Case Study: Coal Terminal Capacity Upgrade

forex kostnad växla PPM has provided ongoing support to a major client’s coal terminal capacity upgrade.  Coal suppliers have forecast continued growth in coal exports through this terminal.  With the current infrastructure now approaching 30 years old, our client sought to define a cost-effective upgrade path which would provide an increase to terminal capacity within an acceptable timeframe.  The client also sought to refurbish or replace key operating plant in parallel to the upgrade, without limiting terminal capacity during implementation.
