Gas supplies to Kyiv’s TPP-6 cut over debts
Kyivtransgas on Tuesday, May 30, halted completely gas supplies to the capital’s TPP-6 thermal power plant, which provides thermal energy to four Kyiv districts.
The TPP services 3,138 buildings including 2,142 residential houses, 39 medical institutions, and 164 kindergartens, and 670 institutions.
One of the main reasons the supplies were cut lays in the debts accumulated by the state and customers for central heating and hot water utilities.
