Siwertell care agreement: Road mobile unloaders
As part of its commitment to long-term service support, Bruks Siwertell offers planned Siwertell Care agreements for road-mobile ship unloaders, designed to ensure maximum equipment availability.
The condition, performance and safety of any machine depends on how well it is maintained and the timely replacement of wear, strategic and consumption parts. Road-mobile unloaders are no exception, and regular, planned service, ensures that they operate efficiently, with the longest possible service life.
Bruks Siwertell offers Siwertell Care agreements for its full range of ship unloaders, including road-mobile units. These are available for new and existing unloaders, and deliver a number of advantages.
Our preventative and planned service products make it easier to schedule services and plan and spread the cost of equipment maintenance. They offer a fixed cost for a set number of surveyor visits and guarantee that parts are in place. Agreements are also extremely cost-effective for the operator, with favorable discounts on spare parts included.
An agreement includes regular inspections, carried out by a certified Siwertell surveyor, to efficiently and accurately assess an unloader’s condition, safety and performance. They also include training that covers mechanical, instrumentation and electrical maintenance. Training occurs on a regular basis, topping-up operator maintenance knowledge at each visit.
To ensure that each agreement meets every operator’s need, they are modular, flexible, and tailor-made to respond to individual requirements. The frequency of surveyor visits is a key consideration and is why we suggest specific timeframes, depending on the operation and unloader type.
Each visit generates a report, which covers an overview of the maintenance training and work carried out. It can include any requirements for special attention, maintenance, repair or upgrade, and recommendations for any further investigation, assistance or training needs. Spare parts and guidance with regard to obsolete components or systems is also covered.
Our next-generation road-mobile unloaders are now being fitted with the Dell Edge Gateway, an Internet of things (IoT) device, which enables extensive monitoring, follow-up, support and trouble-shooting through safe, remote access.
If an unloader is fitted with such a device, remote, web-based support can be included as part of the maintenance agreement.
