Diesel generators at Chornobyl NPP will ensure its operation for 48 hours

At Chornobyl NPP, after a blackout as a result of an emergency shutdown of the 750 kV overhead line Chornobyl-PS Kyiv, due to the actions of Russian occupiers, diesel generators were turned on, which will be able to ensure the life of the site for a maximum of 48 hours, the State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine said on March 9, 2022.

The de-energization of Chornobyl NPP makes it impossible to control the parameters of nuclear and radiation safety at the enterprise’s facilities.

The Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate said that all facilities located in the exclusion zone continue to be under the control of the military of the aggressor country, which disregards all nuclear safety rules: “The occupier continues to grossly violate the requirements of radiation safety and the sanitary access regime at the enterprise and in the exclusion zone, which leads to a deterioration in the radiation situation in them, and also contributes to the spread of radioactive contamination outside the zone.”
