Ukrenergo to begin construction of three strategic power lines in 2024, interested in Ukrainian equipment manufacturers – Kudrytsky

NPC Ukrenergo is starting the construction of three main power transmission lines this year and is interested in purchasing products from domestic manufacturers for these purposes, company's chairman of the board Volodymyr Kudrytsky said.

"This year we are starting to build three strategic power transmission lines, main ones. And for this, for example, we need 100,000 high-voltage insulators. In the west of Ukraine there is an enterprise that can produce them, although it is not producing them yet. The state temporarily manages it, but now a simple question: to launch this production so that we can buy insulators from our manufacturer, and not, say, in China," he said at the Made in Ukraine forum in Kyiv on Monday.

He noted that Ukrenergo's purchase balance includes 85% of products from Ukrainian manufacturers.

"We could have 95-97% if Ukrainian factories could produce as much as we need," Kudrytsky emphasized.

As reported, at this forum he noted that with the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine and shelling of the energy system, Ukrainian manufacturers of electrical equipment have significantly increased production volumes, and also have great potential for increasing their presence in the European market. He noted that some production facilities have increased their volume by five to six times.
