According to the results of May, the volume of monthly shipment of coal at the offshore terminal of the Eastern Mining Company in Shakhtersk exceeded 1 million t. Despite unfavourable weather conditions on most days of the month, employees of the Shakhtyorsk coal port managed to increase the indicators by 120 000 t relative to the planned 880 000 t.

Production achievements are a direct consequence of the investment program for the technological re-equipment of the port. Since the beginning of the year two new stackers have been working in Shakhtersk. These are shiploaders with a capacity of 1000 tph, which serve the fleet renewed last year with a cargo capacity of 500 t. In addition, in 2017, port grapples with a volume of gripping jaws of 14 m3 were replaced.

The company also plans to replenish its production facilities with a re-equipped Emso-1 loader, which will increase daily transshipment rates to 52 000 - 53 000 t.

"Of course, the new equipment contributes to the efficiency of our work," explains Yuri Gvozdikov, Executive Director of the Shakhtyorsk Coal Port. "But the team also wants to prove itself. We are motivated by the result. In June, we already planned to beat the current record.”

The offshore terminal of the Shakhtersk coal port is the largest coal terminal in the region. In 2017, the volume of coal shipment here amounted to 4.6 million t. In plans for 2018 to ship 8 million t. To dynamically develop terminal capacity, VGK invests in the renovation of port infrastructure, equipment and in the development of the raid fleet.
