Background on Plant

Zuevskaya power station is a four-unit coal-fired power plant with a total capacity of 1,290 MW. The plant was completed between 1982 and 1988, and is owned by DTEK.[1]

The power station has been in the area of Ukraine not controlled by the Ukrainian government since 2015.[2] DTEK formally admitted it had lost control of the power station in 2017,[3] and the power station is not mentioned in its 2020 Annual Report.[4] There have been few updates on the status of the power station since the separatist occupation of Donetsk began.


The station uses coal as the main fuel with fuel oil and natural gas as the reserve fuel.[5]

War in Ukraine

In March 2022, it was reported that Russian forces have launched a strike on the power station and damaged one of the cooling towers.[6] It appears that as of March 2022, the station was still operating.[5]
