Kyiv, September 28, 2018
DTEK Energy disclosed unaudited consolidated financial statements for six months of 2018, which ended on 30 June 2018.
“The Ukrainian energy sector is getting ready for large-scale changes. The reform opens up an opportunity to create an electricity market based on the European model. To achieve this objective, major transformational changes are required on all levels, varying from manufacturers to consumers. Strengthening the economy in general and the sector in particular provides a strong basis for successful reforms,” noted DTEK Energy's CEO Dmitriy Sakharuk. “We fully support the ongoing reform and have always been ready to use all our efforts to develop the Ukrainian energy sector. The company has already started pulling together all its resources to boost the efficiency of its operations in the context of a competitive electricity market.”
The company maintains the pace of production of gas grades of coal – 11.4 million tons were produced in six months of 2018. This allowed increasing the supply of electricity to the United Energy System of Ukraine up to 17.5 billion kWh. At the same time, in the total volume of production, generation of electricity from the Ukrainian coal increased by 15.3% and amounted to 13.6 billion kWh. The conversion of power units No. 9 and No. 10 of DTEK Prydniprovska TPP from anthracite to the burning of G-grade coal will further increase the electricity production from domestic coal. This became possible due to capital investments, the volume of which for the reporting period amounted to UAH 3.3 billion. The implementation of the program for updating production capacity will strengthen DTEK Energy's efficiency in the context of a competitive electricity market.
During the reporting period, the absolute production costs increased by UAH 15.2 billion compared to the performance during the first six months of 2017. This is due to the increased imports of anthracite for thermal generation as Ukraine stopped producing this coal grade and increased costs in connection with the purchase of electricity supplied to end consumers.
During the reporting period, DTEK Energy paid state and local taxes of UAH 8.8 billion, which is UAH 0.6 billion higher than the indicator of the first six months of 2017.
