Two large Ukrainian thermal power plants disabled by Russian strategic aviation strike


Russian cruise missiles continue to destroy important infrastructure facilities in the Ukrainian energy system. On the afternoon of October 19, eyewitness accounts of missiles flying in a westerly direction over the Sumy and Chernivtsi regions appeared on the Web. At the same time, no work of the enemy's air defense was noticed.


Reports of hit targets were not long in coming. At least three X-101 missiles arrived at the Ladyzhynska TPP in the Vinnytsia region. Four more cruise missiles disabled Burshtynska TPP, the largest in western Ukraine. Both objects are part of the holding of the Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov.


Thus, the enemy's power system lost another 4,2 megawatts per hour. The scale of destruction and the possibility of restoring the stations are still unknown.

Both thermal power plants were put into operation in the second half of the last century and were part of the unified energy system of the south-west of the USSR. Burshtynska TPP also served as a bridge for the transmission of electricity to Romania, Hungary and Poland. Outdated coal-fired boilers created an unfavorable ecological situation in Burshtyn and its environs.
Arrivals of cruise missiles were also recorded in the Kharkov and Kyiv regions.

      And we, above Snezhny, perhaps even above the Red Beam, have contrails in the form of rings in the sky feel

      Obviously not "strategists", but someone "cut circles" yes

    Now the inhabitants will not suffer from coal ash. Ecology of the region will improve and CO2 emissions will decrease

    To hell with thieves-oligarchs! The more Ukronazi energy and auto-railroads are put out of action in order to exclude the transfer of weapons from the United States countries for the Ukronazis, the faster it will be possible to force the Ukronazis to capitulate and reduce the number of human casualties. We must continue to destroy the Ukronazi energy and transport communications!

    On a diesel engine. Will refineries work without electricity? Gas stations, railway transportation over long distances, and the tanks themselves will be problematic to bring from the west, since they don’t have their own dill tanks.

    Thus, the enemy's power system lost another 4,2 megawatts per hour.

    For reference: According to the State Enterprise National Energy Company Ukrenergo, the system operator of the United Energy System of Ukraine, at the end of 2016, the total electric capacity of Ukrainian power plants (excluding plants in Crimea) was 56 MW, of which 170 MW (or 34%) - thermal power plants.
    So, the indicated loss amounted to 0.00012 of the capacity of all thermal power plants available in Ukraine. Was it worth talking about such a success in this case? Moreover, as reported, "the scale of destruction and the possibility of restoring the stations are still unknown." Such a "drop" in information can spoil the "barrel" of the real presentation of the material. This is for the editors.

      There is an obvious typo in the text. It is enough to check the power of the listed stations on the Internet. They are quite powerful, a couple of gigawatts each.

        If there is a typo, then more than one: POWER is NOT measured in units of MW per hour. There is no such unit of measure! If we are talking specifically about the GENERATION of electric energy, as indicated in the text, then units should be used accordingly. measurement MWh. And this is a completely different thing! These kinds of typos and errors in published media reports can be likened to a tasteless and sloppy dressed person with whom you are unlikely to want to communicate. And I want to communicate with the REPORTER.

    Zaporozhye nuclear power plant is shut down.
    And this means that the South Ukrainian, Rivne and Khmelnytsky nuclear power plants should be shut down in a similar way. To smash to hell transformers, transmission lines and everything that will ensure a reliable shutdown of nuclear power plants, but without damage to the reactors.
    Boomerang must return .... to those who launched it.

    They are transported by electric traction. They are repaired by electric traction. Diesel is carried on electric traction. Workers and everyone else live in electric houses.

    the enemy's power system lost another 4,2 megawatts per hour

    One should be more attentive to the numbers (and the humanitarian education of the author of the news cannot be an excuse). The installed capacity of these TPPs is 4200 MW in total. And do not confuse energy (MWh) with power (MW). The level of publications here is quite often no higher than the plinth.

    Isn't the destruction of substations equivalent to the loss of energy capacity? Or do you count only lost balls of thread from a bombed-out apartment, from which your wife knits something? They themselves estimate losses at 30...40%.
