The Yenisey Seaport coal terminal is being developed by Severnaya Zvezda, a subsidiary of AEON Corporation, as part of its plans to develop the Syradasaysky Coal Mine.[1] The company received environmental approval for the project in 2020.[2]

The proposed coal terminal is located near the village of Dikson in the Taimyr Dolgano-Nenets district of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. It is at the mouth of the Yenisei Gulf on the coast of the Kara Sea and is the northernmost port in Russia.[3]

In summer of 2021, Severnaya Zvezda began preparatory construction work on the coal terminal project, including a 60km road to connect the terminal to the Syradasayskoye coal field, as well as a 1.5 km dam to connect the coastal zone to the cargo berth. As of 2021, the terminal's construction was expected to commence in 2022, reaching 7 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of capacity by 2026.[4][5] With the second phase of the terminal, capacity would increase up to 15 mtpa.[6]

However it appears that capacity plans were later revised in line with the mine's expansion plan. 2023 sources referred to capacity of the 1st phase of the project of 5 mtpa.[7][8]

In April 2023, the Glavgosexpertiza of Russia reported that it had issued a positive conclusion on the creation of a water area for receiving and servicing cargo ships and icebreakers in Taimyr.[3] As per media reports in April 2023, construction was in active phase and the company planned to be able to ship about 1 million tonnes of coal by the end of the year.[7]

As of September 2023, the first phase of the project was in active construction, with planned completion in 2024.[3]
