Electricity exports from the Burshtyn TPP Energy Island to Hungary, Slovakia and Romania increased 31.1% (by 523.7 million kilowatt-hours) to 2.21 billion kilowatt-hours. Exports to Poland amounted to 526.9 million kilowatt-hours. Ukraine did not export electricity to Poland in the same period of 2011.
Electricity exports to Central European countries (Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Poland) grew 62.4% year-on-year in January-July 2012 (by 1.05 billion kilowatt-hours) to 2.73 billion kilowatt-hours.
The increase in supplies to Europe is due to the resumption of exports to Poland in March 2012, the ministry said.
