Ukraine is prepared to offer insights into protecting and restoring energy infrastructure during times of full-scale conflict. However, this information can only be fully disclosed once victory is achieved

This was stated by Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, the chairman of the board of National Power Company "Ukrenergo", in an interview with Radio Svoboda. 

Kudrytskyi mentioned that there is significant global interest in this subject. He highlighted that during the conflict, both the General Staff and his team had to develop solutions independently. 

“Various countries and government agencies around the world have expressed interest not only in Ukraine's engineering protection solutions but also in its ability to sustain the power system amidst a full-scale war. International partners are eager to learn from Ukraine's experiences, and they eagerly await the opportunity to gain more insights after victory is secured,” he said.

While Kudrytskyi couldn't provide specific details about the enhancement of air defense for energy facilities, he emphasized that substantial efforts have been made in this regard, comparable to the construction of protective engineering structures. 

“The protection of energy facilities is a collaborative effort with Ukraine's Defense Forces, particularly those responsible for air defense. This integrated protection system encompasses both active air defense measures and passive protection through engineering fortifications,” he added. 

Regarding preparations for the upcoming heating season

On August 12, the Ministry of Energy reported that planned repairs at energy facilities across Ukraine were proceeding as scheduled. However, the most significant challenges in preparing for the heating season were observed in regions near the Russian border and in frontline areas.

On August 13, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announced that Ukraine was implementing a multi-level protection plan for energy facilities.

On August 18, it was announced that protective structures were being erected around Trypilska and Zmiivska Thermal Power Plants, which are part of Centerenergo.

By September 12, Shmyhal stated that preparations for the heating season had reached their final stages.
