No scheduled power outages planned in Ukraine for Tuesday

MOSCOW. Feb 28 (Interfax) - February 28 is expected to be the 17th day in a row with no scheduled power outages planned in Ukraine, as the national power grid operator Ukrenergo has not set any consumption limits, Ukrainian media reported with reference to regional power distribution operators on Tuesday.

"No restrictions and hourly outages in the Khmelnitsky region on Tuesday. Ukrenergo has not applied restrictions and limits for two weeks in a row," Ukrainian media have quoted the Khmelnitsky regional power operator as saying on its social account.

The Sumy, Zaporozhye, Poltava, Chernovtsy, and Volyn regional power operators, as well as the DTEK power company supplying energy to the city of Kiev and the Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, and Odessa regions, have also said on social media that no power consumption limits were set for February 28.

At the same time, DTEK said engineers were working to resume power supply to households in the city of Odessa and the surrounding area following an earlier accident that disabled Ukrenergo's equipment.

DTEK also warned that, because of damage caused to Ukrenergo's grids, scheduled outages are possible in some local power systems if consumption grows.
