In the first quarter of 2016 Multipurpose Reloading Complex (MRC) in the port of Ust-Luga (Leningrad region) handled 986 thousand tonnes of power plant coal – 4% less than for the same period of the last year. This is caused by the unfavourable situation in the external markets, which entails lower export volumes. However, this figure is 14.2% higher than planned value.
The average unloading rate at the terminal is 153 semi-wagons, the maximum rate is 299 semi-wagons a day. In total, MRC handled 13 953 semi-wagons and 21 transporting vessels.
