Jingzhou coal storage and distribution base to go into trial operation next month
Updated: 2020-11-11 17:09:39

Located at the intersection of Jiangling and the Yangtze River Golden Waterway, Haolebaoji-Ji'an Railway that was opened to traffic last September is a strategic channel in China's north-to-south coal transport project. Based on its superior location, Hubei established Jingzhou Coal Storage and Distribution Base there to create the largest rail-water combined coal transport project in Central China. The tail-in work of Phase I of the project is under way and scheduled to go into trial operation next month.

Jingzhou Coal Storage and Distribution Base, with a total investment of 7 billion yuan, is constructed in two phases. With an investment of about 3.8 billion yuan, Phase I consists of a port, a backup yard, a rail line connected to Haolebaoji-Ji'an Railway and other facilities. In the port operation area, a terminal platform with two berths and a totally-enclosed coal transport corridor have been set up, with electromechanical equipment installation and commissioning under way these days.

Hubei's annual coal demand is around 100 million tons and nearly 90 percent of them is from other provinces. Hubei used to purchase coal from northern coal-producing provinces by sea, which is time-consuming. In winter-the peak season of coal consumption and the dry season of the Yangtze River, coal had to be transported by ships and boats to the middle reaches of the river.

To strictly implement the requirements for the great protection of the Yangtze River, the main works and environment facilities were designed and constructed synchronously, and a total of over 200 million yuan was invested in environmental facilities. 

In the backup yard about the size of over 80 standard football fields, the main works have been completed. To avoid coal dust pollution, workers were installing wind & dust nets.

With the settlement of major strategic projects, Jiangling County has conducted early planning and deployment by establishing Jingzhou Jiangling Green Agrochemical Industry Park around Jingzhou Coal Storage and Distribution Base. There are currently 6 key and signed projects in the park, with a total investment of 105.1 billion yuan.
