"In three years we should fully get rid of dependence on coal from the ATO zone," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Thursday. The second reactor of the state-run Centrenergo's Zmiyiv Thermal Power Plant will be switched to gas coal on March 1 and its fifth reactor in three months, the minister said. According to him, this will reduce the anthracite coal purchases by 1.5-2 million tons per year. Nasalyk also thanked the DTEK energy company and TechNova, which started to buy coal not only from the ATO zone but from other suppliers.
