China Railway Harbin Bureau Group has speeded up coal transport to meet the rising energy demand, as winter heating season began in the northernmost province.
In October, the company loads 4,170 coal cars per day, or 12.3 percent more than a year earlier.
Thermal power still takes up a large share of China's energy output, accounting for about 70 percent of its power generation. The heating season has added pressure to the power supply in north China.
The country is making all-out efforts to ensure power supply after power outages halted factory production and hit families in some regions.
