  • Situation in energy system as of 10 July
    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 10 July 2024 11:13

    Enemy UAVs attacked power infrastructure in Rivne region; a fire broke out in a mine in Donetsk region due to shelling; consumer restrictions are in place throughout the day

    POWER GENERATION, TRANSMISSION, CONSUMPTION

    Due to massive russian shelling, there is a capacity shortage in the power system. Yesterday, to partially cover it, Ukraine additionally attracted emergency assistance from the power systems of Poland and Slovakia.

    As of today, the hourly outage schedules are expected to be in effect from 0:00 to 24:00. If the situation changes, the information will be updated.

    Due to the heat wave in Ukraine, electricity consumption may increase, in particular due to the active use of air conditioners. We urge everyone to consume electricity sparingly. This enables power engineers to keep the power system more stable.

    No power cuts will be imposed on critical infrastructure companies and companies that import more than 80% of their electricity in accordance with a government decree.

    The main reason for the electricity restrictions is the enemy’s attacks on the energy infrastructure and the negative consequences of these attacks.

    CONSEQUENCES OF THE SHELLING

    In Poltava region, a high-voltage overhead line was disconnected during an air raid, which cut power to equipment at several substations. An inspection revealed a wire break.

    In Rivne region, a UAV attack was carried out on one of the energy facilities. The attack cut off power to the regional power company’s substation, local industry and household consumers. All consumers were supplied with power via a backup scheme.

    In Rivne region, an overhead line of a distribution system operator was also disconnected due to a UAV attack.

    EMERGENCIES

    A fire broke out in a mine in Donetsk region as a result of shelling. The fire was extinguished by mine workers (there were no people in the mines). No one was injured.

    STATE OF THE GRID

    Yesterday, a high-voltage overhead line connecting the power systems of Ukraine and Hungary was disconnected. The line is now back online. The cause of the outage is being investigated.

    In the central region, equipment at one of the high-voltage substations was disconnected for technological reasons. As a result, 52 residential buildings and 64 institutions lost power. All consumers were supplied with power via a backup scheme.

    POWER OUTAGES FOR CONSUMERS

    The weather caused new power outages in Sumy and Kherson regions. Due to the hostilities and technical failures, 528 settlements are without power. Power companies have supplied power to 31,255 customers who were cut off as a result of hostilities and technical disruptions.

    SITUATION AT ZNPP

    The water level in the cooling pond is 15.00 metres. This is sufficient to meet the plant’s needs.

    IMPORT/EXPORT

    For the current day, imports from Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary and Moldova are forecasted in the total amount of 28,487 MWh and a maximum capacity of 1,444 MW. No exports are taking place and are not foreseen.
