Yesterday, March 13 the Ukrenergo team repaired a high-voltage power line that supplies the Chornobyl NPP and the city of Slavutych. At 19:07 Ukrenergo started to feed the line to restore the infrastructure of Chornobyl NPP and the city of Slavutych.
However, before the power supply was fully restored, the occupying forces damaged it again. The repair crew of NEC Ukrenergo should head to the occupied territory near the Chernobyl nuclear power plant again, to find and repair new damage to the line.
Ukrenergo emphasizes that the Chornobyl NPP is an important facility that cannot be left without a reliable energy supply. The power supply of Slavutych residents also depends on the power lines of the nuclear power plant. Therefore, unimpeded and quick access of Ukrenergo repair crews to these lines for inspections and repairs is extremely important not only for Ukrainian consumers but also for Europe as a whole.
A stable power supply will help avoid a repeat of the Chernobyl disaster and save the lives and health of people who might be affected.
