Update 140 – IAEA Director General Statement on Situation in Ukraine

Vienna, Austria

Back up power to the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) was restored yesterday evening after repairs to the 330 kilovolt (kV) line, which was disconnected last week due to damage caused by shelling, were completed, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team currently present at the plant confirmed. The repair work of this last functioning external back up line – delayed by shelling in recent days – ensures that off-site electricity for essential nuclear safety and security functions can still be provided if the plant again loses connection to the 750 kV main external power line. The facility’s supplies of electricity from the grid continue to be fragile, IAEA Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said today.
