Dont have much information but it is being updates as i type.

Think because of this the Ukrains will have trouble finding engouh power to ensure to survive the cold harsh winter conditions.
And its a very positive effent for the Russians as they have enough power to spare but would like half their country in return.



News agency Interfax Ukraine said the problem had occurred at bloc No 3 - a 1,000-megawatt reactor - and the resulting lack of output had worsened the power crisis in the country. Interfax added that the bloc was expected to come back on stream on Dec. 5.

Hmmmm...

I wonder who some people here on ATS are going to blame?


Extra info here :


Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said on Wednesday that there has been an accident at a nuclear plant in southeastern Ukraine, Reuters reports. "I know that an accident has occurred at the Zaporizhye NPP," Yatseniuk said, asking new energy minister Volodymyr Demchyshyn to make clear when the problem would be resolved and what steps would be taken to restore normal power supply across Ukraine. News agency Interfax Ukraine said the problem had occurred at bloc No 3 - a 1,000-megawatt reactor - and the resulting lack of output had worsened the power crisis in the country. Interfax added that the bloc was expected to come back on stream on Dec. 5. There are reports that the damage is minor, with no damage to the reactor. Ukraine gets about half its power from nuclear plants. "Assuming it is indeed as minor as now appears, suggest Yatsenyuk goes on a 'how to talk about nuclear incidents without sowing panic' course," Guardian journalist Shaun Walker, who has covered the conflict in Ukraine, tweeted.

Although we can never tell from the information we have... it sounds more of a technical problem rather than something dangerous. I have friends there but contacting them is usually almost impossible.

Well-known problems again?


Ukrainian-owned energy company Energoatom told Reuters it will start testing fuel from Westinghouse at the third unit of the South Ukraine Nuclear Power Plant in 2015.

Westinghouse and Ukraine first signed a fuel supply deal in 2000, but in 2012, the Westinghouse fuel to the South Ukraine plant was found to be faulty and operations were shut down, the article said.


Westinghouse in talks to supply nuclear fuel to Ukraine power plants

Ukraine in ruins, except another Chernobyl?


In 2005, six experimental Westinghouse fuel assemblies, adopted for use in USSR-developed reactors, were tried at the South Ukraine plant in one reactor together with Russian fuel rods. By 2008 Ukraine signed a contract with Westinghouse on fuel rod supply. However, the experiment showed that Westinghouse assemblies deformed during exploitation and got stuck in the core. The reason is simple – Russian nuclear fuel rods are hexagonal in section, while Americans produce fuel assemblies of square section.

By 2012, after the failed test, exploitation of US nuclear fuel was banned in Ukraine and the fuel rods were returned to the producer “to get fixed” while Russian scientists came to the rescue. The Energoatom Company of Ukraine lost an estimated $175 million in this trial.

Why am I not surprised the only two sources are Russian media?

If this was such a big thing, why haven't they said something in any of their news releases on their site? That alone shows me that RT has made some news for themselves, and as we know this isn't their first run on making stories up...especially concerning anything with Ukraine.

Now with that said care to provide a corroborating report that isn't sourced back to RT or Sputnik news?

Why they are going to be restarted Dec. 5th?


Interfax added that the bloc was expected to come back on stream on Dec. 5.

Mr Demchyshyn said that damage to a transformer in a power-generating unit had triggered an automatic shutdown of one of the six 1,000 MW reactors.

Sorry, no Chernobyl


...yet. Hope dies last.

Ukrainian source from 2010.


A leaked document points to doubts among experts over the safety of controversial nuclear fuel supplied to Ukraine by international company Westinghouse Electric Company. The German document was leaked to Internet site versii.com. It was confirmed as authentic by its authors, the renowned German technical certification agency TUEV

Past malfunctions at involving fuel supplied by Westinghouse caused contamination of cooling water and a reactor shutdown at a reactor in the Czech Republic.


Use of controversial nuclear fuel triggers safety, supply concerns

Bonus for ukrainian maidan-democrats:


While former President Viktor Yushchenko also supported Westinghouse’s efforts to manufacture fuel for Soviet-era reactors, it is thought that the new Yanukovych administration will prefer to stick with Russia’s TVEL, whose prices are lower.

Yes and Westinghouse hasn't sent anything to Ukraine since 2012, yet as the source I provided Russia is responsible for all of the fuel that runs in those plants. Also had you paid attention it was a power problem that caused this nothing more...so what do you think your links are proving?

So how does what happened in 2010 or 2012 have any relevancy to the problems that happened now, because they aren't even related?

Early testing? Today the same young (and fresh) "minister" Mr Demchyshyn announced that coal left in Ukraine only for four days...


Westinghouse Electric Co. is in talks with the Ukraine to supply nuclear fuel for power generation from 2015 to help cut Ukraine's dependence on Russia.


...at any cost...


KIEV, April 11, 2014 -- Westinghouse Electric Company and the National Nuclear Energy Generating Company of Ukraine (NNEGC Energoatom) today agreed to a contract extension for fuel deliveries to Ukrainian nuclear power plants through 2020. The contract provides for the continuation of the long-standing partnership between the two companies in providing competitive and secure nuclear fuel supplies for Ukraine’s reactor fleet.

God i wish we all could pull away from Nuclear power and go to something else, or even revert back to older technologies till we find something, anything else. This Technology is soooooo dangerous to all life.

So your hope is a meltdown, another Chernobyl? Says all that needs to be said about your character.

WHy do you keep posting links to Westinghouse, as the reason for the shutdown is known and it had nothing to do with Westinghouse and them supplying fuel to Ukraine?

It was a power supply problem and nothing else...for god's sake quit the fearmongering it is getting a bit silly now.

this is a conspiracy website. do you really want us to believe that the ukrainian government would say the truth in case they've tested western fuel rods once again and failed, and that they would admit that the situation is more serious than they claim?

care to provide a links proving the 100% credibility and honesty of ukrainian government? because your constant barking at russia and blind faith in everything that ukrainian government spews out gets kinda silly.
