The price of imported coal at $53.5 per kilogram, established by Electric Stations JSC, is not reasonable, the expert Nikolai Kravtsov said to 24.kg news agency.
According to him, in the preparation of procurement plan Electric stations were to conduct monitoring of the prices, but it didn't. For the purchase of 500,000 tons of high-energy coal grades "A", "DG," "G" laid 1.8 billion soms. "The grounds for selecting potential suppliers of fuel and the price for it, was submitted the report on the visit of the commission on the coal-mining enterprises of Kazakhstan. This document doesn't answer the question about the value of objectivity. At the same time only local companies, which have set the price at the time of the Commission's presence in the Republic of Kazakhstan, were considered," Nikolai Kravtsov said.
He added that the specified in the technical specifications caloric value of coal 5500 kcal / kg doesn't meet the requirements specified in the report, which states 5600 kcal / kg. "It is a strange discrepancy, considering not determined fuel prices priori makes "Shabyrkul komir" JSC or its representative, the winner of the upcoming contest," the expert said.
It should be noted that in most of cases Electric stations purchase shabyrkul coal for Bishkek HPP.
