KYIV - Centrenergo Statement - At the invitation of the U.S. Government in June of this year we visited the United States to explore importing coal products to Ukraine. Prior to this visit numerous consultations took place at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv with, in particular, the representatives of the U.S. Commercial Service and the Department of Energy.

In addition to official meetings at the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Commerce, the company's management visited the five largest coal mining companies in Pennsylvania. All of these companies were among potential suppliers identified by the USG.

This visit resulted in an understanding of mining capabilities and capacities as well as the capacity to export coal products to meet the needs of Centrenergo’s thermal power plant.

The best proposal came from one of the largest American coal mining and exporting companies - Xcoal Energy & resources, with which Centrenergo pursued further negotiations of a mutually beneficial contract. 

As a result, on July 14th 2017, in order to enable the stable operation of Centrenergo’s thermal power plants, Centrenergo signed a contract to import coal with Xcoal Energy & Resources [Latrobe, PA,].  

The first vessel carrying 85,000 tons of coal is already expected to arrive in Yuzhny port in early September this year. Under the terms of contract, the next 120,000 tons will arrive by the end of September. Overall about 700,000 tons of American coal will be delivered to thermal power plants by the end of 2017.

The uninterrupted supply of coal by the American company will enable the full functioning of Centernergo’s power plants, which in turn will ensure a stable autumn-winter heating season in 2017-2018.

I also would like to recognize the assistance that has been provided by the Embassy of the United States, namely by the representatives of the U.S. Commercial Service, the Economics Department, and Department of Energy. Their active position and contribution facilitated the successful start of cooperation with the U.S. company for the import of American coal to Ukraine.
Thank you for your attention.
