Ukraine Energy Support Fund progressing at ‘fast pace,’ Energy Community says

Around 3.6 million euros of international donations from the Ukraine Energy Support Fund were spent on critical energy infrastructure repairs in the first quarter of 2023, the Fund’s fiduciary Energy Community Secretariat announced yesterday (10 May).

During this period, the Fund procured welding machines, circuit breakers, 12 current transformers and wires, among other essential items. Procurements worth 119.2 million euros are also at an advanced stage of the procedure, with items such as power transformers, vehicle lifts, circuit breakers, switches, disconnectors, surge arresters, batteries, mobile cranes, steam turbines and excavators being considered for procurement, the Secretariat said.

In March, the Fund provided financial assistance to the Ukrainian Gas Transmission System Operator (GTSOU) in completing the renovation of a gas compressor station.

“These procurements have been instrumental in ensuring the stability and functioning of the energy infrastructure in Ukraine,” the Secretariat said via a press release.
