    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 26 March 2024 10:16

    Grid electricity restrictions applied in four regions; Kherson completed the heating season


    Work to eliminate the consequences of massive hostile attacks on energy facilities continues. Damage assessment and restoration works are underway where possible.

    Yesterday, according to the instructions of Ukrenergo dispatchers, hourly and emergency power outages were applied in Odesa, Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovsk regions and during peak hours in Khmelnytskyi region.

    Given the weather conditions, the local authorities decided to end the heating season in Kherson.

    Two TPP units were shut down for short-term repairs. Due to a technological malfunction, a CHPP was shut down and returned to operation within an hour.

    There is no electricity shortage. No emergency assistance will be provided. Commercial electricity imports are planned for the current day.


    Enemy shelling damaged overhead power lines in Chernihiv region, causing a simultaneous power cut to more than 1,800 consumers in 12 settlements.

    The hostilities caused the disconnection of an overhead line in the frontline area of Kharkiv region and a substation supplying power to residential consumers.

    In Nikopol, an above-ground gas supply pipeline was damaged as a result of hostilities. Gas supply to 5 consumers was cut off.


    Equipment at a 330 kV substation in Zhytomyr region was disconnected due to cable damage, but there were no blackouts and the substation is back online.

    Due to technical reasons, a 35 kV overhead line was disconnected in Odesa region, and household consumers lost power. The line is back online and all consumers are supplied with electricity.


    The water level in the cooling pond is 15.52 metres. This is enough to meet the needs of the plant.


    For the current day, electricity imports are forecasted in the amount of up to 18,649 MWh. No exports are planned.
