Ukrenergo approved a decision to cancel the planned repair works on the overhead line (OHL) 220 kV Luhanska TPP – Lysychanska scheduled for June 15-19.
This was caused by the following.
Under the current conditions, the capacity balance of Luhanskyi power center is ensured by a single power unit at Luhanska TPP. However, as the record shows, the operation with such a minimal composition is not stable, and it is extremely difficult to ensure the flows via 110 kV power transmission lines connecting Luhansk region with the rest of the territory of Ukraine.
In this regard, Ukrenergo is now considering a possibility of performing the mentioned planned repair works in order to prepare for the autumn-winter period on OHL 220 kV Luhanska TPP – Lysychanska during a period when balancing conditions will allow ensuring the plant’s operation with at least two power units. This can happen approximately in October 2018.
