A train loaded with 3,392 tonnes of coal produced by Tianchi Energy of TBEA Co., Ltd in Xinjiang autonomous region entered Ningxia Hui autonomous region on May 16. The coal was delivered to CHN Ningxia Electric Power Group, marking the open-up of the second supply channel after supplies from a subsidiary under CHN Energy in Xinjiang, Economic Daily reported.
With the continuous development of the economy, Ningxia has become a net coal buying region. The coal supply-demand gap in the region is expanding year by year, posing new challenges to energy supply work.
At the beginning of this year, the state-run power firm made great efforts to promote coal procurement in Xinjiang as one of the ten major projects of this year. The company has carried out research and exchanges in key coal production enterprises in Xinjiang many times to facilitate the signing of medium - and long-term contracts.
During the first four months, major miners in Ningxia produced 30.28 million tonnes of raw coal, up 10.6% year on year. Thermal power generation during the period was down 4.5% year on year, data showed.
