In addition, the company will extend a long-term facility of $165m to the NLC, which will transport coal from Moatize to port.

Upon completion of the transaction with Mitsui, Vale hopes to receive $768m and up to $2.7bn upon closing the project financing.

Moatize is expected to pay logistics service tariffs to the NLC to support repayment of the $2.7bn project finance package.

The agreement will reinforce Vale and Mitsui’s focus on completing the project financing for the NLC.
