  • Situation in energy system on 13 June
    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 13 June 2023 12:21

    At night, the enemy launched a missile and drone strike on the territory of the country. The attack damaged and disconnected the main power grids in Dnipropetrovsk region. More than 9,000 people are without electricity. In Kryvyi Rih, three mines were left without power, with several dozen people trapped inside. The miners were later rescued. The blast wave also damaged the building of the Kryvyi Rih thermal power plant. By the morning, some of the power company’s customers had already been reconnected, but 6,000 customers in the region remain without electricity.

    The occupiers continue to terrorise the frontline and border areas. Due to intense shelling, 41 settlements in Donetsk region and 3 settlements in Dnipropetrovsk region are without power. Damage to energy infrastructure has been reported in Chernihiv, Sumy, Kherson and Kharkiv regions. Some consumers in Zaporizhzhia region are without electricity due to earlier shelling.

    In Kherson and Mykolaiv regions, the consequences of the flooding caused by the blowing up of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant by the occupying forces are being recorded and remedied.

    Some 15,000 consumers in Kherson are still without electricity. Due to the flooding, 110 substations in Kherson and 35 in the de-occupied part of the region are out of service.

    In Mykolaiv region, 42 transformer substations are flooded, 10 settlements are completely without electricity and another 5 are partially cut off.

    Repair crews have not yet been able to start restoration work on the flooded onshore pumping station of the Kherson CHPP due to the high water levels.

    However, power engineers are already working to restore electricity supply to consumers.

    In Kherson, 270 customers previously disconnected due to flooding have been reconnected, and 70 customers in the region have also been reconnected.

    Water level measurements at the Kakhovka reservoir have been temporarily suspended by the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Centre due to siltation of the sensors.

    Ukrhydroenergo specialists, together with other organisations, continue to look for other ways to carry out the measurements.

    Due to a sharp drop in the water level in the lower reservoir of the Dnipro HPP, the plant’s hydraulic units are operating with restrictions.

    There have been weather-related power cuts. Namely, in Kirovohrad, Sumy and Chernihiv regions. Consumers in Odesa and Dnipro regions lost power as a result of technological disruptions.

    The power system is stable. A large-scale repair campaign is underway at nuclear and thermal power plants in preparation for the heating season.

    Commercial electricity imports totalled 570 MWh over the past day. There were no exports.
