No nuclear power plants in Ukraine are generating power for Ukraine's grid

Emergency protection measures at the Rivne, Pivdennoukrainska, and Khmelnytskyi nuclear power plants were triggered due to a decrease in the frequency in Ukraine’s power system; as a result of this, all power units at these power plants have automatically shut down.

Quote: "The [power plants] are currently operating in an [emergency] mode, without generating power for the national power grid. Radiation background on the grounds of the nuclear power plants and their adjacent territories has not changed, all indicators are normal."


Details: Energoatom reported that once Ukraine’s power grid stabilises, these power plants will resume supplying power.

Reduced frequency has also led to the disconnection of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) from Ukraine’s power grid. The plant has entered a complete blackout. All diesel generators have been activated.

Radiation levels at the Zaporizhzhia NPP remain stable.

Previously: All power units at the Pivdennoukrainska NPP in Mykolaiv Oblast have been shut down.

Power units at the Khmelnytskyi NPP have also shut down as a result of Russian attacks on Wednesday, 23 November.
