Czech firm wins New Caledonia coal contract

The plants are for the French territory's leading nickel mining company SLN which is looking to replace its existing power plants because they will soon no longer comply with stricter European Union pollution rules.

Radio Prague reports the New Caledonia contract represents a rare excursion for Vítkovice outside the European sphere where it usually wins major contracts.

Vítkovice says the contract to the tune of around 350 million US dollars should provide work and orders for other Czech companies as well.
