  • Situation in energy system on 8 June
    Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, posted 08 June 2023 13:14

    Hydro generation facilities increased electricity production by a third over the day, with 182 transformer substations flooded and damaged in Kherson and the region.

    Over the past day, Ukraine’s hydroelectric power plants and pumped storage plants generated 30% more electricity than forecast. Experts from the Ministry of Energy and Ukrhydroenergo are currently working on an optimised model for the operation of the Dnipro cascade HPPs to reduce the volume of water and, consequently, the flooding caused by the dam at Kakhovka HPP.

    Power engineers in Kherson and Mykolaiv regions continue to record the consequences of the occupiers’ blowing up of the Kakhovka HPP and the resulting flood.

    In Kherson, 129 transformer substations remain flooded and damaged.

    Outside the regional centre, 53 substations are flooded on the territory of Ukrainian-controlled Kherson region and 4 settlements are cut off from electricity. More than 20,000 consumers are without electricity. Flooding is also reported in Mykolaiv region, with 8 settlements without power.

    At the same time, water levels are gradually falling in Kherson. Power engineers have already started to restore power where possible.

    As of this morning, 64 households have had power restored. Kherson CHPP is outside the flood risk zone.

    The situation at the occupied ZNPP is being constantly monitored by Energoatom experts. There is no direct threat to the occupied plant as a result of the Kakhovka HPP blast.

    Enemy terror continues in the frontline and border areas with russia. In Donetsk region, 10 settlements are without electricity due to the fighting.

    Some consumers in Zaporizhzhia, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson, and Chernihiv regions are also without power as a result of earlier shelling.

    Despite all the challenges, the country’s energy system is stable. Generation fully covers consumption.

    The volume of gas in the storage facilities increased by 21.3 million cubic metres per day. Natural gas reserves exceed 9.7 billion cubic metres.
