Key Benefits

Javelin is now one of the largest bulk commodity traders globally.

Javelin has extensive relationships with global producers, utilities, Independent Power Plants (IPPs) and other industrial consumers and logistic providers (e.g. rail, port, barge, truck, ocean freight) globally. As such, we have an extensive global system that can help our clients monetise our relationships, economies of scale and flexibility.

Javelin, through its risk management systems and extensive access to financial markets, is able to warehouse and hedge significant risk and therefore, provide short and long term flexible volume and price contracts for coal purchase and sale. To reinforce these flows, Javelin also commits to multi-year rail, barge, port and ocean freight agreements.

Thermal Coal Services

Javelin enters into short and long-term offtake agreements with producers, giving them access to Javelin’s network of global customers, logistics, capital and financial relationships. We can provide offtake agreements with flexible deliveries and quality pricing structures tailored to the supplier’s needs. Javelin accepts delivery ex-mine, ex-port or free on-board vessel.

Javelin enters into short and long-term fuel supply agreements with utilities and IPPs, where we can provide flexibility on volumes, qualities and price to meet our customer’s objective. We can tailor the price of coal to the client’s needs through fixed price, coal indexed priced or power price indexed structures to help manage operating margins.

Javelin provides delivered station gate fuel contracts, managing all aspects of the physical delivery including rail, barge, truck or ocean freight logistics as well as the delivery of pre-blended products from multiple supply sources at ports globally. Javelin’s extensive and global relationships with logistic providers allows our customers to benefit from robust delivery performance, known cost and flexibility in supply.

Javelin provides coal combustion services to utilities, IPPs and industrial users globally. We identify the lowest all in cost of coal (or blend of coals) to help minimize the variable cost of generation and maximize dispatch. Subsequently, we work alongside our clients’ fuel procurement team to support their analysis of coals and help them during the trialling process.

Javelin also supports producers when bringing new coal products to market by introducing their coal to the right clients and supporting them in their marketing efforts. Javelin’s technical team works with the producer’s clients to trial the coal in order for it to be accepted as an approved source.

Javelin has extensive experience in helping developers design the technical coal specifications for power plants. This process ensures they are designed to comply with all regulatory requirements and provides for the lowest variable cost of coal (or blend of coals) as well as diversity and security of supply sources.

Moreover, Javelin can work with developers, utilities and local authorities to design power purchase agreements to ensure mutually beneficial fuel price mechanics. Ideally, the fuel price mechanics can be hedged so that both developer and utility can manage their commodity risk exposures.

Javelin invests and provides working capital to support our customer activities. This can be as simple as providing customers with prepayments, delayed payment terms or inventory and accounts receivable financing or more complex such as debt and equity financings. Javelin can also invest directly into the logistics chain to open up new delivery solutions.
