NPC Ukrenergo reported that the situation with the accumulation of coal in the warehouses of TPPs is improving. In particular, over the past 10 days, coal supplies amounted to 54.8 thousand tons, while consumption - 47.5 thousand tons. However, coal reserves in TPP warehouses remain extremely low.
As of the morning of September 13, there were 812.8 thousand tons of coal in the TPP's warehouses, which is 10.1% more than on the morning of September 1 (738.3 thousand tons). In particular, the reserves of gas coal increased by 17.5% to 586.4 thousand tons, while the volumes of anthracite coal, on the contrary, decreased by 5.4% to 226.4 thousand tons.
In addition, in accordance with the fuel accumulation schedule approved by the Ministry of Energy, there is 2.4 times less coal in the TPP warehouses than it should be on September 13.
Last week, the production of TPPs compared with the previous week decreased by 4% to 564.2 million kWh. This decline in production is primarily due to a decrease in consumption (-1.5% compared to the previous week) and electricity exports (-22.4%).
At the same time, on weekdays, the average daily production amounted to 82.8 million kWh, and on weekends, 75 million kWh. The share of TPPs in covering the load as compared to the previous week did not change and amounted to 22%.
On the morning of September 13, 4 units of thermal power plants and thermal power plants with a capacity of 0.9 GW were in emergency repair, at the request of manufacturers. In addition, due to lack of fuel, 19 units of TPPs and CHPPs with a capacity of 7.2 GW cannot operate.
