IAEA: “The Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant is again disconnected from the grid” | News

ModernizationAccording to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the nuclear power plant in Zaporizhia, Ukraine, which was occupied by Russian forces “has again lost contact” with the power grid. On August 25, a similar incident occurred.

The Ukrainian authorities told the International Atomic Energy Agency that the new chapter occurred “after the Russian bombing of the region.” With a backup line, power can still be supplied to the external electricity grid via a nearby thermal power plant.

This facility also allows the power plant to have its own power if needed. The Russian-backed authorities confirm that a main line was damaged in the bombing and say that electricity was cut off in the neighboring areas.

International Atomic Energy Agency chief Rafael Grossi on Friday expressed concern about the safety of the nuclear power plant, which he believes stands or falls “with a reliable connection to electricity.” Nuclear power plants sometimes rely on external energy to cool reactors. If not, the nuclear power plant will rely on diesel emergency generators. If something goes wrong there, for example due to a lack of fuel or a defect, a breakdown could become possible.


The Russian Defense Ministry accused the Ukrainian army of trying to retake the site on Saturday, but it was destroyed by Russian forces. Moscow and Kiev have accused each other of bombing the world’s largest nuclear power plant for weeks, raising fears of a nuclear catastrophe.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, said today that Turkey can play the role of mediator in the nuclear power plant issue. According to the Turkish president’s office, the country wants to “play the role of mediator as it did in the grain deal.”
