Damage to the power lines that feed the Crimea, increase the possibility of bringing to new disruptions in energy supply customers in Ukraine, said at a press conference on Sunday, Deputy General Director of NEC "Ukrenergo" Yuriy Kasich.
"very much decreased the reliability of power supply of the Kherson and Nikolaev areas. Disable one element at the substation "Kakhovskaya" increases the likelihood of bringing to the cascade development of the accident, which also will be very big trouble to the Kherson region of about 50% has the ability to be de-energized. In this case, the power supply 2 regional centers - Mykolaiv and Kherson is also very unreliable. I wish to note that the United energy system of Ukraine is built so that it is impossible to allocate separate areas, regions or settlements, and, accordingly, any disruptions to the power grid in the West or the East - it may also be due, " said Kasich.
Electricity in Crimea comes on four high-voltage transmission lines: Melitopol - Dzhankoy, Kakhovskaya - Dzhankoi, Kakhovskaya - Ostrovskaya, Kakhovka - Titanium.
on the last working day of the week in the Kherson region have been undermined by power transmission towers that supply light to the Crimea and southern regions of Ukraine. On the same day it was announced that two of the 4 lines were de-energized in the night of Sunday the remaining two transmission lines also went down. In the end, in practice, the entire Peninsula was de-energized. In addition to the repair crews arrived activists blockade of the Crimea, who want to prevent the resumption of full deliveries of electric energy to the Peninsula.
