Two more coal ports for Primorye

Dalian: Russia will start building a new coal terminal with the help of Chinese finance in Severniy port in the Far Eastern Primorye region. The $340m terminal, with four berths and 900 m of quayside, will have an annual capacity of 20m tons a year. It is expected to be completed in three years time.

The construction of another major coal port, costing some $265m, is about to start in the Bay of Suhodol in Primorye.

Much of the coal output from both these ports will head to China.
