Lubelski Węgiel Bogdanka wants to finalize a contract with a German partner for the production of components for wind farms in the company, said President Artur Wasil.
“The strategic assumption of Bogdanka’s development will be the development of new areas of activity with the use of production for renewable energy sources and within the so-called circular economy. We want to earn money on the extraction and sale of coal and allocate part of the funds to these projects. We are in the process of talking about acquiring competences for the production of elements for windmills. In a year’s time we should finish talks with a German partner interested in this investment, and then build a production hall, “Wasil said on the sidelines of the” School of Underground Exploitation “conference.
In the opinion of the president, the interest in the purchase of coal mined in Bogdanka has increased significantly recently.
“Recently, customers from Germany have asked about the possibility of signing a supply contract. At the moment, however, the volume of coal is no longer available. The company upholds its production plans for 9 million tons of coal this year, a possible correction will be possible after summarizing the results for the third quarter. It cannot be ruled out that also next year, coal will be exported to recipients in Ukraine, ”added the president.
