”After the purchase for the whole transport branch from two years ago which brought savings of almost 40 million Czech crowns and one year ago which decreased costs by another 80 million Czech crowns we continued increasing demanded volumes of electrical power by 24 thousand MWh and natural gas by 15 thousand MWh. In addition to the Ministry of Transport and SŽDC, other organisation joined the purchase as well: České dráhy, a.s.
