Inner Mongolia produced 95.32 million tonnes of coal in January, up 25% from a year ago, achieving a good start in the new year, according to data from the Inner Mongolia Energy Administration.
Coal miners in Inner Mongolia have continued high production since the fourth quarter of last year and maintained the output above 93 million tonnes for four consecutive months, thus effectively guaranteeing the stable supply in China coal market.
To ensure supply and safe production in the meantime, nearly 200 coal mines will run normal during the Chinese Lunar New Year holiday in mid-February, with production capacity totaling 860 million tonnes per year.
As of early February, 76 power plants in the region which shoulder the supply guarantee task had 11 million tonnes of coal stocks, sufficient to burn for 17 days.
The coal demand during the holidays is secured overall in Inner Mongolia, said the bureau.
