CMU postponed the privatization of six CHPs

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine (CMU) has postponed the privatization of six combined heat and power plants (CHPs) and handed them over to the management of the NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine, as the stations will have to go through the 2021-2022 national heating season and be duly provided with natural gas.

The decision was announced by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal during a press conference on September 14, 2021. These are the Severodonetsk, the Odesa, the Kherson, the Mykolaiv, the Dnipro, and the Kryvyi Rih CHPs.

This year they are leaving the list of objects of "big" privatization. The process of their privatization will be able to continue when the issues with the work and debts of these CHPs are resolved, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal added.

As previously reported by ExPro, on August 4, 2021, the CMU transferred six CHPs to the management of the NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine. This should provide these CHPs with natural gas for the 2021-2022 national heating season and carry out their overhauls.

The Ministry of Energy explained the need to transfer the CHPs to the management by the NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine due to large debts of the formers, which poses a threat of disruption of the 2021-2022 heating season in Ukraine.
