Production volumes in Kruonis PSHP and Elektrėnai Complex were significantly higher during the first 4 months of 2020 if compared to the same period in 2019, while Kaunas A. Brazauskas’ HPP production volumes slightly decreased due to unfavourable conditions for electricity production, mostly due to a smaller inflow rate of the river Nemunas.
Due to efficient operation of Kruonis PSHP, the adjusted EBITDA of the Company remained stable over this period. That compensated negative effect of low electricity prices and lower production volumes by Kaunas HPP. When eliminated one-time sales of stocked fuel oil that contributed to EBITDA of 2019 by 1.8 m EUR, the Company's adjusted EBITDA grew 7.0 percent in 2020 in January-April if compared to the same period in 2019.
Revenue from contracts with customers was mainly influenced by lower sales revenue of Kaunas HPP that was affected by decreased electricity prices in the market, lower production volumes by Kaunas HPP and one-time sales of stocked fuel oil that was one of the main factors of higher sales revenue in 2019. When eliminated one-time sales of stocked fuel oil, the Company's revenue from contracts with customers decreased 3.4 percent in 2020 in January-April if compared to the same period in 2019.
