Sakhnakhshiri LLC (GIG Group, Tbilisi, Georgia) has won a tender of the public joint-stock company Centrenergo to supply 700,000 tons of coal, according to the results of an auction held in the ProZorro procurement system.

If the results of the tender are approved, the cost of coal for Centrenergo will be around $97 per ton with the initially expected around $102 per ton.

Coal will be shipped to Zmiyivska and Trypilska thermal power plants (TPPs) in May-December (CIF Black Sea ports, Ukraine). The smallest batch is 70,000 tons. (Interfax-Ukraine/Ukrainian metal)
