In the center of La Guajira is the heart of our operations. We carry out the exploration and exploitation of Colombian coal following the highest operational and environmental standards. Once the mining process is finished, the land rehabilitation it begins in the intervened areas.

At the mine, we also have the largest mining equipment maintenance workshop in the industry, where we can perform checks and maintenance on our equipment. Likewise, our operation integrates the coal crushing and washing plants and silos. We have a specialized laboratory that allows us to exercise operational control over the quality of the coal transported by our trains and ensure compliance with the requirements of our customers.

Through an automatic loading and unloading system, the train connects the mining operation with Puerto Bolívar on a journey of approximately four hours. It is the only railway operation globally that has an escort system to prevent accidents on the railway line.

Puerto Bolívar

Cerrejón's port operation in Alta Guajira, located next to the Bahía Portete Nature Park, proves that it is possible to mine while still respecting the environment. Ships worldwide arrive at the port, where they are loaded to distribute our product to our international clients.
