    Vostochny Port JSC, operator of Russia’s largest dedicated coal port (run by Port Management Company, PMC LLC) is assembling two overhead railway structures linking Phase 3 of the coal terminal with the infrastructure of Nakhodka-Vostochnaya station of the Far East Railway. Reconstruction of a part of Artem-Nakhodka-Vostochny Port highway is also underway. The works are estimated at RUB 360 million, says press center of Vostochny Port JSC.

    The two overhead railways with total length of some 90 meters will link Vostochny Port’s Phase 3 with non-public railway lines of railway park Novy (for accepting loaded railcars) and with public railway lines of Nakhodka-Vostochnaya station (for empty railcars departure).

    The works on the highway are to be completed in May 2018.

    The Novy park completion is scheduled for QI’2019. The park will number 12 non-public railway lines able to accommodate trains of 71 railcars each. Total length of the lines will be 19 km.

    Vostochny Port’s Phase 3 is the largest private port investment project in the Far East of Russia. The total amount of investments of the port holding company represents more than 32 billion rubles, of which 4.7 billion rubles are investments in the reconstruction and expansion of the departure yard for the empty railcars and the construction of the yard for receiving the loaded railcars at the station “Nakhodka-Vostochnaya” of the Far-Eastern Railway. After putting into commercial operation, the new railway infrastructure of the departure yard for the empty railcars will be transferred to the possession of JSC "Russian Railways". 

    The project was presented to Vladimir Putin, the President of the Russian Federation, by Maxim Sokolov, the Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, in March 2018, within the framework of the Congress of the Union of Transport Workers held in Moscow.

    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 2017 coal throughput at the terminal reached 23.2 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.

    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 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 39-40 mln t in 2019. The coal will be delivered from Kuzbass and other coal fields of Russia.

    In 2017, Vostochny Port fulfilled the plan for January-December having handled 23.2 million tonnes of premium quality coal. In the 12-months period Vostochny Port handled more than 317,000 gondola car and loaded 539 vessels. In October the company achieved another record with average daily handling of 67,000 tonnes. On October 16, Vostochny Port loaded 83,800 tonnes of coal to the bulk carrier FPMC B108 bound for Taiwan. It took 30 hours to load the ship. In November, Vostochny Port celebrated the 400-millionth tonne from the date of its foundation. The milestone tonne was loaded onto the MBA GIOVANNI.

    A sole executive body of Vostochny Port JSC is 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). In 2017, total coal throughput of the holding's stevedoring companies reached 48.2 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.

    Port Management Company's specialised coal terminals Vostochny Port and Rosterminalugol are fitted with the cutting-edge equipment for indoor transshipment of coal. A specific feature of the holding’s activities is the search and introduction of the best technologies available to increase coal transshipment and improve environmental safety. The ports boast the world’s best equipment, unique import substitution technologies and self-engineered products.
