Electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is fully sufficient to meet the needs of consumers; natural gas reserves in storage facilities amount to almost 15.9 bcm
Electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is fully sufficient to meet the needs of consumers. A turbine at one of the TPPs was repaired, adding an additional 73 MW of capacity to the grid. A large-scale repair campaign is underway at thermal, hydro and nuclear generation facilities.
As temperatures drop, local governments are gradually starting the heating season. Sufficient resources have been accumulated for the season – natural gas reserves in storage facilities amount to almost 15.9 bcm (according to the Government’s plans, the required volume was to be 14.7 bcm at the start of the heating season).
Consequences of the shelling
Work is underway to restore gas supply to consumers who were disconnected due to enemy shelling of gas transmission system facilities in Kharkiv region. Over 2,000 households have been reconnected over the past day. 2,000 households remain without gas supply. Emergency repair works are ongoing.
Situation in the frontline regions
The occupiers continue to terrorise the frontline and border areas. Four settlements in Donetsk region were cut off from electricity due to shelling. Some consumers in Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson and Chernihiv regions are also without electricity.
Repair teams are working where the security situation allows.
In total, power companies have supplied power to 24,500 consumers over the past day. Most of them are customers in Donetsk region.
Situation at the ZNPP
The water level in the ZNPP cooling pond remains stable at 15.72 metres. This is sufficient to meet the needs of the plant.
Commercial electricity imports totalled 10 MWh over the past day. Exports to Slovakia and Moldova totalled 3,630 MWh.
