As of 10.00, 2 units of the Zaporizhzhia NPP (ZNPP) are connected to the grid. One unit is under preventive maintenance and the others are shut down.
On 6 March 2022 at 16:06, the 750 kV high-voltage line was damaged and thus disconnected in the area of Vasylivka, Zaporizhia region, during fierce fighting.
According to management of ZNPP, which is under control of Russian troops, operational personnel monitor the condition of the power units and ensure their safe operation in accordance with the requirements of the operating procedures.
The automated radiation monitoring system for the NPP and the automated radiation monitoring systems for the control and observation areas operate in normal mode; no changes in the radiological situation at the NPP site or in the control area and observation area have been recorded. Since the Zaporizhzhia NPP website does not currently work, information on the radiological situation at the NPP site and in the control and observation areas that is posted in real time is not available to the public.
The presence of armed enemy troops and heavy equipment on the territory of the Zaporizhzhia NPP and in Energodar creates psychological pressure on both NPP personnel and the population.
There are interruptions with mobile connection in the town, most internet providers do not work and there are food problems. All this has a negative impact on the emotional condition of the NPP staff and significantly affects the assurance of NPP nuclear and radiation safety.
