    JSC Vostochny Port (part of Port Management Company LLC) specializing in handling export coal and now implementing the dedicated port expansion Phase 3 project, has taken delivery of the final package of equipment necessary for the operation of two covered tandem car dumpers, the Port Management Co. said in a press release. The equipment set includes four electricity-driven locos for transfer of coal loaden gondola cars into the coal unloading station.

    The electric locos were designed on the basis of the TEM electric locomotive with participation of the PMC LLC' specialists, taking into account requirements of JSC Vostochny Port. One such electric loco is able to push / haul more than 20 coal loaded cars at a time. Rotary tandem car dumpers of the expansion third phase project are designed for simultaneous unloading within three minutes of four railcars with a total capacity of more than 300 tonnes of coal.

    "The electric pushers are designed to work on the phase three expansion and are one-of-its-kind as compared with other coal ports. They are powered by powered by electricity from overhead lines and provide autonomous operation of the rotary car dumpers without using the services of a railyard. Four electric pushers are designed for the uninterrupted transfer of loaded cars into the covered unloading station", says Evgeny Arekhta, Chief Engineer Vostochny Port JSC.

    Vgrangel, Primorsky Krai based Vostochny Port JSC is Russia's largest dedicated open access coal port using covered stations for unloading and transfer of coal, conveyor equipment, rotary car dumpers, shiploaders and the second-to-none system of multi-stage magnetic coal separation. The port handles coal mined and exported by Russian coal companies. In 2016 coal throughput at the terminal reached 23.5 million tonnes, a fifth of all coal exports from Russia's seaports and about 30% of coal transshipment in the ports of the Far Eastern basin.

    Since the port completion 390 million tonnes of coal have been exported through the facility and 6.6 million rail cars have been handled, 28,000 vessels have been received at the port berths. Over the past ten years, JSC Vostochny Port has shipped more than 200 million tonnes of coal, an all-time record among all Russian coal ports.

    Vostochny Port JSC is a free access terminal, open to all coal producers. The enterprise's main objective is the increase in coal throughput and the best quality of cargo handling services: ensuring an uninterrupted supply chain and loading the commodity to the most efficient types of vessels for the formation of new supply routes.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Vostochny Port JSC LLC is implementing an ambitious coal terminal’s Phase 3 investment project, including the construction of the federal railway infrastructure. New terminal facilities are scheduled for commissioning in 2017 and this will enable the enterprise to increase the port's capacity to 39 million tonnes in 2019. Long-term coal supply to Vostochny Port is secured by coal volumes delivered from Kuzbass and other coal mines of Russia. The powers of the sole executive body of Vostochny Port JSC are exercised by Port Management Company LLC.

    Port Management Company LLC is Russia's major coal port holding that exercises the powers of a single executive body of largest dedicated coal ports based in the Baltic Sea region (Rosterminalugol JSC, Ust-Luga, Leningrad Region) and in the Far East (Vostochny Port JSC, Wrangel  Bay, Primorsky Territory).Total coal throughput by the 2016 year-end results of the holding's stevedoring companies reached 41.5 million tonnes, which is more than one third of all seaborne coal exports from Russia. The commodity is exported to more than 30 countries in Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region. By 2019, according to PMC' estimates the total annual coal throughput across marine coal terminals will increase to 56.5 million tonnes.

    The PMC LLC was founded in 2008. Since then coal volumes handled at Vostochny Port leaped by more than 60%, and in 2016 totaled 23.5 million tonnes. Between 2010 and 2017, the PMC Holding implemented a program of production optimization, handling equipment modernization and upgrade.

    In 2016, another stevedoring company JSC Rosterminalugol became member of the PMC Holding. Following the 2016 year-end results coal volumes at Rosterminalugol terminal reached a record high of 18.1 million tonnes.
