    On Jan 25, Ukrhydroenergo boosts electricity generation 3.6-fold to offset retired NPP capacity

    January 27, 2022 - Interfax Ukraine Business Newswire


      KYIV. Jan 27 (Interfax-Ukraine) - PrJSC Ukrhydroenergo on January 25 increased electricity production by 3.6 times, to 53 million kWh per day, compensating for the capacity of two stopped power units of nuclear power plants (NPPs).

      According to a press release from Ukrhydroenergo, hydroelectric power plants and pumped storage power plants provided a mobile emergency reserve in the Integrated Power System (IPS) of Ukraine. The bulk of additional electricity generation was provided by Dnipro Hydroelectric Power Plant, Kremenchuk Hydroelectric Power Plant and Dniester Pumped Storage Power Plant. Also, the planned indicators were exceeded at Kyiv HPP and Dniester HPP.

      "The difficult operation mode of the power system once again emphasized the exceptional role of the highly maneuverable capacities of hydroelectric power plants and pumped storage power plants in balancing and ensuring the reliability of electricity supplies to the IPS of Ukraine. After all, it is hydropower that can provide a quick start during emergency situations," Ihor Syrota, Director General of Ukrhydroenergo, said.

      As reported, due to the disconnection of two NPP units from the grid on January 25, coal stocks at warehouses of thermal power plants of Ukrainian generating companies decreased by 3.6% (by 25,700 tonnes) last Tuesday, to 688,100 tonnes.
