N-power plants back online: Kyiv – Times of India


All three nuclear power plants under Ukrainian control are back online and will soon be producing energy at normal capacity, the head of the national energy utility said on Friday, two days after Russian missile strikes that forced utility crews to scramble to stabilise the country’s crippled energy grid. Ukraine typically relies on nuclear power for more than half of its energy, an uncommonly high rate of dependence.
“Now the energy system is fully integrated; all regions are connected,” said Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, chief executive of Ukrenergo, the national utility. He added that utility crews are prepared to react to further Russian attacks but urged consumers to save electricity. On Friday morning, electricity had been restored to meet about 70% of the country’s needs, but rolling blackouts remained in place, Ukrenergo said in a statement, adding that priority was given to critical infrastructure facilities and efforts to reconnect household consumers were on.
