DTEK loss reaches UAH 3.4 bln in six months, financial unbalance exceeds UAH 6 bln– CEO
The losses of DTEK in January-June this year amounted to UAH 3.4 billion, non-payment for electricity supplied- UAH 2.7 billion, and the financial unbalance exceeded UAH 6 billion, DTEK CEO Maksym Tymchenko said at a meeting of the energy headquarters.
"Over the last six months the company's losses came to UAH 3.4 billion confirmed by the NCER, the debt for electricity supplied - UAH 2.7 billion, therefore the non-financial unbalance of our company exceeded UAH 6 billion," he said.
Tymchenko said that the company will only be able to maintain its current level of coal production, and repair its power units in the next two months, if the debts to DTEK are repaid.
At the same time, NCER Chairman Dmytro Vovk said DTEK's statement on its losses being confirmed by the commission does not correspond to reality.
He said that the tariff for electricity production by DTEK includes inflated costs, in particular, depreciation charges are inflated threefold, adding that "corporate centers are overstated by billions of hryvnias."
