An agri-bulk terminal in Mexico has taken delivery of a high-capacity ship unloader to help ensure efficient, environmentally friendly and careful material handling operations.

Bruks Siwertell’s rail-mounted Siwertell ST 640-M unloader is totally-enclosed and offers Gramosa Agroalimentos SA’s new agri-bulk terminal at the Port of Veracruz a continuous rated capacity of 1,200t/h, whilst minimising dust emissions.

“The unloader was chosen after out-performing all competitor systems during a four-month selection process,” said Patrik Henryson, sales manager at Bruks Siwertell.

The unloaders flexibility enables it to handle multiple different grains such as corn, rice, wheat, soya beans and canola seeds without any loss of efficiency or cargo quality.

No handling damage

“The 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,” said Gramosa Agroalimentos.

“The Siwertell system was selected after considering many factors and multiple equipment comparisons. Analysis included operating principles and mechanisms, investment costs, as well as operating costs.”

The new unloader was delivered fully-assembled from China via heavy-lift ship in October 2019 and will be tested and commissioned onsite in the Port of Veracruz by Bruks Siwertell when required.
