Dnipro HPP fired on March 22 – Ugrihydronergo explained the situation at the dam

He pointed to various opinions and statements about the fact that DniproHPP can no longer be restored. He, however, urged not to jump to conclusions before properly inspecting the shelled station.

“Today, I hear many comments that the station cannot be restored, that the station will no longer work. Any consequences must be restructured. The only question is time and funding,” Sirota said.

According to the head of “Ukrhydroenergo”, half of the engine room is damaged, so they cannot give an estimate at the moment.

“It is impossible to take and analyze this equipment. It will take at least 2-3 days to conduct preliminary tests and analysis related to restoration,” he said.

At the same time, Ugrihydronergo assured that the dam was not breached.

“The dam is very strong. It takes a lot of rockets in one place to break it. There is no threat of the dam breaking today,” he said.
