Background

The port contains a 35,000-tonnage coal wharf, with annual capacity of 900,000 tonnes.[1] The Macun Port is part of the Haikou port, which also includes the Xiuying and Xinhai ports. The Macun Port's annual handling volume (for all materials including coal) is typically around 3.5 million tonnes.[2]

In 2016, around 9 billion RMB from public-private partnerships was used to make improvements at the Macun Port, including adding new vessel berths and a 'roll-on, roll-off' terminal (not for coal).[3]

In 2018, the Hainan Harbor & Shipping Holding Co., Ltd also began work on Phase III of their project to add new multi-purpose berths and terminals that would increase the port's overall capacity. They invested upwards of 1.5 billion RMB into the project, which is planned to be completed in 2021. They launched Phase IV in 2019 as well. There was no specific mention given to expanding coal capacity, however.[4][5]

Nearby coal plants

Macun-3 power station is a 250-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant located near the port in Hainan Province, China.[6]
