Our Business Model

We deliver long-term value to shareholders at every stage of our value chain — from coal deposit development, mining and processing to transportation and marketing, as well as power generation. Our integrated business model allows us to benefit from economies of scale and maintain our status as Russia’s leading coal producer.


Our strong reserve base ensures quality coal production for over 30 years. We research new mining and processing technologies as well as new products to deliver maximum value from our operations.


Our mining activities deliver a sustainable supply of high-quality thermal coal. Our efficient operations enable us to maintain a leading position in the industry and pursue ambitious growth targets. To achieve these, we invest heavily in modern equipment and continually upgrade our production units.

Washing and processing

Coal washing reduces ash and moisture, improving our coal’s calorific value and decreasing its environmental footprint. We have responded to increasing global demand for higher-quality coal by building new washing and processing facilities and by improving the operating efficiency of existing plants.

The favourable locations of our coal assets, allowing easy access to key transport infrastructure and port facilities, enables us to cost-effectively supply the major markets of Russia, Atlantic and Asia-Pacific. Our higher-capacity railcars deliver coal to our customers in Russia, as well our own ports in the West and East of Russia, where we can make timely and lower-cost shipments to our international customers.
