Dedicated port for Inner Mongolia coal

Dedicated port for Inner Mongolia coal

Dalian: The landlocked coal-rich Inner Mongolia in north China will soon have an open access to ship its coal from a port in its neighbouring province to fuel-thirsty customers in eastern and southern regions, Xinhua reported.
A port terminal to be built in Huludao, Liaoning Province, will support an annual throughput of 50 million tonnes of coal when the first phase of the project becomes operational by 2012, Zhao Rongqing, the chief of port affairs in Huludao City, said on Wednesday.
The annual throughput would be eventually expanded to 230 million tonnes, Zhao said.
He said a 300-km railway will be built to link the port directly with Xilingol, a major coal production base in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.  [18/03/10]
