Thermal power plants being prepared for privatization

The Cabinet of Ministers will soon begin preparing thermal power enterprises for privatization, Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs Serhiy Tihipko told at a press conference in Kharkiv. “Now we have to quickly find consultants who would help us deal with the thermal power industry. This is an asset-intensive industry, and rather critical to us,” the official stressed. Tihipko said that the generation of thermal energy is currently very expensive and uneconomical, and provides fewer competitive opportunities for Ukraine in the energy market.
