Lithuania delivers autotransformer to Ukraine
Ukraine, Kyiv: Ukraine has received a heavy-duty power autotransformer from the Republic of Lithuania, installed at an HV substation of the power transmission system.
“It transforms the voltage from the backbone to the distribution level and can provide electricity to up to 200,000 households,” the Ministry of Energy said.
As noted in the ministry, Minister of Energy of Ukraine Herman Haluschenko discussed the need for this kind of transformer with his Lithuanian counterpart, Minister of Energy Dainius Kreivys, who promptly responded to the request, and Lithuania handed over the necessary equipment to Ukraine.
“We are extremely grateful to our Lithuanian friends for this significant assistance because such equipment is extremely important for restoring energy infrastructure facilities,” Haluschenko was quoted on the website of the Ministry of Energy.
The delivery of this autotransformer to Ukraine was the largest logistics operation ever coordinated by the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, the ministry said.
