    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 22 July 2023 12:48

    State of the grids

    A transformer at the 220 kV substation of the transmission system operator in Lviv region has been disconnected due to an accident. This led to a power outage. Consumers were supplied via backup lines.

    An overhead line of the 750 kV transmission system operator in Mykolaiv region was also disconnected. Consumers were not disconnected from the power supply. The overhead line is under repair.

    Situation in the frontline regions

    In Donetsk region, 18 settlements lost power due to shelling. In particular, two coal mines were cut off. Workers were blocked underground for some time. Later, the miners were successfully brought to the surface. Power engineers are working to restore electricity supply.

    Some consumers in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson and Chernihiv regions are also without power due to shelling.

    Repair crews are working where the security situation allows.

    Power generation

    The repair campaign at thermal, hydro and nuclear generation facilities is ongoing. The electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is fully sufficient to meet the needs of consumers. There is no shortage.

    Consequences of the Kakhovka HPP dam blow-up

    Efforts are underway to record and eliminate the consequences of the flood caused by the dam blow-up. In Kherson, more than 800 consumers who were disconnected due to flooding have been reconnected. About 12,000 customers are still without power.

    Power engineers are working to restore power supply. Restoration work is slowed down, in particular, due to constant enemy shelling.

    Situation at the ZNPP

    There is a slight decrease in the water level in the cooling pond. It is currently at 16.38 metres. This is sufficient to meet the needs of the plant.

    Situation in the regions

    Some consumers in Dnipropetrovsk, Odesa and Sumy regions have been left without electricity due to technological disruptions.
