thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions has supplied a new coal handling system to the State Transport

Leasing Company (STLC) in Russia. The system will be the centrepiece of a new terminal for

coal exports in the port of Lavna near Murmansk, on the western shore of Kola Bay. With a

planned capacity of 18 million tons of coal per year the terminal will significantly increase the

coal handling capacities of the region. It is expected to be fully operational in 2021.

Torsten Gerlach, CEO of the Mining Technologies business unit at thyssenkrupp Industrial

Solutions: “Together with our partner LNK Industries, we will equip one of the largest ports

in Russia with a state-of-the-art port handling facility. We are pleased to contribute our

extensive experience in the planning of such systems. As one of the few full-range suppliers,

we can provide our customers with fully integrated solutions that ensure high performance

and resource-efficient operation.”

The terminal project will be completed in two phases: First out-shipments are expected to

take place in 2020. In that same year a total of nine million tons of coal will be handled on

site. In 2021, the volume increases to 18 million tons. The project will augment regional coal

exports and release pressure on existing terminals in the Baltic Sea. It is closely connected

with the development of the Murmansk Transport Hub, one of the biggest ongoing

infrastructure projects in the Russian north.

thyssenkrupp will supply two ship loaders, stackers, reclaimers and car dumpers as well as

one combined stacker-reclaimer, several belt conveyors and auxiliary equipment. The

contract includes engineering and procurement, as well as services for site erection and

commissioning. Within the project, thyssenkrupp's partner, the Latvian construction

company LNK Industries, is responsible for the design and construction of the conveyor

system. In order to keep dust emissions from the handling site at a minimum, all coal transfer

points, wagon unloading stations as well as ship loaders will be outfitted with dust

suppression equipment.

The Industrial Solutions business area of thyssenkrupp is a leading partner for the engineering,

construction and service of industrial plants and systems.
