The largest energy company of Ukraine “Centrenergo” was not ready for winter


Kyiv, 5 October. The largest energy company in Ukraine “Centrenergo” was not ready for the winter heating season. This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to the director of the Energy Research Center Alexander Kharchenko.

According to the expert, the readiness of the Centerenergo’s capacities causes a “sad smile” in the majority of power engineers. Many stations simply may not work through the next heating season.

“Centrenergo is now far beyond good and evil. The ability of the company’s stations to work through the season raises very serious concerns. All hope is on DTEK (The largest private investor in the energy industry of Ukraine – Ed.), This hope is usually happily used, ”said Kharchenko.

According to him, Energoatom also turned out to be unprepared for the upcoming heating season, which is why the company is forced to burn more coal than it should. The situation is getting worse daily. At this rate, the country may be left without coal at the height of the heating season.

“For the last weeks, out of the remaining nine blocks, at least one block has been standing, and another one has been operating at a maximum of 50% of capacity. 12-15 thousand tons of coal is spent daily because Energoatom did not prepare the blocks for the heating season in time. If this were not the case, the problem of coal would not exist in principle now, ”the expert notes.

Recall that earlier the Minister for the Development of Communities and Territories of Ukraine Oleksiy Chernyshov warned that this winter would be “super difficult”. The Cabinet is already considering the option of reducing the minimum temperature in apartments from 20 to 16 degrees. According to the head of Naftogaz, Yuriy Vitrenko, Ukraine lacks $10 billion to get through the heating season. In this regard, he asked all Ukrainians to stock up on warm clothes.
