PJSC Centrenergo will be transferred to gas coal in 2019, Energy and Coal Industry Minister Ihor Nasalyk has said.
“PJSC Centrenergo consumed 2.2 million tons of anthracite in 2016, 800 thousand tons in 2017, and 400 thousand tons in 2018. The balance forecast and fuel structure for 2019 envisage no anthracite consumption at all,” Nasalyk said at Government Question Hour meeting.
