The Services We Deliver

HVCCC is the only organisation taking in an end-to-end Hunter Valley Coal Chain view and working independently of individual interests to optimise the performance of the entire network.

With services spanning from ‘day of operations’ to 10 years, HVCCC aligns coal chain capacity with demand, integrating maintenance and operation to synchronise the flow of coal from load points to power stations and vessels through a vast network of interdependent infrastructure. HVCCC planning and scheduling routinely delivers productivity and efficiency that is aspirational for other coal chains, as well as accurate forecasting and modelling, and insightful analysis.

Although executing the perfect plan is ideal, disruptions from weather, unplanned maintenance and schedule slippage are inevitable across such a vast network. Amid these challenges, Members depend on HVCCC to maximise throughput for peaks lasting weeks or months and, at all times, to optimise the efficient interaction of coal chain assets to serve collective needs, mitigating the increasing complexity of demand being met from more distant load points.
