Head of Ukrenergo: Soviet-style equipment is needed to restore Ukraine's energy infrastructure

The head of the National Energy Company (NEC) "Ukrenergo" Volodymyr Kudrytsky said in an interview with the British newspaper Financial Times that Soviet-style equipment is needed to restore Ukraine's infrastructure. As the official specified, the problem with the shortage of 750 kV transformers, each of which weighs up to 200 tons, is especially acute.


Most of Ukraine's electricity grid uses the old Soviet system. Their voltage is higher than on EU systems, which is incompatible with most Western equipment.

- says the publication.

While the equipment to rebuild the country's energy infrastructure has already been sourced from former Soviet republics such as Lithuania, a massive amount of work is required to rebuild most of the destroyed transformers.

Vladimir Kudritsky:

During the first 8 months of the war, the scale of the destruction of the energy infrastructure of Ukraine was not felt so seriously due to the fact that the country had a stock of transformers, but right now, more than ever, we are in dire need of them

Recall that Russia is a high-precision weapons has been attacking critical civilian infrastructure in Ukraine since October 10 last year, in response to the terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge, behind which the Ukrainian special services stand. Not so long ago, Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky announced that about 50% of the total number of all energy facilities in the country had been destroyed.

      Maidan stood for everything European - and here is Soviet equipment !!! Monuments to Lenin were brought down - they rejoiced - but as it turned out, Lenin launched a counterattack, from which it darkened in Ukraine and not only in the eyes! As they say - do not shoot history with a gun, otherwise history will shoot a gun ...

        If Ukraine needs Soviet transformers, let them buy them in the USSR. What is the problem? Let the walkers be sent to Lenin. laughing
        He will instantly send them to Bandera. am

      Either another Ukrainian beggar asks for the next tranche from the EU and, if possible, in cash, or he wants to pity Russia and get equipment for dorma, according to old memory

      I hope that both the EU and Russia will understand that since they found money for the demolition of the monument to Catherine and Suvorov in Ukraine, they will find it in their wide trousers and for Soviet-style equipment. tongue

    But what about de-Sovietization with de-communization? What, didn't you go there again?

    Yes, there are analogues of Soviet equipment in the West, but who will give it? "Balalaikas" weighing 200 tons are not scattered so easily (for nothing) ....., there are none, neither sausage nor pasta, everything is in private hands, i.e. they need to be bought from the business for the money of their taxpayers and donated to the outskirts ...., and not even an hour will be calibrated again ...

    The aggressor country gives Ukraine 900 MW of electricity every day so that the Internet works, computers and people can express whatever they think about the aggressor country.

    Restoration is exactly what you need...
    For conversion to imported equipment, this is ... in the current conditions, this is unrealistic.

    As with weapons, Soviet free, the USSR did everything with a multiple supply, after all, socialism, and not the bestial stingy grin of capitalism. The Western will put only a lope of money and still need to be attached to the system.

    Again power in kV. The equipment is unique, by the way, we have large 150/35/10 kV transformers manufactured in Zaporizhzhia put into operation in the 80s, where to get new ones, or it is unknown ....

    Drug addict?
    The system created in the USSR had a multiple margin of safety. And Ukraine had free capacities after the destruction of the economy of the Ukrainian SSR. That's the whole answer. Only fools can believe in a warehouse with 750 kV transformers. Everything that could be stolen has already been stolen.
    I will not forget how, when traveling to the Crimea, (somewhere in the 12-13 years) I saw a piece of a hanging pole on wires

    This is what was said about when there were only attempts to disable power grids.
    There were scientists here at VO who claimed that the recovery would be fast.
    I would like to hear their arguments now.

    It's like asking an elm for pears. The Ukrainian energy system is destroyed, and with it its economy. Russia should continue to periodically bombard him.

    If Russia had started the NWO precisely from this, then now they would have created "green corridors" from the surrounded Kyiv.
