As a result of early freshet, hydroelectric power plants produce about 65 million kWh of electricity daily, announced Ihor Syrota, CEO of Ukrhydroenergo, on national television.

According to him, this is a record amount of electricity.

Syrota noted that previously freshet started in April, but for the second year in a row the flood starts in early February. According to the observations of hydropower engineers, water levels and inflows are now at the level of last year.

"This is a good situation for the power system, because we can support it," said Syrota.

Currently, the reservoirs are within the design limits.

In Kyiv, as of March 16, the water level in the Dnipro rose to its absolute maximum since the beginning of 2024, but no emergency flooding was recorded.

In December, Ukrhydroenergo received a tranche of 133 million euros from the European Investment Bank (EIB) for the implementation of the project "Rehabilitation of hydropower plants".
