We are talking about 100,000 tons in September, which are now critically needed by our Polish partners.
“Coal reserves in our warehouses are almost 2 million tons, which is 2.5 times more than on this date last year. Therefore, we are ready to support our Polish friends,” the Ukrainian Prime Minister clarified.
In addition, the reconstruction of the power transmission line from the Khmelnytskyi NPP to the substation in Rzeszow, Poland, is underway. Repair works will continue until December 2022. This will allow Ukraine to export up to 1,000 MW of electricity to Poland.
“Currently, we export only 300 MW to the European energy grid. We are doing everything possible so that by the end of 2022, the amount of available transmission capacity in the direction of Slovakia, Romania and Hungary will increase by another 200-300 MW, and in the direction of Poland – by more than 1,000 MW.”
