NEURC will check thermal power plants to ensure the necessary fuel reserves

The National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission (NEURC) informs that on January 25, 2021, it held a meeting and decided to conduct unscheduled on-site inspections of DTEK Dniproenergo, DTEK Zakhidenergo, Donbasenergo, Centrenergo, DTEK Skhidenergo to provide them with the necessary reserves of appropriate fuel to ensure the security of electricity supplies.

The rationale for the resolution notes the inspections were conditioned by the appeal of Ukrenergo and the provision of documents confirming the indicated violations. Thus, the company announced that "coal supplies do not meet the needs," and coal stocks "are almost five times lower than last year – coal stocks were 2375 thousand tons in this period of 2020."

Earlier, Ukrenergo reported about the critical situation with coal stocks.
