A ship loaded with 62,000 tons of steam coal last week departed the port of the American city of Baltimore and should arrive in Yuzhny port in Ukraine in mid-September, Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States Valeriy Chaly has reported.
According to him, the relevant contract for the supply of coal was signed between the U.S. company XCoal Energy and Resources and Ukraine’s state-owned Centrenergo on July 14.
“According to the terms of the contract, it’s worth expecting the delivery of 700,000 tons of anthracite steam coal from the United States by the end of the year. It was planned that the volume of the first batch will be 85,000 tons. But the shippers managed to quickly find a slightly smaller vessel for 62,000 tons. I was present there during the loading along with the American high officials. The vessel with American coal last week left the port of Baltimore, it will take about three weeks to go to Ukraine, therefore we can expect its arrival in Yuzhny port by the middle of September,” the diplomat said.
According to him, Centrenergo has full information about the supplies of this anthracite coal to Ukraine. (Interfax-Ukraine/Ukrainian metal)
