Ukrenergo has canceled the planned repairs of the 220 kV Luhansk TPP-Lysychansk power grid scheduled for June 15-19, the company’s press service has reported.
According to its data, in the current situation the Luhansk energy center’s power balance is ensured by the operation of only one unit at Luhansk thermal power plant (TPP).
“The work with such a minimum composition of equipment is unstable and it is very difficult to properly provide for overflows with 110 kV lines that connect Luhansk region with the rest of Ukraine,” the company noted.
In this regard, Ukrenergo is considering the possibility of carrying out scheduled repairs at the Luhansk TPP-Lysychansk transmission line to prepare for the autumn-winter season during a period when the balance sheet conditions will allow the station to operate with at least two blocks. The approximate date of repairs is October 2018.
