The Cabinet of Ministers is considering the issue of possible increase in capacities of Ukrainian nuclear power plants aimed to secure the domestic energy production and export electricity. 

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman stated this during Government Question Hour meeting held in Parliament on Friday, October 20, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“In the scope of the implementation of the approved Energy Strategy until 2035, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has been vigorously working on the issue of increasing capacities of Ukrainian nuclear power plants aimed to secure the domestic energy production and export electricity,” the prime minister said.

Groysman reminded that large agreements on NPP equipment modernization projects worth UAH 5 billion were signed with American partners in Kharkiv in September.

"We are working on the EU Energy Bridge [EU-Ukraine project]. I think that from 2021 we will have chance to launch units construction. This is our plan, we have focused on that, we apply every effort to ensure safety of the nuclear power industry and availability of facilities to satisfy the domestic needs and to switch to electricity exports," said Volodymyr Groysman.
