Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant operates with the risk of violating radiation and fire safety regulations because of Russian shelling

Russian shelling of Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant has caused a serious risk to the safe operation of the plant, National Nuclear Energy Generating Company of Ukraine — Energoatom — reports on Telegram.

“As a result of the attack on the Zaporizhzhya NPP, the emergency protection of one of the power units was activated — and one of the three operating power units is now disconnected. During the shelling, the nitrogen-oxygen station, the combined auxiliary building, and the domestic sewage pumping station were seriously damaged. The 750 kV open switchgear (VRP-750) was also damaged,” the company informs.

There are still risks of hydrogen leakage and sputtering of radioactive substances, and the fire hazard is high, Energoatom says.
