Sales volumes for 1H16 increased 6% year-on-year and amounted to 52.6 million t of coal.
Domestic coal sales volumes grew 9% year-on-year to 28.4 million t as reduced water levels in reservoirs affected hydroelectricity generation and led to stronger demand for coal. Sales volumes to electric power plants consisted of 23.5 million t.
