A vessel from Colombia with 80 thousand tons of gas-coal for the thermal power plant of DTEK Holding arrived in the port of TIS (Odesa region).
The company’s press service reports that the Lowlends Ligjt vessel is being unloaded at the port, after which coal will go to the warehouses of thermal power plants.
“The warehouses of our eight thermal power plants have mainly domestic coal, which has been and remains a priority for the company. DTEK Energy miners have mined 16.5 million tons of coal for 9 months. We also replenish warehouses with imported fuel. A fifth coal ship from Colombia arrived at the port. In total, we contracted 388 thousand tons of coal abroad”, said Dmytro Sakharuk, CEO of DTEK Energy.
Earlier it was reported that Russia had blocked coal supplies through the Belarusian corridor.
Recall that from June 1, there is a ban on the supply of coal and oil products to Ukraine. Suppliers now need special permissions for export.
