The 750 kV aerial power line Zaporizhzhia NPP - Kakhovska substation was put into operation

On November 24, 2020 at 02:10 the fourth 750 kV aerial power line Zaporizhzhia NPP - Kakhovska substation was put into operation.

This is a large-scale project that is important for increasing the reliability of Zaporizhzhia NPP in terms of power output. Now six power units of ZNPP, SE “NNEGC “Energoatom”, will operate without reduction of generation. This is approximately 700 MW per hour and 17 million kWh of electricity per day. These are significant figures for the economy of Ukraine and for the power-generation sector the country.
