Emergency Shutdown of Unit Occurs at South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant
The first unit of the South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant was shut down on June 27 due to technical reasons, the company "Ukrhydroenergy" announced in their Telegram channel on Monday.
"Due to technical reasons, an emergency shutdown of the first unit of the South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant occurred on June 27. We have utilized all available maneuvering capacities to compensate for the lost energy in the integrated power system," the company's message stated.
Earlier, "Ukrenergo" reported that on June 27, due to a lack of overall capacity from Ukrainian power plants to meet the evening energy consumption, the power system received emergency assistance from Romania and Poland. The assistance was requested to address the power deficit caused by the shutdown of one of the nuclear units.
The South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant is located in the Nikolaev region of Ukraine and is part of "Energoatom," forming a part of the South Ukrainian Energy Complex.
