CIL may offer 30 million tonne of thermal and coking coal for non power sector

27 Jun 2018

Energy Infra Post reported that Coal India plans to offer a mix of 30 million tonnes of thermal and coking coal at its recently announced fourth tranche of long-term supply contract for the non-power sector. In the auction, the offer price for the coal would be the notified price for the non-power sector. Notified price for non-power is almost 20% higher than price fixed for the power sector.
A senior Coal India executive said that “Auctions would be held in phases where each phase would be meant for a specific industry and the first one would be for sponge iron sector where around 7 million tonnes of coal is on offer by seven Coal India subsidiaries.”
This would be followed by offers for other sectors like cement, steel and captive power plants. According to a senior Coal India executive, 25 million tonnes of thermal coal would be on offer under the auction while the rest at 5 million tonnes would be coking coal for metallurgical uses.
