Bruks Siwertell has been recognised as making a positive contribution to environmental protection and sustainability, winning this year’s well-respected International Bulk Journal (IBJ) Environmental Protection Award.
The award acknowledges the organisation that has made a material contribution to reducing pollution either in and around dry bulk ports or at sea. “We are passionate about environmental protection, and are delighted to have this recognised through the IBJ awards,” says Emily Brækhus Cueva, Director of Marketing Communications, Bruks Siwertell Group.
“We know that, on the face of it, the dry bulk handling industry may not immediately generate the image of environmental guardianship. However, there are pioneers within every industry, and ours is no exception.
“At Bruks Siwertell, we strive to ensure that our machines positively contribute to pollution reduction within the sectors that they serve,” Ms Brækhus Cueva continues. “As part of our wide portfolio, we deliver ship unloaders, loaders and conveyors with the four key elements for environmental protection: minimal spillage, no dust creation, low noise levels, and the highest efficiency rates on the market, minimising fuel consumption demands. This makes our installations friendly to the environment that surrounds them, to the people working directly on site, as well as to the people and animals living within close proximity.
“Environmental sustainability must be a core element within our industry,” she adds. “For example, we are watching the world shift to find the best solution for sustainable energy production, and believe that it is important that equipment suppliers, like us, are able to adapt, develop and deliver systems that best support the use of renewable resources.”
This year’s award ceremony was held on 25th November at the Grand Elysee hotel, Hamburg, Germany and attended by about 450 guests from across the world. Receiving the award on behalf of Bruks Siwertell was Marketing Manager, Malin Pekberg, Service Coordinator, Johanna Strandmark, and Sales Manager, Bo Ljung.
