From January 1, 2020, part of the staff of Zaporizhzhia will experience lie time due to an unfavorable situation on the electricity market. This was reported by Ukrinform with reference to the press service of DTEK.
“Since January 1, DTEK Energo has been forced to withdraw to a simple part of the personnel of Zaporizhzhia TPP. The reason is the unfavorable situation on the electricity market. TPP continues to operate with a minimum staff. Partial staff downtime will not affect the energy and heat supply of the regions. Now on the electricity market there are conditions under which domestic generation is forced to work at a loss. This is due to the import of electricity and low price caps – an artificial price limit set on the electricity market”, the report said.
At Zaporizhzhia TPP, 1 out of 4 pulverized coal blocks remains in operation. At the station, they are ready to include additional blocks in the work, if necessary.
Earlier it was reported that electricity production was reduced at Burshtyn TPP, the station went into idle mode.
