Recovery means that three backup lines can now be backed up again. This backup power supply was also damaged, but it has been fixed within the past week. When all the cables supplying the power plant failed, one of the reactors supplied the power plant with power, but this is not a long-term solution.

Power from outside is needed to cool reactors and other things essential to safety. When one of the backup cables was repaired last Sunday, its power supply was no longer necessary and all six reactors at the plant were shut down. Since September 5, Zaporizhzhya no longer supplies electricity to homes and industry.

The incessant bombing in recent weeks has caused damage to high voltage cables and several buildings, leading to the power plant being disconnected from the power grid on several occasions. Ukraine and Russia designate each other as responsible.

International Atomic Energy Agency chief Rafael Grossi said on Saturday that the situation around the nuclear power plant remains worrying, even after the partial recovery of energy supplies. Grossi said there may not have been any fighting near the plant recently, but there has been fighting in the wider area.
