Lyttleton Port to resume coal exports

Lyttleton Port announced today that coal exports have resumed.

The exports were delayed due to damage to port infrastructure and equipment in the latest earthquakes on June 13.

The coal load-out system underwent initial testing over the weekend and now loading is underway.

The load-out system will continue to be tested and monitored, and repairs to Cashin Quay are expected to continue for some time, the company said in the announcement to the NZX today.

"Our priority is to get coal exports back to normal."

The Port says on its website that it exports 2.2 million tonnes of coal worldwide annually.

Shares were trading at $2.33.
