Japan Transfers Power Generation Equipment to Ukraine

Gas/power generation installations will help Ukrainians to withstand another winter in the face of Russian attacks against energy infrastructure

On September 1, the minister of energy of Ukraine, Herman Galushchenko, and the extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador of Japan, Kuninori Matsuda, met in Kyiv. The topic of the negotiations was the preparation of Ukraine for the heating season and, accordingly, the replacement of war-damaged power generation equipment with working ones. According to the minister, Japan has agreed to provide Ukraine with equipment to provide a distributed energy infrastructure and, thus, energy security for Ukrainians under Russian fire this fall and winter.

"Gas turbine and gas piston installations, as reserve capacities, will help us to decentralize generation in the most difficult conditions," Herman Galushchenko.

As of today, Japan has transferred 12 batches of non-military aid to Ukraine, including generators, autonomous power plants, etc.

Kuninori Matsuda and Galushchenko discussed nuclear and radiation safety, which cannot be achieved while Russian troops are located at nuclear facilities in Ukraine.
