Ukraine resumes electric energy supplies to Poland

Since November, the state foreign-economic enterprise UkrInterEnergo will continue fulfillment of a contract on electric energy exports to Poland, Fuel and Energy Ministry's press secretary Fent Di informed.

According to him, reduction of exports has been considered due to coal imbalance at storage facilities of thermoelectric power stations. Since the situation has changed now, it is planned to increase export supplies.

Presently, according to Fent Di, the export volume to Poland entered the former level, 200 megawatt, while in early October it was reduced to 100 megawatt.

According to the Fuel and Energy Ministry, export to Poland was resumed in April 2008, 612 million kWh of electric energy was exported over this time.

In early October, Fuel and Energy Minister Yuriy Prodan stated about possibility of reduction of Ukrainian electric energy exports to Poland since November 1 due to unprofitableness caused by disparity in export prices and prices existing on the domestic wholesale electric energy market.
