"We will transfer all of our heat power plants to coal. This will take us one year, but we have launched this process. As soon as the law on the removal of heat power plants from the list of facilities not subject to privatization is adopted, we will start their privatization or concession with one condition – that there is a transfer to coal-water mixture technology, which we are developing with China," he said.
Earlier, Boiko said that the transfer of Ukrainian heat power plants could save up to six billion cubic meters of natural gas per year.
The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine included a number of heat power plants on the list of state property that can undergo concession.
