Siwertell, part of Cargotec, has received an order from Jaewoo Industries Co Ltd for the sixth Siwertell screw-type ship unloader at Taean Power Station in Korea. Due to be installed in December 2015 at the Taean power plant in Korea, the unloader will form part of the plant's 2,100MW expansion project, which is scheduled for completion in 2016.
The rail-mounted F-type ship unloader will discharge limestone at a rate of 200t/h. Incorporating key components manufactured in Sweden, much of the steel fabrication will be carried out locally in Korea, with the final mechanical assembly and electrical installation taking place on site at the power plant.
The limestone unloader will join an existing Siwertell limestone unloader and four Siwertell coal unloaders at Taean Power Station. "Jaewoo made the decision to place this order primarily based on the benefits they have noticed with our totally enclosed screw-type unloaders already installed on site, one of them which has been in operation for more than 10 years," said Ola Jeppsson, Sales Manager at Siwertell. "Jaewoo considers the unloaders' low environmental impact, their reliability, efficiency and quality of design being great advantages."
