Background

The Daltransugol coal terminal began operating in 2008 and is operated by SUEK. It originally had capacity to handle 12 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).[1] In 2017, SUEK completed the development of the external railway infrastructure at the Daltransugol coal terminal, which increased annual transshipment capacity to 24 mtpa.[2] In August 2021, the port shipped its 200 millionth ton of coal.[3]

In September 2020, the Daltransugol coal terminal received regulatory approval to expand its capacity to 40 mtpa. The expansion was planned to be complete by 2024.[4] Work on the 40 mtpa expansion began in August 2021.[3]

The Daltransugol coal terminal handled 23.2 million tonnes of coal in 2020, up from 20.5 million tonnes handled in 2019.[5] Coal from the Daltransugol coal terminal is shipped to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.[6] Most of the coal shipped through the terminal is mined by SUEK, but the terminal also provides shipping services for Elgaugol, Kuzbassrazrezugol and the Kuzbass Fuel Company.[7]

In October 2021, transshipment at the Daltransugol coal terminal ground to a halt due to a fire in the coal storage area.[7] Operations at the terminal resumed about two weeks later.[8]
