End to blackout: power supply to Crimea resumed

Yesterday, the repair brigades connected the transmission line Kakhovska-Titan to the power grid of Ukraine and resumed the electricity transfer to Crimea

On 00:08 of Tuesday the power supply was resumed on the line to Crimea, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to the site of the company.

At 0:08 on December 8, the 220 kV line Kakhovska-Titan was charged with electricity. The load on the transmission line as of 8:00 am was 120 mW. The 200 mW load limit was fixed.

As of 12:25 all 35 kV substations of Khersonoblenergo, which provides the consumers of Chaplynka and Kalanchak districts of Kherson region, were connected by the normal scheme of power from the 220 kV Titan substation.

Vsevolod Kovalchuk, the acting director of NEC Ukrenergo said on TV: “Kakhovska- Titan is only one of the four transmission lines, which transfer the electricity from Kherson region to Crimea, which was blacked out on the night of November 22. After restoring and connecting the 220 kV line Kakhovska-Titan to the power grip, the normal scheme of power supply will return in two districts of Kherson region. After the break down of the line, they were powered through the back-up scheme, which was not sufficiently reliable.”

At the same time, the head of Russian government in Crimea Sergey Aksyonov said yesterday, that the peninsula would refuse the electric power supply from Ukraine.
