KIEV, August 10. /TASS/. Ukraine will buy about 300 mln kW of electric power from Russia in August 2015, Ukraine’s energy and coal industry minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn said on Monday.
"I think 300 mln [kW] in this month," the minister said. Ukraine is monthly supplying about 450 mln kW/h of electric power to Crimea in average, Demchyshyn added.
According to data of Ukraine’s ministry of energy and coal industry, electric power supplies from Russia rose to 1.2 GW. Kiev started receiving electric power from Russia due to the capacity deficit in Ukraine’s energy system, Demchyshyn said earlier. Kiev has not yet determined the procedure of payment for electricity supplies, he added. Ukraine would probably implement reverse supplies of electric power to Russia in future, according to the minister.
Ukraine is importing electric power within the framework of the contract between Ukraine’s Ukrinterenergo and Russian Inter RAO, press service of Ukraine’s energy company Ukrenergo said on Monday.
"Import amounted to 800 MW as of 21:00 pm of August 9," Ukrenergo said. This conforms to the target value, the company added.
The contract is effective since December 30, 2014 and provides for regular supplies up to 1,500 MW.
