The new coal terminal at Nacala-a-Velha, in Mozambique, will dispatch its first consignment in December. The facility, which will serve markets in India, Europe, Asia and South America, is currently under construction. Coal will arrive from Moatize by rail, a distance of 912km. The 1,500m-long trains used will be headed by four locomotives hauling rakes of up to 100 wagons. To date, investment in the project has been $4.3 billion.
