Over 95% of the coal produced by UK Coal is supplied to the power generating sector with the remaining coal sold to the domestic and industrial markets.
Our main customers are the large generators such as Drax, EDF, E.ON and Scottish & Southern.

The vast majority of sales in this sector are to five power stations – Drax, Ferrybridge, Cottam, West Burton and Ratcliffe. All of these stations are fitted with flue-gas de-sulphurisation equipment (FGD) which is a technology used to remove sulphur dioxide (SO2) from the exhaust flue gases.
