SUEK’s Daltransugol coal terminal has handled 10 million t of coal so far this year, the first time the milestone has been hit over a six month period.

Daltransugol is the largest coal terminal in the Russian Far East and ships coal to the Asia-Pacific region. Last year, the terminal handled 18.3 million t of coal.

“Achieving such results become possible thanks to the modernization of the terminal equipment, the introduction of new highly-efficient technology [and the] well coordinated and professions work of the whole team at Daltransugol,” SUEK said in a press release.

The terminal is currently undertaking a further upgrade to increase its capacity. The first stage of this project – a connecting route between the Vanino Railways park station and Daltransugol – was opened in early June.

Daltransugol was opened in 2008 with an initial capacity of 12 million t. SUEK is Russia’s largest coal company, supplying 27.5% of the country’s coal in 2014 – some 98.9 million t. It is also one of the largest coal exporters, shipping 38.7 million t in 2014.
