The three largest electric power enterprises in southern China's Guangdong Province have singed a contract with Indonesia's PT. Berau Coal on Nov. 1, to import 32.5 million tons of coal over a five-year period.

According to the contract, Guangdong Yuedian Group Co. Ltd. accounts for the largest proportion, with around 15 million tons of coal over the period. Shenzhen Energy Co. Ltd. ordered 9 million tons of coal and Huaneng Power International Inc. will purchase the remainder.

Li Xiangming, the vice director of the province's Economic and Trade Commission, said at the signing ceremony for the contract that by the end of 2007, Guangdong will have an annual coal consumption of 125 million tons. With such great demand, the new contract is expected to go some way towards relieve coal supply pressures in the province.

PT. Berau Coal, one of the largest thermal coal producers in Indonesia, currently has an estimated yearly coal production capacity of approximately 38 million tons. The company is located in the district of Berau in East Kalimantan, where coal reserves are believed to be around 2 billion tons. Coal produced in that area is widely known to be of a high quality, and is comprised of only 0.1 percent sulfur, 1 percent ash, and a little nitrogen.
