Shaanxi Coal and Chemical reports increase of rail coal sales to 3 provinces Company,  Production & Sales 2020-08-07 13:27:24

Shaanxi Coal and Chemical Industry Group, a major state-owned energy firm in northwestern China, reported rising coal sales to Hunan, Hubei and Jiangxi provinces located on and to the south of the coal base.

Shaanxi Coal Selling and Transportation, a fully-owned subsidiary of the coal major and mainly engaged in coal marketing, saw its rail coal sales via Haoji railway continue increasing, and its sales to Jiangxi exceeded 1 million tonnes in July alone.

Power consumption surged in the areas, with the plum rain season coming to an end and hot temperature increasingly scorching the three provinces, which also pulled up coal demand.

The efficient transportation via Haoji railway was also a reason behind. It only takes about three days to deliver coal produced in northern Shaanxi to Jingzhou port in Hubei and Yueyang port in Hunan, which compares with about over half of a month basing on the conventional routine of production base-northern port-destination.

The railway ends in Jiangxi, and passes through Hubei and Hunan.

Apart from Jiangxi, coal sales to its key power utility customer in Guizhou reached over 1 million tonnes so far in the year, completing its 2020 target ahead of schedule.
