Siwertell has secured an order for a new loading system from Irish mining company Boliden Tara Mines DAC.
The new system, to be located in Dublin Port’s Alexandra Basin, comprises a triple-enclosed belt-type ship loader, with luffing and slewing capabilities, a reversible shuttle-belt conveyor with dual remotely-operated connection points, as well as triple enclosed jetty and overland conveyor.
A majority of the machines use will be for the transfer of zinc and lead concentrates from rail wagons to a storage building, which will operate a conveyor belt that will take the contents to a quayside facility in Alexandra Basin.
Speaking about the new order, Peter Goransson, Sales Manager and Senior Advisor, Siwertell, said: “Our lengthy experience and expertise in bulk material loading was a significant factor in winning this contract, including the fact that no efforts were spared in designing a triple-enclosed loading system that will ensure as close to zero emissions as technologically possible for the operator.
“A high loading capacity, combined with easy system operation and low service and maintenance costs, were also significant factors in Boliden’s decision to invest in Siwertell’s market-leading technology.
“Additionally, it complies with best available technology (BAT) and reference document (BREF) regulations.”
