New Russian Coal Terminal Opens

The first phase of a new coal terminal being built approximately 5 kilometers northeast of Vanino on Muchke Bay in Russia’s Khabarovsk region has been completed according to the country’s Federal Marine and River Transport Agency Rosmorrechflot.
Being developed by VaninoTransUgol LLC, the new facility is to have an initial export capacity of 12 million tons, which will be boosted to 24 million tons during second phase expansion due to be completed by 2022.

VaninoTransUgol is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the large Russian coal mining enterprise “Kolmar” which controls most mining, processing and transportation of coal in the Russian Far East.
