Russia’s largest coal stevedore Vostochny Port JSC, which is part of the holding run by Port Management Company LLC, reports that delivery of all the major specialized equipment for Phase 3 of Vostochny Port’s coal terminal is now complete.

Among the equipment delivered is two coal stackers, four reclaimers, two tandem wagon dumpers and two shiploaders, all of which will serve Berth No 51.

“Deliveries of equipment for Phase 3 of the coal terminal began last year,” notes Anatoly Lazarev, Managing Director of Vostochny Port JSC. “Stackers and reclaimers were assembled here, on the construction site. Shiploaders were delivered by sea in an assembled condition”.

The assembly and installation of wagon dumpers will begin as soon as underground bunker construction has been completed.

Vostochny Port JSC, which is situated in Primorsky Territory, remains Russia’s largest publicly available terminal equipped with wagon dumpers, conveyor systems, ship loading equipment and what is a unique multilevel system of magnetic separation.

The terminal exports coal from various producers. In 2016, it exported 23.5 million tonnes of coal, equivalent to 20% of all Russian port coal exports, as well as 30% of coal transshipment through Russia’s Far East Basin ports.

The new terminal facilities will be put into operation in 2017, boosting overall capacity at the port to 39 million tonnes. BC
