Japanese company Taiheiyo Engineering has ordered two Cargotec's MacGREGOR bulk cement selfunloading systems to be installed on two coastal cement carriers, guaranteeing high capacity cargo discharging, low power consumption and high reliability.
The cement selfunloading systems will be installed on each of two cement carriers designed for coastal cement distribution. These will have a loading capacity of 400t/h and a discharging rate of 250t/h. The delivery of the equipment to Japan is in 2010. Patrik Wilén, product and sales manager for self-unloading systems, states that MacGREGOR has enjoyed close co-operation with Taiheiyo Engineering Corporation for many years, supplying numerous units of this type of equipment. “The advantages of using a MacGREGOR system when handling this particular material is its ability to achieve high capacities at a low power consumption with maintained high reliability,” he continued.
