    Rosterminalugol announces a record-high monthly shipment of coal

    Rosterminalugol JSC, the largest dedicated coal port in the Baltic region, part of Russia’s largest coal port holding Port Management Company LLC, says its monthly loading reached a record high level throughout the terminal history. As of 31 March 2017, the terminal loaded 1.897 mln t of coal (in March 2016, the company loaded 1.155 mln t of cargo). According to the company, the milestone tonne was loaded onto the Golden Opportunity. Currently, the Panamax ship 71,000 t of coal is heading for Europe.

    The company attributes the record high result of March 2017 to state-of-the-art methods of direct loading (from wagons to vessels without unloading at storage facilities). 

    The previous record was registered in September 2016 (1.848 mln t of cargo). 

    In March 2017, the terminal handled 30 vessels with average loading rate of 63,200 t per shift (12 hours). Monthly unloading exceeded 1.963 mln t of coal (27,377 wagons), which is also a record high result (the previous one was registered in July 2016 – 25,074 wagons). Average daily unloading rate was 883 wagons (maximum unloading rate - 541 and 1,005 wagons per shift and per day accordingly).

    Rosterminalugol JSC (port Ust-Luga, Leningrad Region) is the largest dedicated coal terminal in the North-West region of Russia. The terminal built with the application of the innovative technologies is intended to supply Russian coal produced in Kuzbass and other coal fields to the customers in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Latin America. The terminal was founded in 1996 under the programme on establishment of a commercial seaport in Ust-Luga. Phase II of the port – automated transshipment facility – was put into operation in 2006 in the presence of RF President Vladimir Putin. In 2016, Rosterminalugol entered the holding run by Port Management Company LLC. 

    In 2016, throughput of Rosterminalugol grew by 3.4%, year-on-year, to a record high result of 18 mln t (over 60% of coal transshipment in the ports of Russia’s Baltic Basin). In 2016, Managing Port Company LLC launched the project on further modernization of the terminal.

    The port’s three lines ensure a complete cycle of operations including automatic unloading, treatment and magnetic cleaning, storage and loading onto seagoing ships including panamax and capsize bulk cargo carriers, customs and shipping paperwork. Environmental safety at the port is ensured by state-of-the-art dust suppression and storm water control systems. In 2016, Rosterminalugol celebrated its 20th anniversary.
