From the beginning of the full-scale invasion of russian federation, the energy infrastructure of Ukraine was affected by significant damages and ruin due to massive attacks. In particular, thousands of kilometers of overhead power lines and hundreds of electric energy objects have been hit.
To ensure prompt restoration and provide a reliable and high-quality power supply to consumers, commissions are set up in the regions to inspect damaged power grid facilities or their components. Representatives of the State Energy Supervision Service are actively involved in the work of the commissions. Currently, 60 specialists of the agency are involved in inspections.
Thus, since 1 January 2023, representatives of the territorial bodies of the State Inspectorate for Energy Supervision as part of the relevant commissions have already inspected 1,135 damaged facilities.
In total, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, 2,711 inspections of damaged power grid facilities or their components have been carried out by 17 distribution system operators. Most of the facilities were inspected in Kyiv (1,033), Sumy (767), Mykolaiv (370), and Kharkiv (159) regions.
As of 26 July, the commissions had drawn up more than 2.5 thousand defect reports, with another 136 pending approval.
It should be pointed out, that analysis of defective deeds made after the results of such inspections gives the opportunity for effective planning of recovery works and attract donor’s financing. To receive and distribute energy equipment from international partners as humanitarian aid.
