The port receives coal from Indonesia and Australia, purchased by Joban Kyodo Electric Power (owned by Tokyo Electric and Tohoku Electric Power Co) for its Nakoso thermal plant in Fukushima prefecture.[1]

Kansai Electric Power has proposed a 112 MW coal-fired power station near Sendai port, the Kansai Sendai power station, with a planned operation date of 2017.[2][3]

On the 10th of April 2018, Shikoku Electric Power Co., Inc. announces withdrawal from Sendai Takamatsu. In June, Sumitomo Corporation announces that the (tentative name) Sendai Takamatsu power plant switched coal-biomass mix-fuel to biomass burning.[4]
