Shipyard River Coal Terminal
Shipyard River Terminal is a multi-purpose facility located on the Cooper River in Charleston, South Carolina. The facility handles coal, petroleum coke, cement, oils, and various other liquids and materials.
The Shipyard River Terminal at the Port of Charleston has been a coal import terminal; the terminal operator is now considering the addition of coal export capability at its existing bulk handling facility.
Shipyard River Terminal previously exported coal but the equipment was removed shortly after Kinder Morgan bought the terminal in 1998 from Zeigler Coal Holding Co. for US$35 million. Kinder would like to spend US$200 million to boost capacity at the terminal to 8 million tonnes a year from 2.5 million, but was waiting for a dedicated buyer.
As of March 2018 the capacity at the terminal is still reported to be 2.5 mtpa.
