Kazakhstan sees increase in coal demand in Nur-Sultan

BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 8


Demand for coal has grown in Nur-Sultan, Deputy General Director of KTZh-Freight Transportation LLP Kanat Kobesov said during a press tour to the coal dead ends of the capital, Trend reports referring to Kazinform.

“The fact that coal is sold on the fly is natural, the demand is great. In addition, the demand for coal has increased dramatically. Nur-Sultan itself has grown; it is a millionth city. Statistics show that in nine months we shipped almost 77 million tons, which is four percent more than in 2020. There are all the facts that the demand for coal has grown,” Kobesov said.

According to him, in order to avoid excitement, coal dead ends should work with the population.

“I can advise the coal dead ends to direct their service, marketing and work with the population. We have monitoring groups that pass all the dead ends every day. It is impossible to please everyone, but still coal is available in the capital,” Kobesov noted.

Earlier, Kobesov commented on the situation regarding the supply of the capital with coal.

“As such, there is no excitement at coal dead ends, this is speculative excitement. It is directly related to coal sellers. I will give simple statistics: for seven days in October, we unloaded 171 coal wagons for Nur-Sultan," Kobesov said.
