Overview

All of TECO Coal’s mines ship coal via the Norfolk Southern and/or CSXT railroad system lines to the piers of Norfolk and Newport News for export to Europe and the Pacific Rim. TECO Coal also rail-ships to major cities along the Eastern Seaboard.

From TECO Energy’s privately owned TECO Bulk Terminal at the Port of New Orleans, TECO Coal and other TECO Energy affiliates ship to Europe, South America and Asia, as well as the Southern ports of the United States.

Delivery
All of TECO Coal’s products are delivered domestically when you need them via Norfolk Southern and/or CSXT railroads systems and OTR trucking contractors. Internationally, TECO Coal’s customers also receive coal through a sister company, TECO Bulk Terminal in Davant, LA. via TECO Energy ocean barge affiliates.

Production
Production at TECO Coal subsidiaries is viewed with an eye toward safeguarding the environment and returning the land to productive use after the mining is completed. Methods of extraction include surface methods where multiple seams are mined as well as deep mining methods in select seams. Collectively, TECO Coal’s operations have the capacity to produce, process and ship a minimum of 9.5 million tons of high-quality coal each year.

TECO Coal’s principal products include world class high volatile metallurgical, ultra low ash, and low sulfur coals (-1.5% ash) used in the production of silicon metal, high quality steam coal for utilities, specialty stoker products for ferro-silicon and industrial uses, and PCI coals for steel mills as well as other metallurgical products. Specialized sizing of products is available at all subsidiary locations.
