    Vostochny Port JSC (part of the holding run by Port Management Company LLC) says it is handling the 251st Capesize bulk carrier throughout its history.

    The 180,000 DWT Star Pauline is being loaded with 150,000 t of coal of the highest quality bound for the premium market of S. Korea.

    “Vostochny Port JSC is the only stevedore in the Primorsky Territory able to handle large capacity bulkers with deadweight of more than 180,000 t, – says Anatoly Lazarev, Managing Director of Vostochny Port JSC. – That is possible owing to natural depth of the fairway (up to 22 metres) and the depth at the berths of the dedicated coal terminal (16.5 metres).”

    All in all, Vostochny Port has handled 250 Capesize bulk carrier with deadweight exceeding 91,000 t. Those ships exported more than 26 mln t of coal.

    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.

    Throughout its operation history the port shipped 390 mln t of coal and handled 6.6 mln railcars and 28,000 ships. Over the recent decade, coal exports  from Vostochny Port exceeded 200 mln t, a record high result among all coal ports of Russia. 

    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.
