Vostochny Port boosts water supply to coal terminals
Vostochny Port JSC (Russia’s largest coal stevedore, part of the holding run by Port Management Company LLC) says it is boosting water supply to coal terminals as one of the environment protection measures.
The consumption of water for sprinkling and dust suppression systems is to be increased by 10,000 cbm per month.
The plan for development of environmental activities was developed back in 20107 in view of expected throughput expansion.
According to Anatoly Lazarev, Managing Director of Vostochny Port JSC, water consumption at coal terminals has increased more than 2.5 times from 2007 and exceeds 25,000 cbm per month today.
In 2016, minimum consumption was registered in May (50% of the monthly limit), maximum – in November (75%).
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.
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.
