Knoxville-based coal company Xinergy announced Tuesday it this week shipped the first train-load of coal from its recently completed load out facility at its South Fork mine in Greenbrier County, W. Va.
The $20 million coal prep and load out facility is key element in the Central Appalachian coal producer’s strategy for increasing production.
“We are extremely satisfied and proud today as we watched our vision to become a significant player in the metallurgical coal market come full circle from the concept stage to design, construction and now to the ultimate fulfillment of our first order. After approximately six months, we completed this project at our flagship mine on-time and on budget. Our first shipment this week was a monumental event for this Company. The efficiency of execution was exactly what we had planned for,” Xinergy President Bernie Mason said in a news release.
Xinergy operates mines in West Virginia and Virginia and sells coal to electric utilities, steelmakers, energy trading firms and industrial companies.
