    Global Ports' ULCT starts handling of export coal

    Global Ports Investments PLC (Global Ports) in line with the Group’s programme of terminal infrastructure efficiency and generation of additional revenue, begins handling of export coal at its Ust-Luga Container Terminal (ULCT), the Global Ports said Thursday in a press release.

    The first cargo of metallurgical coal was shipped on December 26, 2017 from the ULCT coal handling yard, which has developed railway infrastructure and facilities to ensure the shipment of up to 1 million tonnes of coal a year.

    Global Ports says that “attracting a new type of cargo will not affect anyhow the capability of ULCT to handle its primary cargo. The container terminal will still be able to handle annually 440 000 TEUs.”

    Global Ports has developed a detailed management plan for risk assessment that arises from the coal cargo operations. The Group has invested heavily in the project.

    The project includes among others the environmental sustainability measures to reduce coal dust emission on site into the air and water area, and to avoid impact on container handling operations. The terminal operator will install dust shields around the coal handling yard, air and water monitoring systems, and dust suppression equipment.
