Occupiers Once Again Shelled Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, Power Unit No. 6 Was Damaged
Today, September 21, 2022, at 01:13, the occupying forces shelled the territory of the Zaporizhzhia NPP. The communication equipment of power unit No. 6 with the open switchgear of the Zaporizhzhia NPP was damaged as a result of shelling of the plant. The unit transformer and transformers of the power unit's needs were disconnected as a result of the attack. This resulted in the loss of power to the power unit No. 6. The power cuts caused an emergency start of two diesel generators of the safety systems to ensure the operation of the fuel cooling pumps.
At 02:00, Zaporizhzhia NPP staff found an opportunity and ensured power supply for power unit No. 6's own needs from the systems of other power units of the plant. The diesel generators of unit No. 6 were turned off and put into standby mode.
The invaders continue to commit acts of nuclear terrorism at the Ukrainian nuclear power plants. Even the presence of IAEA inspectors at the Zaporizhzhia NPP site does not stop them.
