Blackouts are occurring across the country due to a drop in the frequency of the power grid for an as of yet unknown reason.

This was reported by the energy company DTEK on Telegram, noting that the reasons for the decrease in frequency are being investigated by Ukrenergo specialists.

“On May 30, from 13:28, blackouts occur throughout the country due to the operation of automation on the energy infrastructure. It was caused by a decrease in the frequency in the unified energy system of Ukraine,” the report says. As of 2:32 p.m., Ukrenergo gave permission to restore power supply.

The company “Ukrenergo” reported that at about 13.00 in the power system, several main high-voltage lines were switched off in an emergency. As a result, consumers in a number of areas were partially de-energized by the action of emergency automatics.

“Consumers are now being connected. Electricity supplies to all consumers will be resumed in the next few hours,” the message says.

The company noted that an investigation into the causes of the incident had been launched. “We emphasize separately that the shutdowns occurred for technical reasons and are not related to a shortage of power in the energy system,” the press service emphasized.
