Background

In February 2015 the Russian government said it was planning a 20 million tonne per annum (mtpa) coal facility to be called the Sever terminal at Cape Petrovsky, near the existing port of Vostochny in Nakhodka. Construction is planned to begin in the spring of 2015. The terminal is aimed at increasing coal supplies to the Asia-Pacific region.[1]

The terminal is estimated at $US340 million, which will be provided by the federal budget and a further US$190 million by private investors, including Russian engineering group Summa and the China Development Bank. The terminal will also involve the building of over 50 kilometers of railroad track, 11 bridges and overpasses, and four berths with a length of over 900 meters. Throughput would begin in 2018, starting at approximately 6 mtpa and reaching the full 20 mtpa capacity by 2025.[1]

The Sever coal terminal is the second planned for the region, with construction already underway on an 18Mta coal port at Sukhodol Bay, which would also ship coal to the Asia-Pacific region.[1]
