Port Posiet

From Global Energy Monitor

Port Posiet, also known as the Port of Posyet, is an ice-free port situated on the Japanese Sea coast south of Vladivostok, in Russia’s Primorye region. It handles coal exports to Pacific Asia. It is owned by Russian coal mining company Mechel.

The port's annual capacity increased from 5.3 to 7 million tonnes in 2014. Mechel said it plans to increase capacity to 12 million tonnes annually.[1]

Mechel exports coal mined at its coal deposits in Yakutugol and Yuzhny Kuzbass, and the Elga mine. The port is linked by rail to the Trans-Siberian Railroad, north-eastern China and North Korea.[1]
