Fake Russian specialists will modernize the captured Kakhovskaya HPP and increase capacity by 30%

Russian propaganda reported that Russian specialists have started the modernization of two turbines of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, and such modernization can increase the capacity of the hydroelectric power station by a third. It will be recalled that the occupiers seized the station in the first days of the invasion of the Kherson region. According to StopFake fact-checkers, the Russians will not be able to modernize the Kakhovskaya HPP, because, firstly, part of the necessary equipment is produced only in Ukraine or the countries of the European Union. Secondly, to install more powerful equipment, it is necessary to make changes to the station’s structure, and this can damage the reinforced concrete dam of the Kakhovskaya HPP. Such works will last at least two years and will give a 5 percent increase, commented the energy generating company "Ukrhydroenergo". Russian media also wrote that one of the turbines "failed, but this is not related to hostilities." "Ukrhydroenergo" denies: as a result of the fighting near Kherson, the power grid was damaged, which caused multiple short circuits and disabled part of the station's equipment
