Background

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, and is owned by DTEK.[1]

Unit 5 has been mothballed since at least 2018.[2] Unit 6 was mothballed in 2020, meaning that the power station was operating with 1,200 MW of capacity.[3]

In February 2022, it was reported that only one unit was operating at that time, with three under repair and two more mothballed. It is likely that units 2-4 were under repair since units 5-6 have been mothballed.[4]

Accidents and targeted attacks

Unplanned outages are frequent at the Ladyzhyn power station.[5] In the first seven months of 2021, there were 31 emergencies at the Ladyzhyn power station that required a stoppage of energy production.[6]

In May 2021, four workers received serious burns and were hospitalized due to a gas leak at the Ladyzhyn power station.[7]

In January 2022, two workers died of electric shock while performing work at the plant.[8]

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.[9]
