“DTEK has connected all the power units of its thermal power plants, working on Zh brand coal, and put off all the repairs to ensure the reliable operation of the power grids. Combustion of additional volume of Zh brand coal will also help reduce the effects of the accident on coal enterprises. All the commands of the grid operator – the national power company Ukrenergo are fully implemented,” the press service quoted Director for Business Operations at DTEK Andriy Favorov as saying.
