Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments
The proposed project consists of construction of a new 750 kV power transmission line.
This public sector project entails a 190km long 750 kV TL connecting Zaporizhska Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) with a newly planned substation in Nova Kahovka (750/330 kV Kahovska substation) along with two 330kV double circuit diversions (TL 330 kV Novokahovska – Ostrovska and Novokahovska – Kherson) of 28 and 17 km length, and a rehabilitation of an existing substation 330/220 kV (SS 330 kV Novokahovska substation).
The current design and planning is mainly based on the original routing from the 1980s and the already existing tower locations. The exact routing of the current design and planning stage will be established after completion of field work by the surveyors; and as a part of the assessment a number of alternative routes were considered.
The objective of this Project is to increase the efficiency of the national power sector by allowing Zaporizhzhia NPP to operate at full power (6000 MW) following a better connection to the power network with an ultimate benefit also to regional power supply reliability and quality. Increased reliability of the power system will increase overall sector efficiency will thus have indirect environmental benefits and facilitate international co-operation in the sector.

During the project implementation an additional subproject was undertaken for the construction of a fibre-optic cable and the rehabilitation of an existing 330 kV Novokakhovska – Khersonska overhead line. An independent Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (EISA) was undertaken of this work to assess any potential environmental and social impacts. This has demonstrated that the Project is associated with minimal environmental and social issues and does not materially affect the conclusions of the existing ESIA. The Addendum ESIA and Non-Technical Summary were disclosed and can be obtained from the Ukrenergo website in English and Ukranian.
