United States has provided Ukraine with two powerful autotransformers

The United States has provided Ukraine with two new powerful autotransformers that will operate in the Ukrainian grid and increase the reliability of energy supply to consumers in winter, NPC Ukrenergo reported.

“We sincerely thank the US government, the US Embassy in Ukraine and the USAID Energy Security Project for their assistance in the purchase and delivery of key equipment necessary for the Ukrainian energy infrastructure during the period of high winter loads,” the system operator wrote on its Facebook page on Friday.

“While Russia is sending missiles and drones at Ukraine’s power system, the United States is helping to keep it up and running. Together with Ukrenergo, this week we delivered two autotransformers to support the people of Ukraine this winter,” US Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink wrote on social networking site X.
