Water in Zaporizhzhya NPP cooler is sufficient for plant safety

Aug 8, 2023

The water in the cooling pond at Zaporizhzhya NPP is not at a critical level. It is sufficient for the safety of the plant.


This was stated by the head of Energoatom Petro Kotin, RBC-Ukraine reports.

"The water level is not critical. And if it moves, it will not reach such a level to become critical," Kotin said.

According to him, after the Russians blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, a large number of reservoirs appeared around the cooling pond, from which water can be pumped. Groundwater, which rises through wells, can also be used to cool the ZNPP.

"The water that is available is still coming, but there will be a level at which it will stop. And this water will still be enough to ensure the safety (of the plant - ed.), but not the operation of the power units. All power units must be shut down completely," Kotin added.
