Processing Facility, Belfast

At our Belfast processing plant we have been processing coal for in excess of 30 years. We source premium coal from a number of established mines throughout the world. We charter our own ships and import the coal mainly to Belfast port where we process the coal.

The imported coal is washed and screened to purify it and grade it according to size. The segregated coal is stockpiled by product and sizing before onward distribution to our prepacking facilities or direct to other coal distributors. All inward and outward coal products in our yard are weighed using a modern calibrated weighbridge.

Prepacking Plants

We have automated prepacking plants situated at both our sites in Dungannon and Belfast where we have combined capacity to store in excess of 15,000 tonnes of prepacked coal ready for distribution. We stock both bituminous coal and smokeless fuels in bag sizes ranging from 10 – 50kg. This gives us the capability to provide our customers with a superb service and ensure they get product when they need it.
