Poland's hard coal production in September fell 9% year on year to 5.63 million mt from 6.2 million mt, while sales dropped 36% to 5.4 million mt, data from the Industrial Development Agency (ARP) showed Friday.


  • Sales down 36%

Output was up 5.6% month on month from 5.33 million mt, while sales inched up 0.2% month on month from 5.39 million mt, ARP said.

Production from Polish mines in September was the highest since March, when output reached just over 6 million mt. Monthly production and sales have never fallen below 5 million mt since ARP began publishing figures in 2007.

Production from Polish mines has steadily fallen over the years. In January 2007, output and sales were over 8 million mt.

At the end of September, there was 2.2 million mt of coal stockpiled at the country's mines, the data showed, up 10% from 2 million mt a year earlier.

In September, the average price for thermal coal sold to power and industrial cogeneration plants reached Zloty 206.17/mt ($56.36/mt), up 4.6% year on year or Zloty 9.08/mt.

The average price of coal sold to district heating plants rose 19% year on year to Zloty 237.66/mt.
