Actions of invaders caused disconnection of ZNPP from power grid
The State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine reported this on Telegram, according to Ukrinform.
"According to the information provided by SE NEGC Energoatom, an operating organization, as of August 25, 2022 at 12:12, as a result of hostilities near the Zaporizhzhia NPP, the 750 kV ‘Dniprovska’ overhead line was disconnected," the report reads.
As a result, power unit No. 5 of the ZNPP was disconnected from the network, with the further activation of emergency protection; power unit No. 6 of the ZNPP was transferred “to supply its own needs”.
The regulator adds that at 12:29, after the resumption of the operational capacity of the 750 kV ‘Dniprovska’ overhead line, power unit No. 6 of the ZNPP was connected to the network.
However, at 14:14, the 750 kV ‘Dniprovska’ overhead line was disconnected again.
As a result, power unit No. 6 of the ZNPP was disconnected from the network, with “the subsequent tripping of the emergency protection”.
According to Energoatom, thus, the actions of the invaders caused a complete disconnection of the ZNPP from Ukraine’s power grid – the first in the history of the plant.
"The NPP's own needs for power supply are currently provided from the energy system of Ukraine through the communication line of the Zaporizhzhia NPP – Zaporizhzhia TPP,” the report says.
