Gas distribution to Slavyanska TPP was restored

On July 16, 2020, the Slavyanskaya TPP began to supply electricity to the IPS of Ukraine. Donetskoblgaz resumed gas distribution to the station. This was reported by the press service.

“Now the Economic Court of Donetsk region should make a decision, where the power generating company filed a lawsuit declaring that Donetskoblgaz has no claim to pay the cost of exceeding the annual ordered capacity for 2020,” the statement said.

Recall that Donbasenergo reported a threat to the cessation of production and supply of electricity to the IPS of Ukraine from Slavyanska TPP due to the fact that on July 1, 2020 PJSC Donetskoblgaz stopped the distribution of gas to Slavyanska TPP. In May 2020, Donetskoblgaz accrued to Donbasenergo the cost of exceeding the ordered annual capacity of 13 million 610.477 thousand UAH and warned that the gas supply to the Slavyanska TPP would be disconnected if the bill was not paid within 10 business days.

On July 3, 2020, in Kramatorsk, employees of PJSC Donbasenergo held a peaceful picket of the buildings of the Donetsk Regional State Administration and PJSC Donetskoblgaz.

NEURC, based on the analysis of the situation regarding the cessation of gas distribution to the Slavyanska TPP by Donetskoblgaz, indicated that Donetskoblgaz should cancel the accrued cost of exceeding the annual capacity of Donbasenergo.

Slavyanska TPP suspended its work on July 13.
