PKP Cargo has signed a contract with Tauron Wydobycie for the transport of 8.5 million tons of coal in 2016-2017 for a total gross price of PLN 142.3 million (EUR 31.8 million). The contract marks another large coal transportation tender won by PKP Cargo after its best bid for the transportation of 1 million tons of coal from Bogdanka in Lublin to PGNiG Termika’s plants in Warsaw in 2016. The gross value of the Bogdanka contract is in excess of PLN 20 million (EUR 4.48 million). In the coming 12 months, the PKP Cargo Group will transport a total of over 1.7 million tons of “black gold” to PGNiG Termika’s cogeneration plant.
The PKP Cargo Group has an almost 60% share in the coal rail transport market in Poland.
