The projected balance of electricity production by the country’s nuclear fleet has decreased by 8.6% to 73.7 TWh, the company said on 30 April.
Three VVER-1000 units, Zaporozhe-2 and -6, and Rovno-3, will be taken offline. Zaporozhe-2 will be offline between 21 April and 30 June (71 days), Zaporozhe-6 between 10 May and 15 August (98 days), and Rovno-3 between 10 May and 4 August (87 days).
This will ensure the operation of other Ukrainian nuclear power plants “at a level close to nominal”, Energoatom said.
In 2019 Ukraine’s nuclear fleet provided almost 54% of the country’s electricity generation, the third highest behind France and Slovakia.
