Germany to donate another shipment of generators to Ukraine
MOSCOW. Feb 8 (Interfax) - The German government will donate over 700 generators to Ukraine to ease the energy crisis there, and 41 of these generators should be transferred to food producers.
Seven Ukrainian bakeries have received German generators, whose capacity varies from 450 to 550 KWt, Ukrainian media reported with reference to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), which is involved in the delivery of generators to Ukraine and their distribution around the country.
Odessa Bakery No. 4 on Tuesday received one of the German generators provided by the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) with financial support from the German Foreign Office. The generators were distributed by the FAO and the Ukrainian Agrarian Policy and Food Ministry.
As reported earlier, Germany delivered the first ten heavy-duty power generators with capacity of 450 KWt and more to a warehouse in Ukraine on January 10, from where they are to be distributed among food producers.
Germany plans to donate in total over 700 generators to support the Ukrainian power supply system, and at least 25 of them were to be provided to Ukrainian food producers in January.
