DTEK repairs 15% of power units as part of preparations for fall-winter period

MOSCOW. June 2 (Interfax) - The DTEK power holding has already repaired four power units at its thermal power plants by the beginning of June as part of preparations for the 2023/2024 fall-winter period, which makes up 15% of the total number of power units intended for repair.

A total of 27 power units are to be repaired as part of the repair campaign in 2023, Ukrainian media outlets said, citing the holding's pages on social networks on Friday.

"Four of them have already been repaired, and another nine are undergoing [repairs]," DTEK said. The company's investments into repairs of thermal power plants increased by a third in half a month in comparison with the figures recorded on May 17, reaching 1.2 billion hryvni.

As reported, DTEK said mid-May that it had prepared two power units at thermal power plants for the 2023/2024 fall-winter season, and another seven power units were at various stages of repairs. "The company invested over 890 million hryvni into repair of thermal power units since the beginning of 2023," the power holding said.

DTEK needs about seven million hryvni to completely repair the damaged equipment of thermal power plants.
