CONSEQUENCES OF THE KAKHOVKA HPP DAM BLOW-UP
Efforts are underway to assess and eliminate the consequences of the flooding caused by the dam blast. Power engineers have managed to power up one of Kherson’s substations to restore the operation of the city’s critical infrastructure facility, the sewage pumping station. The city’s 13,000 consumers, 100 transformer substations and 9 overhead power lines remain disconnected.
The vast majority of the disconnected consumers are located in the city’s Ostriv neighbourhood. Reconnection work is progressing slowly due to the shelling of the city and significant flooding of power equipment.
The repair campaign continues at thermal, hydro and nuclear power generation facilities. Repairs at one of the NPP units were completed 4 days ahead of schedule. 1,000 MW of capacity has been added to the power system. The electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is fully sufficient to meet the needs of consumers. There is no deficit.
SITUATION AT THE ZNPP
The water level in the cooling pond is 16.56 metres. This is sufficient to meet the needs of the plant.
