The terrorist country of Russia shelled Ukraine's energy facilities on the night of March 31. The city of Odesa was cut off from electricity, and blackouts were also applied in Kryvyi Rih, Kharkiv region. However, as of 11:10 a.m., power was restored to consumers.

This was reported by the press service of Ukrenergo on March 31. At night, the enemy attacked the infrastructure of Odesa region again. Due to damage to a Ukrenergo energy facility, 170,000 homes were cut off from electricity, DTEK reports.

In addition, at 11:40 a.m., an emergency shutdown of equipment at one of the high-voltage substations occurred. Residents of Khadzhibey and Kyiv districts, as well as part of Odesa district of the region, were temporarily left without electricity. The estimated time of power restoration is within a few hours, the company added.

The situation in the power system remains difficult. Solar and wind power plants and the suspension of electric transport in Odesa are helping to avoid massive blackouts.

In addition, power engineers have managed to stabilize the situation in Donetsk and Dnipropetrovsk regions. All homes have electricity again

As consumption grows, the volume may increase. The occupiers targeted Ukrenergo's high-voltage substations in the southern region.

No blackout schedules were applied at night. However, due to the increase in consumption and, accordingly, the load on the power system, outages are possible during the day, especially during the evening peak hours. The company urged citizens to consume electricity sparingly.

As reported, the Ministry of Energy said yesterday that Khmelnytsky NPP's power unit was connected to the grid after repairs. This was two weeks ahead of schedule.

"In addition, in the evening of March 30, emergency blackout schedules were applied in Donetsk, Dnipropetrovs'k, Sumy, and Poltava regions at the command of the dispatcher of NPC Ukrenergo.

The reason is network restrictions on the transmission system operator's main lines to prevent overloading of the cross-sections," the statement said.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, as a result of Russian strikes on Ukraine's power system in March, 80% of DTEK's thermal generating capacity, which was available before the largest attack on the power system on March 22, was damaged or destroyed. 5 out of 6 TPPs were damaged, some units were almost completely destroyed.
