Ukraine’s thermal and hydro generation most affected by Russian attacks, minister says

Ukraine’s Minister of Energy German Galushchenko held a meeting today (4 April) with US Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Ukraine Bridget Brink, discussing the needs of the Ukrainian energy infrastructure, which has been damaged as a result of recent Russian attacks.

“We have managed to stabilise the situation, but the enemy continues attacks, particularly on substations,” said Minister Galushchenko. Information is currently being collected from companies regarding their needs to overcome the consequences of Russian attacks, he noted.

According to the minister, the most affected are the facilities of thermal and hydro generation. Currently, there is a need for high-voltage equipment, autotransformers, and equipment for repairs.

Ambassador Brink, in turn, noted that the United States is ready to assist in the restoration of the energy sector and preparation for the next heating season.

Both sides also discussed issues of cooperation regarding the strengthening of physical protection of energy facilities.

Additionally, they discussed measures for the decentralisation of generation before the start of the next heating season, specifically the need for the installation of additional capacities for distributed generation.
