As the 2023-2024 heating season approaches, Ukraine’s Mykolaiv CHP has been equipped with five emergency vehicles provided by the Ukraine Energy Support Fund. Located near key conflict zones, these vehicles are poised to ensure uninterrupted heat and power supply in the face of increasing threats.
Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the emergency vehicles will empower the Mykolaiv CHP's emergency workers to rapidly address network disruptions, ensuring consistent heat and energy distribution.This support addresses critical needs in the city of Mykolaiv and the wider Mykolaiv region. The area has experienced significant damage to its heating networks and transportation infrastructure due to recurring shelling. Moreover, equipment failures during emergency power outages, resulting from shelling and excessive voltage fluctuations in the power grid, have significantly added to the challenges faced by the community.
Dmitriy Miroshnichenko, the Director of Mykolaiv CHP, emphasized the significance of the new equipment. “This machinery is vital for urgent repairs of infrastructure damaged by attacks and for prompt response to potential missile strikes. Beyond Mykolaiv CHP's operations, it will play a central role in restoring electricity and heat to the wider Mykolaiv community. I am profoundly grateful."
The Ukraine Energy Support Fund was established with the objective of providing financial assistance to repair Ukraine’s critical energy infrastructure damaged by Russian attacks and ensuring the continued functionality of the energy sector. It is managed by the Energy Community Secretariat, with contributions from governments, international organizations, and corporate donors.
