“With the additional coal shipping railway infrastructure and coal collection port, we are optimistic we will become the biggest national player,” Sutrisno said during the signing of cooperation to develop a 270-km long coal shipping railway from Tanjung Enim to Tanjung Api-Api. Sukrisno said the company’s present capacity is around 12 million mtpy, but is expected to reach 15 million mtpy. The coal railway line is expected to help Bukit Asam boost production. The $1.6 billion project is expected to operate in 2014 with a load capacity of 35 million mtpy.
