    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 12 June 2023 11:59

    The occupiers have intensified shelling of power facilities in the frontline regions, and due to the blowing up of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant dam, 22 settlements in Mykolaiv region and the de-occupied part of Kherson region were left without electricity.

    In Kherson and Mykolaiv regions, the aftermath of the flood caused by the occupiers’ blowing up of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant is being recorded and mitigated.

    More than 15,000 consumers in Kherson remain without electricity. In the de-occupied part of the region, 8 settlements are without electricity due to flooding. In Mykolaiv region, 13 settlements remain without power. Power engineers are ready to start restoration work as soon as the water starts to recede. In particular, the flooded pumping station at Kherson CHPP will be inspected. A full assessment of the damage will be possible in two weeks after the water recedes.

    Due to the critical level of water drop in the Kakhovka reservoir after the explosion of the Kakhovka HPP, Ukrhydroenergo specialists no longer carry out water measurements. From now on, measurements will be carried out only by experts from the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Centre.

    Dnipro HPP-1 and Dnipro HPP-2 are operating with restrictions due to lower water levels. All other hydroelectric power plants in the Dnipro cascade are operating as planned.

    Experts from Ukrhydroenergo, the Ministry of Energy and engineers are working on a project to dam the Kakhovka reservoir, which can be implemented after the de-occupation of the territories.

    The situation at the occupied ZNPP. According to monitoring data, the water level in the cooling pond is 16.67 metres. However, the IAEA experts appealed to the occupiers to provide the mission with wider access to the territory and, accordingly, to verify the water level data.

    The occupiers have intensified shelling of energy infrastructure in the frontline and border areas. In Zaporizhzhia region, a missile and bomb attack destroyed the administrative building of an energy facility and damaged vehicles.

    Intense shelling, including with the use of attack drones, damaged power lines in Sumy, Kharkiv, Odesa and Donetsk regions.

    Power outages were reported in Lviv, Kyiv, Zhytomyr, Dnipro and Chernihiv regions due to bad weather. Most consumers have been reconnected.

    The power system is stable. A large-scale repair campaign is underway at nuclear and thermal power plants in preparation for the heating season.

    Commercial electricity imports totalled 7,760 MWh over the past day. There were no exports.
