Russian uncorroborated reporting: Consequences of systemic fire destruction of Ukrainian energy system facilities.
Pridneprovska TPP – generation in Dnepropetrovsk has been significantly reduced: the millionth city has remained only on those crumbs that can be transmitted via 330kV overhead lines to substations that have not yet been damaged. A wave of shutdowns went through the city.
Damage is limited. In the near future, the TPP will continue to operate, albeit with a reduced generation capacity.
▪️Kyivskaya CHPP-6 – the power transformer of the generator-transformer unit is probably damaged.
Considering that there are only two of them at CHPP-6, the damage inflicted on the central plant is much more serious than in Dnepropetrovsk.
Presumably, the 330/110 kV autotransformer has also been destroyed.
▪️ Substation Zhytomyr 330 kV – autotransformer 330/110 kV was damaged. The possibilities for the transmission of power by the end consumer from nuclear power plants through 330 kV networks have been reduced.
The protective mechanism worked, as a result of which electricity was lost throughout Zhytomyr. Probably, the work of the substation will be restored tomorrow, the load will be transferred to the remaining autotransformers, but it is unlikely that rolling blackouts and restrictions will be avoided.
Today there were also strikes on Krivoy Rog and Ivano-Frankivsk, but there is no reliable information about the objects of fire damage.
Summing up the results of 9 days of fire damage, we come to the conclusion that the stability of the energy system of Ukraine is falling, and even single strikes on power generation and distribution facilities turn off entire regions.
The east of the country constantly suffers from power outages, even without direct impact on the power facilities located there.
