According to Arro, restarting the terminal is complicated as renewable energy is becoming more and more popular in Estonia and elsewhere and therefore the importance of the coal terminal for the port will decline in the long run.


"At the same time it is one of the most modern terminals on the shores of the Baltic Sea. But it is still early to speak about concrete results and a possible restarting," she added.
