Before the introduction of the “Rotterdam+” owners Ferroalloy plants earned through feed-in tariffs for the electricity and brought in offshore not less than $ 6 billion
This was stated by energy expert Dmitry marunich in the comment for publication “Komsomolskaya Pravda in Ukraine” writes an Apostrophe.
“Before the introduction of the “Rotterdam+” the margin from cheap coal remained in the hands of the owners of the Ferroalloy enterprises. For anybody not a secret that one of the major players in the Ferroalloy business is the group “Privat” Igor Kolomoisky. My colleagues and I recently considered how much money they brought in offshore, and it turned out that at least $ 6 billion. That is, profits from cheap coal, and as a result, cheap electricity settled in the pockets of individual businessmen”, — said marunych.
The introduction of the “Rotterdam+” allowed to stabilize the situation in the energy sector, to forget about rolling blackouts of electricity generation companies got the resources to retrofit their units with anthracite coal to gas coal, reducing Ukraine’s dependence on imported coal. Establishing a fair price for coal has allowed to solve several problems of state-owned mines and to rescue from the collapse of the coal mining industry.
“Part of the state mines are unprofitable, and the cost of coal is higher than those bought by the method of “Rotterdam+”. If you have not entered this methodology, the state-owned mines would raise additional losses of 8 billion UAH. And it would lead to new debt of state-owned enterprises, delays of salaries and, as a result, once the protests of the miners under the Cabinet” — said the expert.
