Ukrainian energy holding DTEK won the tender for electricity supplies to Moldova. DTEK Trading $50.2 megawatt hour offer was better than that by the current supplier Moldavian GRES power plant, located in Transnistria, offering $54.4 megawatt hour, Commersant reported. Moldavian GRES power plant, controlled by the Russian Joint Stock Company Inter RAO UES, now looses it’s key contract on electricity supplies to Moldova. Previously they used to supply electricity for $44.9 megawatt hour until March 31.
One of the outlet sources state that before the tender Moldavian Energocom signed a contract with DTEK for year import (about 3 billion megawatt hours). It is yet unclear if DTEK shall fully cover Moldova’s demand.
90 mln megawatt hours are factored for export in the Ukrainian energy balance. Moldova needs 270 mln megawatt hours, thus Ukrainian export covers only 30% of demand.
