SITUATION IN THE FRONTLINE REGIONS
Yesterday, a shelling damaged equipment at a thermal power plant in Donetsk region. Three coal mines and 7,500 consumers were left without power supply.
All of them have been reconnected.
In addition, the enemy launched a missile attack on another mine in Donetsk region. No people were injured, the equipment was damaged and the mine is currently out of operation.
Some consumers in Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson and Chernihiv regions are also without electricity.
Repair crews are working where the security situation allows. In total, power engineers have reconnected 14,000 consumers over the past day. Most of them are customers in Donetsk and Dnipropetrovsk regions.
The electricity generated by Ukrainian power plants is sufficient to meet the needs of consumers.
Power engineers continue to prepare the power system for the heating season. A large-scale repair campaign is underway at thermal, hydro and nuclear generation facilities. In particular, a hydroelectric unit at a pumped storage power plant that was damaged during shelling last winter has been put under emergency repair due to an equipment malfunction.
