Ladyzhyn power station is a six-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,800 MW. The plant was completed between 1970 and 1971.

The power plant is owned by DTEK Westenergy JSC, a subsidiary of DTEK Energy, which in turn is owned by SCM (System Capital Management) Limited.[2][3]

Unit 5 has been mothballed since at least 2018. [4] Unit 6 was mothballed in 2020, meaning that the power station was operating with 1,200 MW of capacity.[5]

On 21 February 2022, ahead of the planned connection of the Ukrainian power system to the European system, it was reported that only one unit of the plant was operating at that time, with three under repair and two more mothballed.[6]


Unplanned outages are frequent at the Ladyzhyn power station.[7] In the first seven months of 2021, there were 31 emergencies at the Ladyzhyn power station that required a stoppage of energy production.[8]

In May 2021, four workers received serious burns and were hospitalized due to a gas leak at the Ladyzhyn power station.[9]

In January 2022, two workers died of electric shock while performing work at the plant.[10]

War in Ukraine

In October 2022, amid several days of air strikes, Russian missiles attacked the power station twice. The second attack damaged critical infrastructure and injured several people.[11]

The plant stopped working on November 23 as a result of Russian missile attacks. In Vinnytsia, 18,000 people were without heating. Shelling had been going on since October 10 with significant destruction.[12]

The plant was shelled again in January 2023, resulting in significant damage.[13][14] The units were therefore assumed mothballed, as of June 2023.

A report from December 2023 stated that an incident at the plant (not related to shelling) resulted in electricity cut. The blackout was eliminated.[15] It therefore appeared that the plant had previously restored electricity production. Therefore, the plant was was assumed to be operating as of January 2024 in some capacity, but it is not known which units are in operation.
