New monthly coal transport record for Rio Tinto Coal in Mozambique

14 November 2013

Rio Tinto Coal Moçambique (RTCM) achieved last October a new monthly record for outflow of coal to the port of Beira, with 95,000 tons transported by the Sena railway line, the company’s coal chain director announced.

A statement released by Carlos Galego specified that 38 trains were used to transport the coal tonnage sent to the Sofala province capital’s port.

The new record was made possible by “ongoing improvements in the Sena Line” and the consequent increase in RTCM’s rolling stock, Galego said.

The Rio Tinto group is based in the United Kingdom and comprises Rio Tinto plc, traded on the London and New York stock exchanges, and Rio Tinto Limited, traded on the Australian Securities Exchange.

The group is active around the world, especially in Australia and North America, and also has significant mining business in Asia, Europe, Africa and South America. (macauhub)
