From - for it manufacturers of the electric power of joint-stock company “ Dalenergo “ and Joint-Stock Company “ LuTEK “ worked at a loss more than 12 % a year and could not support manufacture in working order. The situation became critical when in December have struck pjatidesjatigradusnye frosts, coal-mining manufactures of Siberia have lowered coal delivery, and governors of the areas next to Primorski Krai have forbidden coal export for the borders.
