Carbo One Limited, one of the largest coal trading companies in the world, held a meeting with the management of OBA Bulk Terminal (Amsterdam) at C1 headquarters in Cyprus (Limassol).
Carbo One and OBA Bulk Terminal have a long and successful history of fruitful partnership since 2003. About 25 million tons of Carbo One’s coal were handled at the terminal over almost 16 years of intensive cooperation. Currently, OBA Terminal provides high-tech handling of Carbo One’s metallurgical material and anthracite under long-term contracts to such global steelmaking giants as ThyssenKrupp and Dillinger, as well as handles thermal coal for delivery to power plants in Western Europe.
During the meeting, the companies summarized the current issues of joint work in 2019, as well as outlined plans for further cooperation in 2020-2021. The companies paid special attention to the technological improvement of anthracite handling, using new highly advanced coal screening equipment, which provides simultaneous separation of coal into 3 fractions (0-1 mm, 1-13 mm, 13+ mm) to meet the requirements of Carbo One customers. Besides indoor warehouses for storing anthracite have been commissioned in June 2019 at the terminal to prevent infiltration of moisture and enhance value of Carbo One’s material.
