Most of Kiev region to have unlimited power supply on Friday - DTEK

MOSCOW. Feb 9 (Interfax) - Power consumption limits are to be lifted in the Kiev region on Friday, February 10, to measure actual power consumption there, Ukrainian media have reported with reference to the DTEK power supply company.

It is expected that no stabilizing or emergency power outages will be applied in nearly all of the region's territory except for parts of the Bucha, Fastov, and Obukhov districts on Friday.

Significant damage caused to the equipment makes it impossible to supply unlimited amounts of electricity in those regions, and therefore, outages are possible at peak consumption hours in line with the schedules, it said.

DTEK also warned about possible blackouts in said areas due to local disruptions or stabilizing outages.

As reported earlier, the national power grid operator Ukrenergo announced it would fully lift consumption limits in all regions for one day over the period from February 8 to 20 to measure actual consumption in them.
