Ministry: SUFFICIENT energy product quantities for ELECTRICITY generation
At the session of the task force for monitoring the security of energy and energy product supplying in Serbia, it was concluded that sufficient energy product quantities had been secured for uninterrupted operation and generation of electricity in thermal capacities, said the Ministry of Mining and Energy.
At the session, chaired by Energy Minister Zorana Mihajlovic, data were also presented about the state of electricity capacities, as well as reports on the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity, and on the implementation of plans for the purchase of additional quantities of energy products for thermal power plants and heating plants.
As it was stated, reports on the state of coal and fuel oil stocks for the operation of thermal power plants were presented, as well as consumption projections for the period until the end of the month and until the end of the winter season.
The task force also discussed the plan for the procurement of additional quantities of fuel oil, and the previous realization of the transport of that fuel was presented.
The transmission system, as it was said, functions without major problems, as well as the distribution system, which continues with regular, planned maintenance and there are no major, unplanned outages, i.e. disconnections for users.
The situation in the gas sector and the operation of heating plants in Serbia were also discussed, and it was concluded that there were no major problems in the functioning of the systems, since energy consumption was lower during the holidays.
