As reported by the agency, Ukrainian state-owned Energoatom bought the section for importing electricity from Belarus in November with a capacity of 885 out of 900 available MW. Another 15MW was acquired by Electro Community LLC.
Previously, Ukraine’s Energy Ministry asserted that Kiev would not resume electricity imports from Russia and Belarus starting from November. It was then explained that the country has enough coal reserves to ensure stability during the heating season, while electricity producers would be able to purchase more if necessary. Later, it informed that coal reserves at two of the three thermal power plants of the Centrenergo state power generating company would be enough for less than a week only.
