Moreover, the Company has developed technologies and technical conditions for mixing brown coal from Czech Republic with brown coal from Ukraine (BR-1) for pulverized burning.
When developing the mix, aggregate computation method is applied depending on characteristics of types of brown coal used for mixing. The final mix complies with all requirements for boilers and coal pulverization systems of power stations. Such mixes have been successfully used at the Ukrainian Ladyzhyn and Zaporozye power stations for over 2 years.
Mixing brown coal produced in Ukraine with a Sulphur index of 1,99% with brown coal produced in Czech Republic with a Sulphur index of 0.5% in the above mentioned ratio will result in a Sulphur index of less than 1% (0.99%), which complies with all European regulations. Moreover, mixing technologies allow to save up to 10 euro per ton resulting in great optimization of procurement cost.
Moreover, the Energy Investment Company offers the smallest cost per 1 MJ compared to the cost of 1 MJ of brown coal with similar characteristics produced in other countries.
