Engineering News 7 March 2013.

State-owned freight logistics group Transnet is working on two major expansion projects at the Port of Richards Bay, in KwaZulu-Natal, which could together result in investments of more than R30-billion between 2015 and 2020, including the development of a possible new open-access coal terminal…

(Comment: One the one hand we have Eskom saying that coal should be declared a strategic resource and that exports should be limited to ensure availability to Eskom and to keep the prices down and on the other hand we have Transnet (and the NDP?) wanting to increase exports. This is why we need an Integrated Energy Plan (IEP) urgently so that policies are integrated and coordinated.)
