Mitsui Miike Machinery Co., Ltd.
Marubeni Corporation (“Marubeni”) and Mitsui Miike Machinery Co., Ltd. (“Mitsui Miike”) have concluded an agreement for the supply of coal handling facility with JSC Vostochny Port, a leading port stevedoring company in Russia.
JSC Vostochny Port has a coal handling terminal with an annual capacity of 18 million tons, and exports coal to East Asian countries, including Japan. Port Vostochny was constructed as a Japan-USSR Economic Cooperation Project in the 1970s, and the coal handling equipment, which was supplied by Mitsui Miike, remains in operation today. This new project will be constructed next to the existing terminal and of the same scale in response to increased exports of Russian coal.
Japan is purchasing coal from JSC Vostochny Port, and this project will contribute to the country’s stable energy supply as well as strengthen bilateral relations. Going forward, Marubeni will actively pursue business participation in new coal handling complex projects in the Russian Far East.
