Singapore's Jurong Port is cleaning up its bulk handling operations by introducing more efficient ship unloaders.

Bruks Siwertell will deliver three new Siwertell ship unloaders to the port to help ensure the environment-friendly handling of Singapore’s cement imports.

“The new units, like all Siwertell unloaders are totally enclosed, and will secure the continuation of extremely efficient, high-capacity cement handling for the port, without dust emissions or spillage, so no cement is wasted and the environment is protected,” said Ola Jeppsson, Bruks Siwertell sales manager, APAC.

Strict standards

Singapore upholds strict environmental standards in cement handling and Jurong Port works closely with its local government authorities on establishing requirements and measures to minimise fugitive dust from industrial operations.

As the world’s largest common user cement terminal for over twenty years, Jurong Port’s Cement Terminal started off with three high-capacity Siwertell ship unloaders that collectively met the cement handling needs of multiple smaller import terminals.

“It is now time to retire two of those hard-working unloaders,” said Tan Wee Meng, chief technical officer, Jurong Port.

“The new units will continue their legacy of impressive through-ship efficiencies and will work alongside one of the older units, which will remain in service. Together they will handle Singapore’s cement import volumes.”

Like their predecessors, the three new ST 490-M screw-type rail-travelling unloaders will each discharge cement, fly ash and cement slag from vessels up to 50,000 dwt at a continuous rated capacity of 800t/h.

Two of the new unloaders are scheduled for delivery in May 2022 and the third by the end of 2022.
