In the Primorsky Territory, Vostochny Port JSC celebrated its 47th year of operation in the industry. The company operates in the field of high-tech coal transshipment in Wrangel Bay, the deepest port in the region. 

According to the press service of Vostochny Port JSC, the history of the port began in 1970, when the leadership of the USSR made a decision to build a “sea gate” in the south of the Far East for trade with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region (APR). The order to create the port was issued on February 28, 1974 - from that day on, the port in Wrangel Bay was entered on all sailing directions and marked on the navigable maps of the world. 

For almost half a century, there was an all-Union shock construction in the port, then the port became the largest stevedore in the country. Now the turnover of goods is about 15% of all sea coal exports of the country.

At the same time, the company monitors the environment through high-tech and safe handling of coal. According to the port's own comprehensive environmental program, the best technologies are used in the area where coal is being transshipped to minimize the contact between cargo and the environment. These are the closed buildings of car dumpers and transfer stations, covered conveyor equipment, dry fog, dust suppression, irrigation systems for sorting, transporting and storing coal, unloading coal into the holds of ships, protection from the wind.

The main consignees are the Asia-Pacific countries and India. The volumes in these directions are growing every year: despite the pandemic, even in 2020, the transshipment volumes exceeded the indicators of the previous year by 1,34 million tons and amounted to 26,85 million tons of coal. This was achieved thanks to the port's investment programs. In particular, we completed the third stage of the specialized coal complex and the fleet for receiving laden trains "Novy" as part of the Nakhodka-Vostochnaya station of the Far Eastern Railway.

At the same time, the company takes care of employees from the very beginning of the port's work. In addition to work safety, comfortable working conditions have been created here. And this, according to the managing director of the stevedoring company Vadim Baibak, is as important as the introduction of new technologies in production.
