SE NNEGC Energoatom reports that today, February 15, at 9:31 a.m., power unit No.2 of Khmelnytskyi nuclear power plant was connected to the IPS of Ukraine after the completion of the repair campaign.
"This gives an additional 1000 MW to the power system," said Head of NNEGC Energoatom Petro Kotin. “We hope that this will solve all the issues of meeting Ukraine's needs for electricity in the winter.”
The additional capacity of 1000 MW is exactly the amount of electricity that will allow, at a critical load on the IPS of Ukraine in winter, to refuse to import electricity from Russia, which the country was forced to resort to due to a shortage of coal and emergency repairs at thermal power plants in Ukraine.
To recap, Centrenergo will not pay a fine for exceeding the ordered capacity when supplying gas to TPPs.
As reported, Energoatom officially commented on the information about the searches of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine in its office.
