Power concerns use imported coal
   
Listed power concerns PGE, Tauron and Enea are utilizing imported coal in their power plants due to the insufficient output at Poland's state-controlled mining group PGG, insiders tell the daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna.
PGE is using the coal imported by its dependent EDF Paliwa firm via Gdansk's North Port, while Tauron has bought some coal from the state's coal trading firm Weglokoks, insiders reveal. Weglokoks have ordered a new delivery of low-sulfur coal from Columbia, the daily writes.
PGE is about to use some more imported coal in the winter months, the newspaper found out. As many as six Polish power plants reported a shortage in their coal inventories to the energy market regulator URE, the daily adds, citing URE press office's Justyna Pawlinska official confirmation of its findings.
PGE, Enea and Energa abstained from detailed comments on the matter citing the confidentiality policy and the need to optimize fuel utilization, while Tauron did not answer the daily's questions.
