Transportation of coal by sea
Shipping from different ports in Russia, depending on the destination port. We find the most efficient way to transport the coal from the mines to the Port of Loading.
Bulk carriers of different sizes will carry the coal to the destination – Small, Handysize, Handymax, Panamax, Capesize. In case there are limitations in the port of discharge, smaller carriers will transport the coal from the larger carriers – to the discharge port.
Rail transportation is used for domestic customers and Neighboring Countries such as China.
Automated machines in the mines load the coal into large wagons, each carrying approximately 65 MT, and then to the destination.
Transportation by Trucks
In certain circumstances coal is transferred by trucks. This method is less efficient and is used in areas where the infrastructures are poor.
