Unlike global trends in Europe and South Africa, in February, Polish steam coal prices kept increasing, as they were since last summer. For the first time since May 2016 PSCMI2 (marker for heat plants and other industrial consumers) was on top of DES ARA prices!
PSCMI1 increased by 0,6% MOM to 228,22 PLN/t (15% more YOY), while PSCMI2 increased even more, by 3,6% MOM up to 299,16 PLN/t (31,5% YOY) and is very close to break the level of 300 PLN/t which was last seen in 2013.
