A hydroelectric unit at one of the hydroelectric power plants with a capacity of over 300 MW has come out of scheduled maintenance.
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, which will take place in the face of russian attacks. A large-scale repair campaign is underway at thermal, hydro and nuclear generation facilities.
