Mexican Agri-Bulk Terminal Orders Siwertell Unloader


Gramosa Agroalimentos SA, a Mexican-based agribusiness company, has ordered a high-capacity unloader from Siwertell to serve the company’s new agri-bulk terminal located in the Gulf of Mexico port, Veracruz.

The rail-mounted Siwertell ST 640-M unloader is a totally enclosed system with a rated capacity of 1,200t/h and will be used to handle grain, corn, soya bean meal and dried distillers grains with solubles (DDGS).

In a statement from Gramosa Agroalimentos, the company said: “The Siwertell system was selected after considering many factors and multiple equipment comparisons.

“An important factor was cargo loss and damage.

“The low conveying speed of the Siwertell screw-type unloader means that the grain is not damaged during handling, which will give us added value and differentiate us from our competition.”

The equipment is expected to be operational by mid-2019.
