Since the opening of the navigation season, the Shakhtersk Coal Seaport, which is part of the Eastern Mining Company, has shipped its 100th coal bulk carrier. The jubilee vessel MV GLORIEVER with 63 000 t of coal on board, mined at the Solntsevo coal mine, went to consumers in China. In the 2020 season, the volume of coal products shipped to panamax vessels amounted to almost 80% of the total.
"The growth of coal shipment through the coal seaport of Shakhtersk occurs annually. This is influenced by an increase in the port's capacity, the implementation of a number of investment programmes for the technical re-equipment of the company's onshore and offshore facilities. The planned total volume of loading on ships in August 2020 will amount to more than 1.8 million t. In just a month, it is planned to handle 28 vessels in the sea coal port of Shakhtersk," commented Anatoly Balakin, Executive Director of UMPSh.
