Siwertell, part of Cargotec has recently received and delivered an order for a road mobile unloader for Jah Multi Industrial Ltd, based in Banjul, Gambia.
Following its delivery from Sweden, the unit was commissioned and taken into commercial operation at Banjul in November, 2014.
The diesel-powered Siwertell 10,000 S road-mobile unloader with a double bellows system and dust filter will be used to unload cement.
Jörgen Ojeda, Director, Mobile Unloaders, Siwertell said: “Our customer investigated the market very carefully and came to the conclusion that a mechanical unloading system would best suit its needs.
“This decision was based on a number of references and an appreciation of our long and extensive experience in the mobile unloader market.
“The cement market is quite volatile and demand may arise in areas which, due to lack of infrastructure and functioning logistics, can pose serious obstacles. In such areas our mobile unloaders are usually the first to 'hit the ground running' because they require almost no infrastructure to start up a cement import operation.”
