In the scope of
the implementation of the approved Energy Strategy by 2035, the Cabinet of Ministers
of Ukraine has been vigorously working to increase the capacities of Ukrainian
nuclear power plants aimed to secure the domestic energy demands and export
electricity. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced during A Question
Time for the Government at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
The Head of
Government reminded that in September Kharkiv had been the venue for the
ceremony of signing large agreements with American partners to roll out NPP
equipment modernization projects to the tune of over USD 5 billion. "We have
embarked on work on the European power interconnector. I think that from 2021
we will have chance to proceed to the completion of units. This is our plan, we
have focused on that, we exert every effort to ensure safety of the nuclear
power industry and availability of facilities to satisfy the domestic needs and
to switch to electricity exports. This would improve the economy’s performance
and sustainability," said Volodymyr Groysman.
