Coal Transshipment: Environmental Issues in the Far East
The Best Available Technique guidance does not contain the term ‘closed transshipment’, nor are there events that would require construction of hangars that big. We think that this is most probably true. It is important for people to realize that building a huge hangar is not an efficient and effective measure. <…> I have not come across any stevedores transshiping millions of tonnes of coal so far that would have these large closed hangars. I think, it means that they must have thought it through and concluded that it was not a cure-all solution

If we take average morbidity level in the region, especially respiratory diseases, Nakhodka has always shown a lower one. We are getting fewer complaints from locals. <…> This means that the President’s instruction on improving the environmental situation in Nakhodka is being purposefully and gradually executed. That is why we must keep on to reach the results, to fulfil the task of the President’s instruction: to create good conditions for the population

Coal Transshipment: Environmental Issues in the Far East
Stevedores have signed high-level agreements with the Administration of Primorye Territory, corresponding ministries, Rospotrebnadzor, the Ministry of Transport and Rosmorport that provided for a number of measures to improve the environmental situation. The budget for all stevedores’ environmental measures in Nakhodka is about 10 billion roubles – it is a significant amount. <…> All stevedores actually implement these measures – it is not a formality. <…> Key measures include irrigation, installing wind screens that reduce kinetic energy in the wind, using substances that facilitate dust consolidation, as well as improving culture of port workers – they all help us minimize coal dust related risks
