Bruks Siwertell installs shipunloading system for Colonial

Bruks Siwertell has completed the installation of a new high-capacity Siwertell shipunloader at Colonial Group’s Georgia Kaolin Terminals, in Savannah, Georgia, USA. The fully enclosed screw-type system now delivers very efficient dust-free cement handling, supporting the company’s strategy for sustainable cement import growth.

“This Siwertell unloader is a great machine, ideally suited for the terminal,” said Bengt Svensson, Contract Manager, Bruks Siwertell. “It will play a significant role in helping Colonial achieve its ambitious efficiency and environmental goals; early feedback has been extremely positive.”

Bruks Siwertell worked closely with Colonial and its engineering team to develop a customised solution that would successfully integrate with the existing infrastructure at the terminal.

The flexibility of Siwertell unloader technology enables it to handle various designs and capacities of geared vessels, and supports the company’s switch from bagged cement deliveries to bulk.

“Colonial now benefits from the terminal’s increased unloading capacity, which in turn delivers faster vessel turnarounds on the jetty, and with that, cost-savings,” Syemsson added.

Environmental considerations were also a key factor in Colonial’s choice of equipment, and because the Siwertell unloader has an enclosed dry bulk material conveying line, ensuring no dust emissions or spillage, it is permitted to operate within this historic port and complies with its strict environmental regulations.

The Siwertell 490 F-type ship unloader offers high through-ship efficiencies and a rated cement handling capacity of 800 tph, discharging vessels up to 55 000 DWT.
