In the Kharkiv region, 10,000 customers were cut off as a result of the shelling, and two wind farms were temporarily unloaded in the Mykolaiv region. Some subscribers in the Donetsk, Zaporizhia, Sumy, Kherson, Chernihiv, and Dnipro Region remain without electricity. Repair teams work where the security situation allows.
This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Energy on the morning of August 26.
“During the night, as a result of shelling in the Kharkiv region, a 110 kV power line was destroyed, 34 settlements were cut off, and almost 10,000 consumers were left without power. The shelling also damaged a gas pipeline, leading to supply constraints for subscribers.
In the Mykolaiv region, birds got into power lines, which caused a short-term outage of two 150 kV overhead power lines. At the same time, two 150 kV power substations were shut down, and therefore two wind farms were relieved. The department noted that the grid and wind turbines had been restored.
“Energy engineers continue to prepare the power system for the heating season that may occur in the conditions of Russian attacks. A large-scale repair operation of the heating, water and nuclear generation facilities is underway,” added the Ministry of Energy.
In Kherson, about 10,300 consumers remain without power after the flood. Power engineers are working to restore power, but repair work has been slowed by shelling.
A slight decrease in the water level in the ZNPP cooling pond was observed. Currently, it is 16.11 m. This is enough for the needs of the station.
