He said that in 2017, anthracite consumption by Ukrainian power plants would decrease to 5 million tonnes from 10.6 million tonnes in 2016, and to 3 million tonnes in 2018.

Nasalyk recalled that the figures will be reached thanks to re-equipment of anthracite-burning units of thermal power plants that are switching to consumption of gas coal.
