SOFIA (Bulgaria), January 9 (SeeNews) - Bulgarian state-owned lignite coal mining company Mini Maritsa Iztok said on Wednesday it has signed a 13.8 million levs ($8.1 million/7.1 million euro) contract with local rubber products maker Kauchuk for the supply of conveyor belts.

The contract was signed on December 31, Mini Maritsa Iztok said in a statement.

The public procurement procedure for awarding the contract attracted four offers.

Mini Maritsa Iztok'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, and one state-owned. The two power plants owned by ContourGlobal and AES generate around 30% of Bulgaria's electricity output.
