COAL & COKE

Coal & Coke

We expect a large increase in domestic lumpy coal demand in 2021. We predict that the domestic coal supply and sales in 2021 will be slightly higher compared to 2020.

The sales target in our coal storages in 2021 is determined as 700,000 tons. Considering our warehouse stock figures, the new year started with the targeted minimum stock levels.

We have a strategy of keeping coal of different origins and qualities in our stocks. In this direction, our efforts towards Colombian coal have been advanced in recent years. We made connections with reliable suppliers. As a result of the positive negotiations received from our warehouses, trial shipments have been started. This strategy will continue in 2021 as well.

On the other hand, the supply of Russian and South African coal from traditional sources will continue. In 2021, it is expected that the demand for coke and coke breeze, and consequently the sales volume, will be slightly higher than the 2020 level. In this direction, our sales target for 2021 is; 25,000 tons for coke breeze and 100,000 tons for metallurgical coke, including the planned sales to Eti Krom.
