Terminal - France
Siwertell was awarded the turn-key contract for this Le Havre cement terminal due to being able to supply a combination of unloader, loader, conveyors and flat storage
The terminal is designed for discharging cement from ocean going vessels, conveying it to a rebuilt flat storage building and back to the jetty barge, to load river barges or to convey the cement to silos for loading trucks.
Cement is conveyed from the jetty barge by a horizontal screw conveyor and a belt conveyor to the horizontal screw conveyors in the flat storage building.
Total storage capacity of the terminal is about 25,000t, and it’s designed to use the same conveyors for unloading and loading, by having the horizontal screw conveyors and the belt conveyor to transport cement in both directions.
This as well as other functions are controlled by an advanced PC based control system. For the bulk truck loading an automatic PC based weighing system is installed.
Scope of supply
