"(...) the dispatch centre of National Energy Company Ukrenergo activated the emergency assistance from Slovakia's power system in the amount of 100 MWatts so as to provide operational safety and to avoid the shutdown of Burshtyn thermal plant", reads the statement on the company's website.
The reason was the outage of two power units of Burshtyn TPP. Besides, the power unit No.2 resumed work early after maintenance works.
