(Posted on 11/03/19)

EUBALTICA, the advisory and consultancy company for Morska Agencja Gdynia (MAG) in Poland has supplied information regarding coal imports to Poland in 2018 and coal production in January, 2019:

 

Imports of hard coal to Poland amounted to 19.68 million tonnes in 2018, Deputy Minister of Energy Grzegorz Tobiszowski informed. The drop in imports is forecast only from 2019 or 2020.

Coal imports to Poland amounted to 19.68 million tonnes in 2018.

Last year, coal was imported mainly from:

  • Russia (13.47 million tonnes),
  • United States (1.53 million tonnes),
  • Australia (1.47 million tonnes),
  • Colombia (1.46 million tonnes),
  • Mozambique (0.55 million tonnes),
  • Kazakhstan (0.50 million tonnes),
  • Czech Republic (0.36 million tonnes),
  • the remaining countries accounted for about 0.3 million tons.
