September 11 at 03:41 local time, the last remaining in operation, the 6th power unit of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant (NPP) was disconnected from the power grid. According to the State Enterprise "NAEK" Energoatom ", preparations are underway for its cooling and transfer to a cold state.
As Energoatom notes, for the last three days, power unit No. 6 has been operating at low power (from 114 to 140 MW) exclusively to meet the needs of the Zaporozhye NPP. The power supply of the station was transferred to diesel generators to support technological processes.
According to the pro-Russian authorities in the region, a new launch of the Zaporozhye NPP is possible after the shelling stops and the front line moves away.
September 3 The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that the Zaporizhia NPP was disconnected from the last remaining main transmission line and is using a backup line.
September 8, after a visit to the nuclear power plant, IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi suggested that Russia and Ukraine conclude an agreement on the inviolability of the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
