DTEK energy holding since early October has increased coal stocks at warehouses of thermal power plants (TPPs) by 173,000 tons, to 792,000 tons, DTEK Energo Generation Director Serhiy Kurylenko reported.
Kurylenko said that at present DTEK’s TPPs burned 50,000 tons of coal a day on average. Around 65,000 tons of coal arrive every day to their warehouses.
He said that taking into account the delivery pace, as of November 1, the company would form stocks at its warehouses that would meet the plans of Ukraine’s Energy and Coal Industry Ministry.
DTEK anticipates that coalmines of the holding would increase coal production by 3.5 million tons in H2 2016 meeting the needs of power and heat generating companies. (Interfax/Business World Magazine)
