SOFIA (Bulgaria), October 10 (SeeNews) - Bulgarian state-owned coal mining company Mini Maritsa Iztok said on Thursday that it has opened a tender for awarding a contract for supply of diesel fuel, worth an estimated 9.6 million levs ($5.4 million/4.9 million euro).
The contract envisages supply of 10 ppm diesel to several of the company's mines, Mini Maritsa Iztok said in a tender notice.
The company's coal mines in southern Bulgaria sell their output mainly to three thermal power plants located nearby, two of them owned by ContourGlobal and AES, respectively, and one state-owned. The two power plants owned by ContourGlobal and AES generate around 30% of Bulgaria's electricity output.
Mini Maritsa Iztok booked revenue of 254.2 million levs in the first half of the year and posted a net loss of 1.8 million levs.
