Russia's largest specialized coal transshipment terminal, Vostochny Port JSC, continues to implement a large-scale comprehensive environmental program. At the current stage, four modern dust collection systems have been installed at key areas of closed transportation - nodal transfer stations. Investments in equipment developed using the best world and domestic technologies amounted to 200 million rubles.

Nodal transfer stations are structures completely isolated from the external environment and are designed to redirect the movement of coal along closed conveyor lines from warehouses to ship-loading machines. In the spring of 2020, two dust collectors with a total capacity of about 100 thousand cubic meters per hour were launched at the transfer stations. At the second stage of the program, in September 2020, the port workers installed two more aspiration units with a total capacity of over 105 thousand cubic meters per hour. Thus, taking into account the already functioning systems, the new aspiration units carry out high-quality air purification inside all 15 transfer stations operating on the territory of a specialized coal terminal.

Thanks to the use of the latest filtering elements in the new equipment, the specialized terminal has increased the degree of air purification to 98%. This is confirmed by control measurements at the outlet of the aspiration units, carried out by the specialists of the ecology department of Vostochny Port JSC using high-precision measuring instruments.

A large-scale modernization of air purification equipment was carried out as part of the implementation of Vostochny Port JSC's own comprehensive environmental program, the main goal of which is to minimize the impact of the production process on the environment. Aspiration systems are an integral part of the complex of the best available technologies of Vostochny Port JSC, required for the closed type of coal transshipment, the need for which for stevedoring companies is indicated in the instruction of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Aspiration equipment, along with water irrigation systems, snow generators and "dry fog" forms an active protection of the production and handling complex of JSC "Vostochny Port". The passive environmental protection applied at the enterprise since the first years of its foundation is provided by closed car dumpers, conveyor lines, transfer stations, wind barriers and treatment facilities. Thanks to the complex of the best available technologies, Vostochny Port JSC achieves high-tech and environmentally friendly coal transshipment.
