Greece Agrees to Sell Coal-Fired Plants and Mines, Report Says

May 02, 2017

Greece agreed with its lenders to sell coal-fired plants and coal mines equal to about 40% of its dominant power utility Public Power's (pupof) capacity, a government source said on Tuesday.

The agreement is part of a reform deal Greece and its foreign creditors reached early on Tuesday, paving the way for the disbursement of further rescue funds under the country's third international bailout.

Greece will hold a market test to sound out investors interested in buying coal-fired plants and mines owned by Public Power by November, aiming to wrap up the sale by June 2018, a government official told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

PPC is 51%-owned by the state.
