Siwertell awarded in London
Cargotec subsidiary Siwertell has won its fifth prestigious International Bulk Journal (IBJ) Award, for a joint submission with its customer Peel Ports in the Best Ship Loading/Unloading System category.
“This latest win sends a clear message to anyone in the market for a dry bulk handling system that Siwertell is the first-choice for anyone whose priorities are capacity, safety, environmental issues and overall performance,” says Emily Brækhus Cueva, marketing manager, Siwertell.
The IBJ judges noted that Peel Ports’ new 100 million-pound biomass terminal at the Port of Liverpool greatly increases berth capacity, enabling quick vessel turnaround and vastly reducing dust emissions. The terminal was constructed using two fully-enclosed Siwertell 790-D screw-type ship unloaders, and is capable of supplying Drax power station with up to 10 train loads of wood pellets per day.
Finnish company Cargotec is a leading provider of cargo and load handling solutions.
