The load on nuclear power should be reduced – Committee of the Verkhovna Rada

Нагрузку на атомную энергетику нужно снижать - комитет ВР

Most power plants have already outlived their usefulness, said in Parliament.

The frequent outages of power units at nuclear power plants indicate the need to reduce the burden on nuclear power generation. This was stated by member of parliamentary Committee on questions toplivno-a power complex Yury Chizhmar.

According to him, most of the capacity of domestic nuclear power plants have already outlived their usefulness.

“Every power plant, every unit has its time of use, after which they should be preserved. But we, in Ukraine, traditionally just carry out the examination and extend the deadline. Of course, if everything is done correctly there is no problem. But if nuclear power plants already run your life, it is clear that they are more likely to be in emergency or other repairs,” he said, Chizhmar 112.

He also noted that such a situation raises questions the intention of the Ministry of energy to increase the generation of electricity through nuclear capacities.

“Since the issue of the Ministry has been shipped, then we may need to consider it at the Committee, we must provide some information, at least to inform the society,” – said the MP.

Chizhmar stressed that Ukraine needs to form a long-term plan for the transition from nuclear energy to alternative sources of electricity production.

As reported today in the Nikolaev area on the South-Ukrainian NPP was a shutdown of the unit.
