    Situation in the frontline regions

    Hostile terror continues in the frontline and border regions with russia. On Saturday, a 110 kV power line supplying a mine near Toretsk was cut off in Donetsk region due to shelling. There were 27 miners underground at the time of the power outage, all of whom were brought to the surface. The damaged line has been repaired.

    In Sumy region, a power engineering team came under fire while conducting inspection in Shostka district. Anton Kravtsov, a 27-year-old electrician, and Leonid Doroshenko, a 31-year-old driver, were injured. They were taken by ambulance to a local hospital. Their lives are not in danger.

    In Kharkiv region, a 110 kV power line was damaged by shelling. As a result, more than 9,000 consumers lost power for several hours and were supplied with electricity via backup lines. Repairs will be carried out with the approval of the military.

    Some consumers in Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Chernihiv and Dnipro regions also remain without power. Repair crews are working where the security situation allows.

    Power generation

    Power engineers continue to prepare the power system for the heating season, which may be affected by russian attacks. A large-scale repair campaign is underway at thermal, hydro and nuclear generation facilities.

    Consequences of bad weather

    Due to a storm in Chernivtsi region, eleven 10 kV power lines were disconnected, which resulted in power outages for more than 13,000 consumers in 25 settlements. Repair works are ongoing.

    Consequences of the Kakhovka HPP dam blow-up

    In Kherson, power engineers continue to repair damaged lines. Power has been restored to several high-rise buildings in the Ostriv neighbourhood, which was most affected by flooding. About 9,000 consumers remain without power. Power engineers are working to restore power supply, but repairs are slowed down by shelling.

    Situation at the ZNPP

    There is a slight decrease in the water level in the ZNPP cooling pond. It is currently at 16.05 metres. This is sufficient to meet the needs of the plant.
