Ukraine will not be restoring the power units of Thermal Power Stations which were destroyed by russians


Ukraine plans to build up to 20 small modular reactors instead of the destroyed thermal power units during the war. This was stated by the Ukrainian Minister of Energy Herman Halushchenko. “This is the best option for replacing thermal generation. We will move within the framework of the “green transition” using the SMR technology, which is the best technology,” he said during a visit to one of the energy companies.

Small modular reactors (SMRs) are a proposed class of nuclear fission reactors, smaller than conventional nuclear reactors, which can be built in one location then shipped, commissioned, and operated at a separate site.

They want to build such reactors on the sites of old coal-fired power units. According to the President of “Energoatom” Petro Kotin, this will allow breaking down the energy system into small consumption and electricity production areas as needed. Then, in the event of damage to the central energy system, it can be divided into “islands,” and small-scale generation will provide consumption in that area.

According to him, the construction of SMRs is a perspective for the years 2028-2030.
