Bruks Siwertell will also supply the complete screw conveyor system for transporting dry bulk material from the unloader to a storage dome, along with support structures and walkways.

The Siwertell 490 M-type unloader offers a continuous rated cement handling capacity of 800 tph and is designed to accommodate vessels up to 65 000 dwt. It will be assembled on site and is planned for delivery in February 2024.

Magnus Rundqwist, Director Global Bulk Sales, Bruks Siwertell, comments:

“This latest contract continues a long-standing run of Siwertell systems ordered for cement handling operations in the US.

“Siwertell screw-type technology has a worldwide reputation for efficient, high-capacity, environment-friendly cement handling and this unit will deliver exactly that.

“Totally enclosed Siwertell unloaders draw material into the vertical screw conveyor using a unique inlet feeder, which operates below the surface of the material, eliminating the risk of spillage and minimising dust creation. They also have low power-consumption demands.

“Our global capabilities mean that we were able to offer a competitive unloading solution, complete with conveyors and storage dome. Once operational, this state-of-the-art cement terminal will set a new industry standard.”
