The location of Karbindo coal mine site is called TIANG SATU. Tiang Satu is located 175 kilometres by existing road, east of the coastal city of Padang, with its service port of Teluk Bayur.

PT KA will also revive the upgrading of a 155 KM railway line to Teluk Bayur port, which will compliment the existing coal transportation by truck.

Ship loading is being done at Teluk Bayur Port, at the west of Sumatera Island which the vessel or barge could go straight to India or Pakistan since the port is facing Indian ocean.

The coal transported to Teluk Bayur would be stocked up at our 17.000 m2 stockpile which could stock up to 80.000 MT coal before each shipment.

The maximum draft of the port is 9.8 m (high tide)

Where maximum cargo could be loaded is 40.000 MT

The coal can be loaded to the vessel at any one of the seven available wharfs by using geared vessel (crane and grab), by using conveyor belt owned by PTBA, or by using barge transshipment at the anchorage at the 8000 MT per day loading rate.

Ship Loading at Teluk Bayur port

Based on the history, the fastest time to finish loading around 38.500 MT to the handymax sized vessel was approximately 35 hours only by using geared (crane and grabs) vessel at the wharf, but since Teluk Bayur Port is a public port, where the passenger ship, container, cargo, and vessel are using this port everyday, we can guarantee 8000 MT per day loading rate due to the queue of the ship.
