The port is reported to have a coal loading capability of 8 million tonnes per year.[2] In 2017, the Bengkulu Provincial Government announced it would pursue an export target of 50 million tons of coal per year.[3] The port is currently equipped with three coal loading conveyor belts.[4] In 2017, however, another source stated that the coal throughput reached 5.47 million tonnes (an increase from 4.83 in 2013).[2]

Proposed coal terminal

In July 2014 it was reported that Indonesia planned to build 14 dedicated coal terminals on the islands of Kalimantan and Sumatra in a bid to curb illegal coal exports. One of the proposed locations was Bengkulu. However the government was finding it difficult to obtain private funding for the terminals in the current environment of depressed coal prices.[5] There have been no updates on this proposal since 2014 (as of September 2021), so it has likely been shelved.
