Background

The port serves China's Fujian Province as well as the city of Fuzhou.[1] Fujian is a coastal province in southern China that is a major consumer of imported coal for its power stations.[2] The port handles coal, as well as cement, lead, and sand.[3]

The nearby Ningde Port merged with Fuzhou in 2009, leading to a total cargo throughput of 127 million tonnes in 2013.[4] The port is linked to several Chinese railways and highways and is connected to 75 international maritime routes.[5]

Throughout 2019-2020, coal importing restrictions were tightened at the Fuzhou Port as import quotas were depleting, so that only coal end-users such as local steel mills or power plants were able to receive imported coal.[6][7][8]

In 2020, two new berths were constructed, adding 2.8 million tonnes to the overall capacity of the port.[9][10]
