Caribbean: Sweden-based Bruks Siwertell has won a new contract to deliver a Siwertell enclosed screw-type ship loader for cement and clinker. It will serve a new cement plant being built by an unnamed end user in the Caribbean. The type-1B ship loader will deliver cement and clinker handling at a continuous rated capacity of 600t/hr, with a peak loading rate of 750t/hr, for vessels up to 20,000dwt. It will be delivered in 2021 and is scheduled to be operational later in the year.
“This is our first Siwertell loader installation in this particular region and it will have to work in one of the most earthquake-prone zones of the world,” said Axel Dahl, Sales Manager, Bruks Siwertell. “The cement industry in the area is currently undergoing some of its most advanced improvements in decades, and as part of this, environmental protection is very much under the magnifying glass.
