Background on Plant

Myronivskyi power station is a three-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 275 MW. The plant was completed between 1953 and 1957,

The plant used to be owned by DTEK, but the company's 2020 report stated that the rights to the enterprise were sold in November 2020.[1] It was not clear to who.

Unit 3 was overhauled in 2013.[2] Unit 2 was down for repairs in 2016 while Unit 3 was mothballed, according to DTEK's 2016 Report.[3]

According to DTEK's 2020 Annual Report, Units 2, 3, and 5 were in operation.[1]


In January 2015, production at the Myronivskyi power station was halted due to shelling during the conflict with Russia.[4]

In February 2017, the power station was forced to make an emergency stoppage due to an equipment malfunction.[5]

War in Ukraine

Since May 2022, the power station is under control of the Russian forces.[6] The station was incorporated under the management of new Russian company Energy of Donbass that earlier also appropriated Starobesheve power station.[7] Its website stated that installed capacity of the units is 275 MW consisting of Units 2, 3 and 5.[8]

A media report from November 2022 stated that the situation at the plant is catastrophic due to serious damage by Russian shelling. There was neither heat or light in the village. Repair crews were working to restore some heat supply.[9]

In February 2023, Russian media sources reported that preparation to restart the station was underway, stating that the operation of Mironivskyi power station and Vuglegirska power station will depend on capacity requirements, in particular if industrial companies need more capacity.[10][11] The plant was referred to as having installed capacity of 275 MW, but available capacity of only 90 MW, operating on coal from the Donbass region.[11] In May 2023, a Ukrainian media source stated that the occupiers launched the plant, but not at full capacity as it provides transit of electricity input and transmission to other facilities.[12] It was therefore assumed, as of June 2023, that one unit was operating.
