As reported, Ukraine plans in 2018 to increase exports of electricity to the EU and Moldova by 13.3% from 2017 to 5.855 billion kWh. According to the forecast for 2018, deliveries from the Burshtyn TPP energy island to Hungary, Slovakia, Romania will be 3.6 billion kWh, to Poland 1.2 billion kWh, and to Moldova 1.055 billion kWh.
Ukraine in January-May 2018 increased electricity exports by 1.3% (34.684 million kWh) compared to the same period in 2017, to 2.653 billion kWh, the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry has told Interfax-Ukraine. Power supply from the Burshtyn TPP energy island towards Hungary, Slovakia and Romania increased by 10.4% (by 159.488 million kWh), to 1.686 billion kWh.
Electricity deliveries to Poland increased by 24.3% (by 128.407 million kWh), to 656.551 million kWh. Electricity supplies to Moldova amounted to 310.767 million kWh, which is 44.9% (253.211 million kWh) less than in January-May 2017. Ukrainian electricity was not exported to Belarus and Russia in January-May 2017 and January-May 2018

DTEK Energy’s thermal power plants (TPP) increased electricity supply by 12.1% in January-May 2018 compared to the same period in 2017, to 13.5 billion kWh, the company’s press service has reported.
According to its information, in particular power supply from thermal power plants working on gas coal grew by 21.7%, to 11.5 billion kWh, while those on anthracite reduced by almost 30%, to 2 billion kWh.
The press service noted that the company increases production of electricity from Ukrainian coal through a project to transfer two blocks of Prydniprovska TPP to gas coal (completed in late 2017), as well as increased loading of its other TPPs on gas coal.
“DTEK TPPs operate in the mode required for the power system and show very good dynamics of electricity production from gas coal. It’s nice to see that the project we implemented at Prydniprovska TPP not only helps reduce the volume of coal imports to the country, but also creates prerequisites for building up own production in Ukraine,” Director for Power Generation at DTEK Energy Serhiy Kurylenko said.
DTEK Energy plans by the end of 2018 to complete the transfer of two more units of Prydniprovska TPP from anthracite to gas coal, which will allow the station to provide the required amount of electricity production without using anthracite.
Ukraine in January-May of this year exported electricity worth $137.168 million, in particular in May for $27.837 million. According to the State Fiscal Service, Hungary received electricity worth $85.312 million, Poland for $32.575 million, Moldova for $15.629 million, other countries for $3.652 million.
