VEACRUZ, MEXICO — Bruks Siwertell recently delivered a high-capacity unloader to Gramosa Agroalimentos SA for its new agri-bulk terminal in Veracruz, Mexico.
“The unloader was chosen after out-performing all competitor systems during a four-month selection process,” said Patrik Henryson, sales manager, Bruks Siwertell.
The new rail-mounted Siwertell ST 640-M unloader, ordered in 2018, is totally-enclosed and offers the terminal a continuous rated capacity of 1,200 tph. It can handle a number of grains such as corn, rice, wheat, soybeans and canola seeds without any loss of efficiency or cargo quality.
At the time of the order, Gramosa Agroalimentos said that it chose a Siwertell unloader because of its performance across multiple grains.
“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 and will be tested and commissioned on site in Veracruz Port by Bruks Siwertell when required.
