In order to have coal for the thermal power plants in October-November, it is necessary to introduce the lavas in the spring, the company explained.
Since the beginning of the year, DTEK Energy’s mines have operated six new longwalls to maintain the coal production rates required for the operation of the Ukrainian TPPs. This was announced by the company’s press service on Wednesday, March 23.
So, in January, two longwalls were put into operation, in February – three. Another longwall at the company’s mines was put into operation in March.
“Coal mining is not a fast process. In order to have coal for the TPPs in October-November, the lava has to be brought in in the spring. The miners are now working 24/7 to provide the TPPs with coal in the next less intense heating season,” said the general director of DTEK Energy Ildar Saleev.
It is also reported that by 2022, DTEK Energy mines will operate 28 new longwalls.
Recall that in 2022, DTEK invested almost UAH 4 billion in coal mining enterprises. This made it possible to start preparations for the next heating season now.
And in January, DTEK coal mines were switched to maximum productivity to provide fuel to thermal power plants and thermal power plants during the most difficult heating period in the history of Ukraine.
