Friday, July 3rd, 2009
Kiev, 03 July 2009 – DTEK, the Ukrainian fuel and energy market leader, is pleased to
announce the formation of DTEK Trading Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary that will undertake
coal trading operations in the domestic and international markets. DTEK’s coal is currently consumed by thermal power plants, coking and chemical plants and steel mills in Ukraine, as well as being exported to power plants and industrial enterprises in Turkey, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, and Lebanon.
The current surplus of coal in Ukraine provides an incentive for DTEK to be proactive in
export markets. The quality of DTEK’s coal meets international standards – calorific value
6,000 kcal/kg and sulfur content below 1%. By the end of this year, the Company plans to
have exported about 1 million tonnes of coal. (In 2008, DTEK exported 160,000 tonnes).
