Ukrgazvydobuvannia receives 120 generators in eight months as humanitarian aid from 11 countries for continuous gas production

KYIV. March 6 (Interfax-Ukraine) – About 120 generators of various capacities totaling more than UAH 50 million have been received by JSC Ukrgazvydobuvannia as donor aid from 11 countries over the past eight months, the Naftogaz Group website reported on Monday.

“Thanks to these generators, we produce gas regardless of the availability of electricity and continue to work to increase our own production. The world does not get tired of Ukraine, no matter how much the enemy wants it, but continues to help us,” head of the Naftogaz group Oleksiy Chernyshov is quoted on the website.

In particular, Ukrgazvydobuvannia received power equipment from Great Britain, Poland, France, Sweden, Azerbaijan, Norway, Switzerland, Japan, Belgium, Lithuania and Italy.

As Naftogaz said, the supply of generators became possible thanks to the participation of the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, which in the spring of 2022 began work to attract donors to maintain the constant work of energy companies in the conditions of war.

“At the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, regular power outages led to the disruption of our production processes and, as a result, to loss of production. The help of the government and foreign donors who responded to our requests has become important for the stabilization of our work and production of Ukrainian gas in general,” Oleh Tolmachev, Acting Director General of Ukrgazvydobuvannia, said.

According to him, during the war, the company managed to minimize losses in gas production, and now a plan is being put forward to increase it.
