship-unloader delivered to Veracruz

As reported by Bulk Materials International last month, terminal operator Gramosa Agroalimentos SA said its new equipment can both unload an 80,000dwt Panamax vessel in four days and load a 75-wagon block train in under eight hours.


Bruks Siwertell said that the ship-unloader, ordered in 2018, would ensure efficient, environment-friendly and careful materials handling at the new terminal.


“The unloader was chosen after out-performing all competitor systems during a four-month selection process,” said Patrik Henryson, sales manager at Bruks Siwertell.


The new rail-mounted Siwertell ST 640-M unloader is totally enclosed and offers the terminal a continuous rated capacity of 1,200 tph. Bruks Siwertell said its seamless flexibility enables it to handle a number of different grains such as corn, rice, wheat, soya beans and canola seeds without any loss of efficiency or cargo quality.


At the time of the order, Gramosa Agroalimentos said that it chose a Siwertell unloader because of its performance across multiple grains.


“The conveying speed of the Siwertell screw-type unloader means that the grain is not damaged during handling, which will give us added value and differentiate us from our competition,” said Gramosa Agroalimentos.


“The Siwertell system was selected after considering many factors and multiple equipment comparisons. Analysis included operating principles and mechanisms, investment costs, as well as operating costs.”
