Power outage in one of Ukraine's regions due to Russian attack: region was named
In Ukraine, a UAV attack by the terrorist country Russia caused a blackout in the Dnipropetrovs'k region . Thanks to the protective structures, significant damage was avoided, but some equipment at one of the substations was still damaged.
Industrial consumers and more than 53,000 household consumers were cut off from electricity, but now some consumers have already been restored to electricity. This was reported by the press service of Ukrenergo.
Despite the damage to the power facilities in Dnipropetrovska oblast, the capacity of Ukrenergo's high-voltage grids is sufficient to cover the existing demand.
Where are the blackouts in Ukraine?
As of this morning, 386 settlements remain without power due to the hostilities and other reasons. There are new damages due to shelling in the grids of Dnipropetrovska, Donetska, Mykolaivska, Kharkivska and Khersonska oblasts.
For technical reasons, there are outages in Kyiv and Kharkiv regions. Repairs are currently underway.
As noted, due to the warming weather, consumption is at a rather low level for winter. Yesterday, February 11, the daily maximum consumption was recorded at around 18:00. Its level was 0.4% higher than on the previous Sunday, February 4.
Today, as of 10:00 a.m., electricity consumption is 5% lower than on the previous business day, February 9.
Electricity generated by all types of power plants is sufficient to supply all legal and household consumers. No deficit is expected in the power system.
On Saturday-Sunday, repair work was completed at 2 units of nuclear power plants, and the units were returned to full capacity.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, Ukrainians can prepare for possible power outages on their own. In particular, citizens are advised to have a number of things, including power banks and burners.
