Tyva Republic advances coal line plan


The Tyva Republic’s government and Eniseiskaya Industrial Corp. (EPK) recently signed a protocol confirming the Kyzyl-Kuragino coal route in Russia. The parties now will carry out engineering work in the territory for the rail line.

Under a public-private partnership, EPK will invest in the project, which the Russia Federation government has identified as a transportation infrastructure development priority. EPK has a license to exploit a large coal field in the central part of Tyva Republic, which is part of the federation and formerly known as the Tuvan People’s Republic. The new line is expected to be used to haul about 30 million tons of coal annually, in addition to other freight.

The project’s chief designer, Northern-West Designing Institute of Transport Objects, has identified the line’s route, which will run 285 miles from Kyzyl, the Tyva Republic’s capital, to Kuragino station located in the Krasnoyarsk territory.
