Nuclear power plant Chernobyl disconnected - Urgent action required

8 March 2022

The Secretariat is very concerned regarding the news about the decommissioned nuclear power plant Chernobyl being disconnected from the electricity network and hence staying without electricity supply, as reported today by the transmission system operator of Ukraine, Ukrenergo. A secure power supply is of the utmost importance for cooling radioactive waste in this power plant. Against this background, the Secretariat appreciates the efforts currently made by ENTSO-E to connect the Ukrainian power system as soon as possible with the one of Continental Europe.
