Last line connecting ZNPP to energy system of Ukraine cut off

Quote: "Today, 5 September, 2022, as a result of the fire that occurred due to shelling, the 330 kW ZTPP-Ferro-alloy power line was disconnected, that is, the last line that connected the ZNPP/ZTPP node with the energy system of Ukraine!

As a result, the 6th power unit was unloaded and disconnected from the grid, which currently supplies the ZNPP's own needs."

Details: Energoatom notes that over the past three days, Russian occupying forces have been fiercely shelling the area around the ZNPP.

As a result, the 750 kW ZNPP – Dniprovska, 330 kW ZTPP – Kakhovska and 330 kW ZTPP – Melitopol power lines were damaged and disconnected. The 750/330 kW JSC ZNPP was damaged.

Other power lines of the ZNPP/ZTPP complex were damaged earlier.

Background: This is the second time in history that the ZNPP has been shut down. The first time was on 25 August.
