    In January-December 2016, Vostochny Port JSC (part of the holding run by Port Management Company LLC) totaled 23.5 mln t, up 3.4%, year-on-year, says the stevedore’s press center.

    According to the statement, it is a record high result of coal transshipment achieved by one company over one calendar year.

    “This achievement is the result of a multi-year investment programme started in 2011. The growth of the port’s throughput will continue, particularly with the commissioning of its Phase III in 2017”, said Anatoly Lazarev, Managing Director of Vostochny Port JSC.

    In December 2016, Vostochny Port handled 1,900 t of coal (+1%, year-on-year), the highest performance of the company in the month when handling of frozen coal needs more time. 

    In 2016, the stevedoring companies unloaded 324,000 open-top wagons including over 190,000 wagons of increased capacity (60%).  Maximum daily unloading over the port history was registered in November 2016 ─ 1,050 wagons (more than 70,000 t of coal). The port handled 526 vessels including 235 Panamax ships (45%) and 23 Capesize ships (4.4%).   

    The bulk of coal exported by Vostochny Port goes to S. Korea (41% of the port throughput), then comes Japan (26%) and China (11%). 

    Total investments of Vostochny Port in environmental activities in 2016 amounted to RUB 32.3 mln. Those resources were used to enhance the efficiency of systems for dust suppression systems, soil cleanup, treatment of storm and disposal water. Regular environmental monitoring performed by authorized laboratories shows better environmental performance of the port and compliance with all standards.  In December 2016, Vostochny Port JSC and Administration of Nakhodka municipality signed a 5-year agreement on cooperation in environmental safety activities. 

    In 2016, payments of the stevedoring company to the regional and local budges totaled almost RUB 4 bln. 

    In December 2016, Vostochny Port JSC entered the list of residents of the Free Port of Vladivostok with its investment project on construction of coal terminal’s Phase III in the Nakhodka municipality. Under the agreement with Far East Development Corporation, investments into the project will make RUB 17.2 bln. The project is expected to generate 619 jobs.

    Vostochny Port JSC (Primorsky Territory) is Russia’s largest publicly available terminal equipped with wagon dumpers, conveyor systems, ship loading equipment and a unique multilevel system of magnetic separation. The terminal exports coal produced by different coal companies of Russia. In 2016 the port handled 23.5 mln t of coal, one fifth of all coal exports via Russian seaports and about 30% of coal transshipment via the ports of Russia’s Far East Basin.

    In the Primorsky Territory, Vostochny Port JSC LLC is implementing an ambitious investment project on construction of the coal terminal’s Phase 3 including the construction of the federal railway infrastructure. New terminal facilities will be put into operation in 2017 allowing for port capacity to reach 39 mln t in 2019. The coal will be delivered from Kuzbass and other coal fields of Russia.

    A sole executive body of Vostochny Port JSC is Port Management Company LLC.
