On the morning of Wednesday, September 13, the first batch of American solid fuel arrived in Odessa. Its unloading began, the press service of the port "South".

The vessel Ocean Ambitious moored to the reloading complex "Sea trading port" South "at 02:15. On its board there are 62 thousand. t of thermal coal from the USA. It is intended for the TPP of PJSC "Centrenergo", recorded on the port site.

The bulk carrier is to be unloaded in three days.

"The experience of unloading of anthracite bulk carriers from South Africa confirms our ability to effectively organize the process of sending shipments to power engineers, in order to timely replenish the stock at the TPP's warehouses," he said.. director of the port "Yuzhny" Vitaly Zhukovsky. And I assured that the schedule of reception and sending will be fulfilled.

In a tone to it have sounded also words of the resident of the American chamber of commerce in Ukraine Andrey Gundera. He called the good news about the arrival of the first batch of American anthracite coal to Ukraine. "The cooperation of the member company of Chamber Xcoal Energy & Resources and PJSC Centreenergo is an important step for the development of Ukrainian-American trade relations," Gunder said..

For joy, the uninhabited skip, however, as always.

Since May, the SE of the MTP Yuzhny has unloaded more than 220 thousand. of thermal coal from South Africa for thermal generation of DTEK.

According to the contract signed in August by "Centrenergo" and the American Xcoal Energy & Resources contract, before the end of the year, Americans must supply Ukraine with 700 thousand. t anthracite.

And the first batch of such coal left the US for Ukraine on August 22. Its price will be $ 113 per ton, taking into account the delivery to the Odessa port. The cost of each "parcel" will be different.

Earlier, in July, it became known that the US tripled the price of coking coal for Ukraine. Its cost soared from $ 71 to $ 206 per tonne. This is unlikely to have a positive impact on the economy of the Nezalezhnaya and could lead to a reduction in jobs in the steel industry, experts warned..

And before that, information was received that Ukraine would have to pay about $ 110-130 per ton for an anthracite from the United States, which would be the most expensive price for Ukrainian companies when buying solid fuel.

For most countries in the world, this is an absolutely usual business, and for the Nezalezhny this event is of special importance, since there is an additional argument in favor of breaking off relations with Russia.

Due to the conflict in the Donbass, Ukraine lost access to most mines. The most profitable mines, where anthracite is mined, remained on the territory that was not controlled by Kiev. And those enterprises that submit to the authorities of the Nezalezhnaya mine extract unprofitable gas coals.

After stopping coal purchases from the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, Kiev began to look for new suppliers. In 2016 year. These were the two countries - Russia and South Africa.
