    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 27 March 2024 10:40

    Electricity restrictions were imposed in 4 regions; a mine with 12 people was cut off due to shelling


    Yesterday, due to significant damages and the inability to transmit the required volumes of electricity, hourly and emergency power cuts were applied in Odesa, Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovsk regions and during peak hours in Khmelnytskyi region.

    Given the weather conditions, the heating season in Kamianske, Dnipropetrovsk region, has been completed.

    Ukrenergo also reduced the load on renewable energy facilities from 16:07 to 17:14 by 398 MW.

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


    A mine in Donetsk region was de-energised as a result of the hostilities (with 12 people inside). As of the morning, the mine has been powered up.

    A 110 kV overhead line in Sumy region was disconnected as a result of shelling, but there were no power outages. An inspection revealed a broken wire, and the overhead line is under emergency repair.

    A UAV was spotted on the territory of a substation in Dnipropetrovsk region. The staff was taken out of the substation and the State Emergency Service was called. The UAV was removed.

    Over 400 consumers in 6 settlements in Chernihiv region were simultaneously disconnected from electricity supply due to the shelling of overhead lines.


    Due to a technological failure, equipment at the 110 kV substation in Odesa region, which supplies the railway, was briefly out of service (train traffic was disrupted). The substation was quickly re-energised and train traffic resumed.

    For technical reasons, a 110 kV overhead line in Chernihiv region went out of service, resulting in a power outage in the settlement. Within 20 minutes, all consumers were supplied with power.


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


    For the current day, electricity imports are forecast at 12,702 MWh. No exports are planned.
