A dam was destroyed at the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station. At the moment, there is no threat of security of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant. On Tuesday, on June 6, it was reported on the telegram channel of the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation “Rosatom”.
Five blocks are in the “Cold Stop” mode, one in the “hot stop” mode, the water level in the cooler pond has not changed and is 16.67 m, it follows from the message.
“Water that cools the excerpts of exposure to the designed nuclear fuel is a closed circuit that does not have contact with the environment and water of the Kakhovsky reservoir. The heat removal system to the final absorber can be replenished both by the water of the Kakhovsky reservoir and several alternative sources”, – said the director of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant Yuri Chernichuk.
The situation is controlled by the personnel of the nuclear power plant. There is no official information on the destruction of the dam at the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station and for the reasons for what happened yet.
At the same time, the adviser to the head of the Renergoatom concern Renat Karchaa told Interfax that the destruction of the Kakhovsky hydroelectric station in the Kherson region of Ukraine will not affect the functioning of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant in Energodar. “The incident to the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant, of course, does not carry a sad event. The cooling system outside the risk zone,” he said.
According to him, experts compensate for the decrease in the level of the Kakhovsky reservoir “in other technical methods.”
Karchaa named any escalation of the situation and false statements on the security of the ZASE with a manifestation of unprofessionalism or a provocation.
The head of the New Kakhovka Vladimir Leontyev previously said that due to the shelling, Sandoras of the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station were destroyed. This led to an uncontrolled discharge of water from the Kakhovsky reservoir downstream. He admitted that this could lead to problems with the supply of water to the annexed Crimea.
