Zaporizhzhia NPP and the Enerhodar city are still under the control of Russian military units.
The current state of the power units remains unchanged: two units are in operation; two units are under repair; the rest are in the shutdown mode. Unit 1 outage and emergency repair of unit 6 transformer continue in the scope and using means currently available at the ZNPP in the conditions of the territory occupation by the enemy.
Two 750 kV high-voltage lines (Zaporizhzhia and South-Donbas) are still not connected, measures are being taken to restore the operability of damaged high-voltage lines. This issue is complicated by active hostilities in the areas of the lines damage.
Independent regulatory oversight over nuclear and radiation safety directly at the ZNPP site is currently not carried out due to the potential danger to life and health of the SNRIU state inspectors, as well as due to the damage to inspectors' workplaces as a result of shelling and seizure of the Zaporizhzhia NPP by the occupiers. At the same time, the SNRIU continues to remain in constant contact with the ZNPP.
According to information received from the ZNPP:
- operational personnel monitor the state of power units and ensure their safe operation in accordance with the requirements of the operating procedures;
- the rotation of both operational and day-time personnel is carried out;
- the ZNPP personnel continues carrying out walkdowns to detect and dispose of hazardous items that appeared on the site during the shelling and capture of the Zaporizhzhia NPP by Russian troops;
- the NPP automated radiation monitoring system and the automated radiation situation monitoring system for the control and observation areas operate in regular mode; no changes in the radiological situation at the NPP site or in the control area and observation area have been registered.
The official website of the Zaporizhzhia NPP is still not functional, which does not allow the public to obtain data on NPP safety indicators.
In addition, the ZNPP confirmed the information on the presence on the site of at least 11 representatives of the State Atomic Energy Corporation of the Russian Federation “Rosatom”. According to the personnel of the operating organization, the above individuals do not yet interfere in the operation process of nuclear facilities, the NPP management and operation are carried out exclusively by the ZNPP personnel. The ZNPP personnel also categorically deny the information that is currently being actively disseminated in the mass media on the transition of the ZNPP into the ownership of the “Rosatom” Corporation.
