KYIV, Feb 10 – DTEK will increase coal imports to 450,000 tons in February, which will secure the operation of as much equipment of the company's power plants as possible in February-March, as well as allow meeting obligations to Centerenergo, DTEK CEO Maksym Timchenko has said.
"We are overcoming the lack of coal through contracts with Poland and Kazakhstan. In February, we will have 450,000 tons of imported coal. We are meeting our obligations to Centrenergo to supply 250,000 tons of coal. We extract coal in our mines as much as it is technically possible. And we bring the coal imbalance that is needed to get through February-March," he said.
