Shenshuo rail line, which starts from Daliuta in Shaanxi province and ends in Shuozhou in neighboring Shanxi province, hauled 225.08 million tonnes of coal as of December 2, exceeding its target of 224.35 million tonnes for 2016, said operator China Shenhua Group on December 5.
This is the fifth consecutive year for its coal transport to stay above 200 million tonnes, after reaching 207 million tonnes in 2012.
Since 2016, the rail line has reduceed coal transport time between Daliuta and Shuozhou from 0.83 day to 0.78 day, releasing tight transport capacity.
The 266-km line, the second largest coal dedicated railway after Daqin line transporting coal from western production areas to eastern consumption areas, mainly delivers coal from Shenfu and Dongsheng coal fields owned by Shenhua Group.
