Global energy system is undergoing constant development and radical changes, and these changes occur faster than expected. In the nearest 20 years, global electricity consumption may increase by more than 50% while greenhouse gas emissions may reduce by 75%*. It is deemed viable due to more than $10* tln of global investments by 2040 into new efficient generating capacities only. Rapid growth of energy demands requires re-organization of existing operating mechanisms and reframe of energy supply system in general. Certainly, these changes will not occur in one day, but modernization and improvement of key system mechanisms require our immediate decisive actions.
 
The New Energy Strategy of Ukraine until 2035 defines strategic areas and terms of further functioning and development of the Ukrainian energy system on its way to integration into the unified European energy system, in particular, implementation of modern globally competitive scientific researches of systems and equipment. Currently, there are successful functioning innovative infrastructure projects, there have been implemented changes as to energy resources management – during the year of 2017 there were adopted 4 laws regulating energy efficiency in Ukraine.
 
That is why it is essential to ensure a possibility to share best practices between Ukrainian participants of the energy market and other experts from SEERC region, and enable discussion of the fastest and most efficient ways for the European integration of the Ukrainian energy system.
 
THE SECOND REGIONAL CONFERENCE SEERC 2018 will be held in Kyiv on June 12-13, 2018 and is meant to become a communication platform for a productive dialogue between representatives of energy generating and energy distributing companies, producers of energy equipment and services, developers of innovative and forward-looking energy systems, Ukrainian government and international energy community as well as all those interested in formation and development of electricity market.

Technical visit to Chornobyl NPP

Technical visit to Chornobyl NPP

A trip to Chernobyl is a unique opportunity to visit the well-known world-wide alienation area - the main evidence of the Chernobyl disaster.

 The tour takes place in a group under the guidance of a professional guide. It is planned to visit 2 abandoned cities - Chernobyl and Pripyat. Participants will be able to walk through the deserted streets, get acquainted with the New Safe Confidential (NSC), which is built jointly by almost hundreds of countries around the world over 4 destroyed power units of the nuclear power plant. The excursion program may vary depending on weather conditions and access to separate areas in the exclusion zone. Documents for visiting the closed zone are issued in advance. For non-residents of the country a longer procedure is foreseen.

Schedule

Morning departure from Kiev, in an hour after departure - crossing of the checkpoint "Dityatky", entry into the 30-kilometer exclusion zone. Immediately upon arrival - a brief informational course on the history of the tragedy. After that a study tour of the city of Chornobyl and further travel to the 10-kilometer exclusion zone   with a review of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, including the NSC observation area of NSC, power units that are in a state of decommissioning. In the evening, the participants return to Kyiv.

The cost of the tour includes: travel on a comfortable bus, support of a licensed guide, lunch.

 Staying on the territory of the Chernobyl zone on the route provided by the program, with strict adherence to the requirements of the attendants, the radiation hazard does not represent. During one full day excursion to the Chornobyl zone, you will receive a dose of radiation in about 1 hour of flight on the plane.

Electric power substation 750 kV Kyivska

Voltage: 750/330/35/10 kV

Capacity: 999 MVA

Reserve capacity: 750 kV – 0 MW; 330 kV – 400 MW; (for connection of electricity producers).

The construction of substation “Kyivska” started in 2006. A place near 750 kV OHL Chornobyl NPP – Vinnytska was chosen for a new power unit to transfer the lines from Chornobyl OSG to a new substation. After the completion of construction and connection of 750 kV OHL Khmelnytska NPP – Kyivska, the substation replaced 750 kV OSG of Chornobylska NPP. However, there is only one overhang from 750 kV OHL Chornobyl NPP – Kyivska, actually used for feeding the Chornobyl zone.

Thus, the city of Kyiv and Kyiv region received additional 1000-1200 MW of capacity from Khmelnytska NPP and Rivnenska NPP.

In September 2016, the overhang of 750 kV OHL Khmelnytska NPP – Chornobylska NPP at 750 kV SS “Kyivska” with a length of 135 km was put into operation. By 2020, all substations of “Kyivske Kiltse,” managed by Ukrenergo, will upgrade its equipment and introduce automation of technological processes. Due to the switch to remote control, they may become the first non-serviced substations in Ukraine.

Kyivska HPP - Kyivska HPSPP

Kyivska HPP

Kyiv HPP has been operating since 1964, when the first hydroelectric plant began to work. Now in the power plant of 20 hydro units, the total capacity of which after reconstruction is 436.5 MW.

The total length of the pressure front of Kyiv hydropower systems is 42.3 km with the throughput of 12,500 m3/sec. There was first used low-pressure horizontal capsule hydro units at Kiev hydroelectric power plant, which allowed the design of a hydroelectric power station in conjunction with a water drain and refuse the construction of a separate drainage dam.

Kyivska hydropower plant was the first to use low-pressure horizontal capsule hydraulic units, making it possible to design a hydropower plant in conjunction with a water drain and refuse the construction of a separate drainage dam.

Kyivska HPSPP

The PSP is constructed to increase the peak power of Ukraine's grid, regulatory and reserve functions.  Kyiv Hydroelectric Power Station has been operation since 1970, when the first hydroelectric unit was put into operation, now there are 6 vertical hydropower units operating in the power plant: three aggregates with capacity of 41.5 MW with radial axial turbines and three with a pump with 37 MW turbines. The installed capacity of the PSP in the generator mode is 235.5 MW, in the pump-129 MW.

The lowest reservoir of the HPSPP is the reservoir of Kyivska HPP.  An artificially created upper reservoir with a useful capacity of 3.7 million m3 is constructed on the steep bank of Dnipro River (slope 1:5) and rises above the level of the reservoir of Kyivska HPP for 70 m. Near the slope, there is a building of the power station, where six vertical hydropower units are installed. Three out of the six hydro units of the HPSPP are connected to the upper reservoir with six metal pressure pipelines of 3.8 m in diameter. When working in pump mode of the PSP, fill in 6 hours. Upper pool, During the peak load period, all six units operate in generator mode for 2 hours and 20 minutes.
