DTEK imports another 600 thousand tons of coal
DTEK has contracted 600 thousand tons of coal for the first quarter of 2022. Coal will arrive from the USA, Poland and Colombia.
This was announced by the Director General of the company Maksym Timchenko at a press conference in Kyiv on Tuesday, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
“In 2021, we imported 2.5 million tons of coal. In the first quarter of next year, we have already contracted 600 thousand tons of coal: supplies from Poland and supplies by sea. We have a problem with the supply of anthracite,” Timchenko said.
Timchenko also expressed the hope that at the state level it will be possible to unblock the issue of importing anthracite from the Russian Federation, noting that the reserves existing at the Lugansk TPP will be enough til December 10th-15th.
The Head of DTEK said that suplies from Poland under the contract by the end of the first quarter of 2022 are expected at 80 thousand tons per month.
In addition, it is planned to supply 400 thousand tons from the USA and Colombia in the fourth quarter of this year and 380-400 thousand tons in the first quarter of 2022. Contract prices are tied to APІ2 plus shipping and range from $160 to $250 per ton.
As USM reported earlier, DTEK and the international company HC Trading have agreed on an additional shipload of 60,000 tonnes of American coal. The shipment is expected to arrive in Ukraine in mid-November.
Also earlier, the company agreed to supply 225 thousand tons of coal from the United States. In particular, the international company HC Trading (Heidelberg Cement Group) agreed to supply two shiploads of American thermal coal to Ukraine. The volume of agreements with the supplier amounted to 150 thousand tons.
As USM previously reported, Russia announced that it had stopped deliveries of thermal coal to Ukraine. The reason: their country needs to “pay special attention” to meeting domestic demand for this type of coal.
