    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 15 February 2024 10:06

    Due to attack on Lviv, regional power company facilities were damaged; a mine in Donetsk region lost power, 50 employees were evacuated

    Power generation and consumption

    There is no deficit in the power system. Domestic power generation is sufficient to meet the needs of consumers, and commercial imports and exports of electricity are planned.

    A TPP unit and a block were put under emergency repair, and the block was put back into operation after the issues were resolved. There are 11 thermal power units in reserve to be used if necessary.

    The situation is under control. The system is balanced. No outage schedules are applied.

    Consequences of shelling

    The morning massive enemy attack did not have a critical impact on the operation of power facilities. However, several facilities of the distribution system operator, including a transformer substation, were severely damaged in Lviv. The infrastructure facility was de-energised.

    Yesterday, shelling caused a fire at a coal mining enterprise in Donetsk region. Overhead power lines were disconnected, which cut off power to household consumers and the mine with 50 employees (all of whom were brought to the surface). The fire was extinguished within two hours and all consumers were supplied with electricity.

    State of the grid

    In Zhytomyr region, a 110 kV overhead line was disconnected for technical reasons, which resulted in the blackout of three substations (household consumers and local industry). All consumers were supplied with power within half an hour.

    Situation at the ZNPP

    The water level in the cooling pond remains stable at 15.59 metres. This is sufficient to meet the needs of the plant.


    For the current day, electricity imports are forecasted at 571 MWh. It is also planned to export up to 2,312 MWh to Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Moldova.
