From money to ships-power plants. How the world is helping Kyiv with electricity

Turkey will provide power ships to Ukraine, EU countries will provide generators, and the United States is looking for money for Kyiv.

Ukraine’s energy system after the Russian rocket attack remains intact – all regions have recovered, except for the Kherson region. In general, electricity production covers 70% of needs, the deficit is 30%, so the country has emergency and planned power outages.

Kyiv’s partners continue to work hard to provide our country with everything it needs to restore the destroyed infrastructure and prevent the Russian Federation from using the cold winter as a weapon against Ukraine. How exactly they help us tell Correspondent.net.


The Turkish company Karpowership offered Ukraine ships-power plants. Three ships with a total capacity of 300 MW will be installed near Odessa.

Zeynep Kharezi, a board member of Karpowership for commercial operations, said that the plan for moving power ships to Ukraine needs UN approval. Once agreements are reached on technical and commercial aspects, the company will work on developing routes through which floating power plants can safely reach Ukraine.

The company also reported that the floating power plants could arrive in Odessa by the end of the year, as all ships are ready and put into operation. Three weeks before they start generating electricity for Ukraine.

As the three power plant ships operate at full capacity, they will be able to power up to one million homes.

Note that Karpowership has eight ships that can generate up to two gigawatts of electricity, which is enough to power nearly five million homes. Its largest ship has a capacity of 500 megawatts. Previously, power ships were used as a source of electricity in Africa.

Generator batch

Germany will give Ukraine 56 million euros for the repair of energy system facilities, as well as more than 350 generators. According to the German government, this aid package was discussed by phone on Tuesday, November 29, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Zelensky also reportedly told Olaf about the consequences of Russian strikes on civilian infrastructure, to which Olaf replied that this package was short-term aid.

France will supply Ukraine with 100 generators with a capacity of 50 to 100 kW. They will be handed over to the Ukrainian authorities through Romania.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is also providing Ukraine with 80 generators to maintain the electricity supply.

Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu said his country had sent generators to Kyiv. But according to him, the main task of Western countries is the immediate supply of long-range missiles to Ukraine.

The EU is providing 40 more generators in addition to the 550 already provided through the civil protection mechanism.

Finland also provided equipment to Ukraine to restore the power grid after the missile strike.

coordination group

The US and its Western partners are creating a coordination group to synchronize their support for rebuilding Ukraine’s infrastructure. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken called the bombing of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure “barbaric” and “cruel treatment” by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Blinken is also expected to announce a new aid package for the Ukrainian power grid and discuss plans to transfer new equipment.

Washington is now working with US utility and equipment suppliers, as well as European countries, to find equipment to repair high-voltage stations damaged by Russian missile strikes.
