Mined in the western province of Tete by Vale, the coal is destined for Asian markets. The new terminal possesses state of the art loading equipment and can handle 6 million mt of coal a year, essentially the same capacity as the Sena railway line that runs from the Moatize coal basin in Tete to Beira. The Beira coal terminal is considered provisional and the Mozambican port and rail company, CFM, is looking for partners to help build a much larger coal terminal with the capacity to handle 20 million mtpy.
