Coal Export Port - Russia Bedeschi to equip Russian Coal Export Terminal
Bedeschi Handling, part of Italy’s Bedeschi Group, has signed a contract to provide port-related equipment for a new coal export terminal in Russia’s Far East. The deepwater coal handling facility will form an integral part of a USD 6.7 billion project to enhance the capacity of the Elegest coal mines located in the centre of the Tuva Republic near Kyzyl.
The project, being undertaken by Russian firm Tuva Energy Industrial Corporation, includes the construction of a 400 km railroad connecting the mine to the region’s main commercial hubs and the new port terminal in Vanino. Bedeschi will supply the new port with a double tippler station, capable of rotating four 100 t wagons with a total capacity of around 6000 t/h, stackers, reclaimers and shiploaders, 7.5 km of belt conveyors, and more.
