Director General of D.Trading Vitaly Butenko said that DTEK Energo was negotiating with Centrenergo on coal supplies at a price that is almost 10% lower than the gas alternative, Ekonomichna Pravda reports.
“We have submitted our proposals for the supply of coal to Centrenergo TPPs, which, in our opinion, are competitive and very interesting: they are based on transparent pricing rules on an import alternative,” he said.
According to him, the proposal makes it possible to purchase coal 20% lower than what they now pay to state-owned coal enterprises and almost 10% lower than what they pay for gas.
Butenko said that negotiations had been held since July 7 with the management of Centrenergo.
On Wednesday, negotiations continue to discuss technical details.
“We started from different ends. But common sense and construct won, I would say so. At this stage, there is understanding, movement towards everyone. I am cautiously optimistic that we will be able to agree, and this problem with the supply of coal for Centrenergo at a competitive price will be resolved,” Butenko said.
Recall that Centrenergo transferred over UAH 100 million to state-owned coal mines.
Earlier it was reported that Centrenergo has a negative value of UAH 1.4 billion.
