Another Panamax with 45 thousand tons of Colombian coal has moored at the port of TIS and will replenish the warehouses of thermal power plants (TPPs) of DTEK Energy in the coming days.
“Over the past five months, the company has imported about 1.2 million tons of fuel. Imported coal, in addition to our own production, allows our thermal power plants to operate at maximum load during peak periods of electricity consumption. In particular, thanks to him, the coal reserves in the warehouses of DTEK Energy's thermal power plants almost doubled - from 275 thousand tons as of December 31 last year to 517 thousand tons, as of February 7,” said Ildar Saleev, CEO of DTEK Energy.
To date, DTEK has contracted ship deliveries with a total volume of 858,000 tons. The first ship contracted by the company for the needs of the state-owned TPP "Centrenergo" arrived in Ukraine on November 20 last year. Nine Panamaxes, for the needs of DTEK Energy's thermal power plants, arrived during December-February. Additional ships are expected to arrive this month and next. All of them are designed for the needs of Ukrainian thermal power plants.
To date, the company has contracted about 1.7 million tons of coal, incl. from the USA, Colombia, Poland, Kazakhstan (in previous periods).
