SDS-Ugol reached an agreement with local authorities in Murmansk to start construction of a new port for coal.
According to barentsobserver.com, a new coal harbor on the western side of the Kola bay has been on the drawing table for many years.
This project is scheduled to begin next year.
Murmansk already has one huge coal export harbor located near the city center causing dust and noise. A new harbor on the other side of the bay will come in an uninhabited area.
