Breakthrough Siwertell order for Black Sea grain terminal

02.12.2013 – Three new Siwertell loaders will provide high capacity grain loading at the major Ukrainian port of Illichevsk with minimal environmental impact and exemplary levels of efficiency and safety.

Cargotec has secured an important order to deliver three stationary Siwertell SBL 1600 loaders for installation at a grain terminal in the Ukrainian port of Illichevsk. The belt-type loaders, which are designed to handle vessels of up to 100,000 dwt, each have a grain loading capacity of 2,000t/h. It will be possible to use two loaders simultaneously to provide efficient, environmentally friendly grain loading services.

Ola Jeppsson, Siwertell Sales Manager at Cargotec, says this is an important breakthrough into the Ukrainian grain market for Cargotec. “The Black Sea region in general and Ukraine in particular is a hub for grain export and it has many new bulk export facilities at the planning stage. The Illichevsk terminal is the first grain terminal in the region using Siwertell equipment. This order will improve our chances of winning further contracts.”

Illichevsk Grain Port chose the Siwertell system because it represents an excellent technical solution at a reasonable price. “The system will be designed to minimise dust and eliminate spillages,” notes Mr Jeppsson.

The new loaders will be delivered in pre-assembled sections suitable for shipping. Delivery is scheduled for the end of 2014. The final mechanical construction work, electrical installation, testing and commissioning will be carried out on site under the supervision of Siwertell engineers. ­
