On Friday evening, the Zaporizhzhya TPP included power unit No. 2 into the energy system of Ukraine. According to the press service of DTEK Energy, the load is being increased. Thus, today the Zaporizhzhya TPP operates with three power units (2,3,4) with a capacity of 550 MW.
In addition, Zaporizhzhya TPP turned on a power unit to compensate for the capacity of power unit No. 1, which was stopped for short-term repairs. As soon as the power engineers eliminate the deficiencies at power unit No. 1, it will be ready to work in the energy system of Ukraine, Rinat Akhmetov's energy holding noted.
