Ukraine – “enough water” for the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant

Ukraine – “enough water” for the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant

Zaporizhia. According to Ukrainian sources, the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant still has enough cooling water despite the destruction of the Kakhovka Dam. Ukraine’s environment minister announced that the water level in the basins used to cool reactors at Europe’s largest nuclear power plant is stable and sufficient, despite the low water level in the Kakhovka reservoir.

The International Atomic Energy Agency had previously expressed concern. The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, said on Sunday that the water level at the dam had been stable for about a day at the weekend. “However, at other points in the massive reservoir, the level continues to drop, resulting in a potential difference of about two metres.” Water level height is an important parameter for continued functionality of water pumps. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the reservoir water is used to cool the plant’s six reactors and store spent fuel elements.

Meanwhile, according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, international investigations into the destruction of the dam are already underway. It is important that international legal experts examine the consequences of the disaster. This also includes the bombing of a lifeboat in the flooded area.
