Exhibition booth of Vostochny Port JSC was visited by RF Transport Minister Yevgeny Ditrikh on 4 September 2019, the first day of the 5th Eastern Economic Forum, the stevedoring company says in a press release.
Vadim Baibak, General Director of Vostochny Port, told the official about the recent achievements of Russia’s largest coal stevedore.
Special attention was paid to Phase 3 of Vostochny Port’s coal terminal, implementation of which has been successfully completed in 2019. It was emphasized that the project provides for closed transshipment of coal and lets the terminal increase its throughput to 50-55 million tonnes per year.
Vostochny Port JSC (Vrangel settlement, Primorsky Region) is Russia’s largest specialized terminal with high-tech coal transshipment.
Vostochny Port is a free access facility open for all coal manufacturers of Russia. In 2018, it handled 24.3 million tonnes of cargo.
The terminal features 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.
Vostochny Port is the first coal port in the Far East that obtained a certificate of compliance with ISO 14001:2015 “Environmental Management System: Requirements and Application Guide.” The certificate confirms the company’s compliance with both Russian and international requirements on environmental risk management.
Vostochny Port has implemented the most ambitious private investment project on construction of the coal terminal’s Phase 3 including the construction of the federal railway infrastructure. The project costing over RUB 40 billion was implemented through public private partnership without involving state financing. Phase 3 will let the terminal increase its throughput to 50-55 million tonnes per year.
