The Danish Energy Agency, in close cooperation with the Danish Embassy in Kyiv and the trade organizations DBDH and DANVA, has coordinated a collection of equipment for the reconstruction of the supply systems in the Ukrainian region of Mykolaiv.
Mykolaiv, which has just over half a million inhabitants and is located approximately 100 km from the city of Kherson, has requested equipment to repair damaged district heating systems and equipment for the electricity sector. Against this background, Danish district heating suppliers and water utility companies have donated 11 tons of equipment, which has now arrived.
Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February, the Danish Energy Agency, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Climate, Energy, and Supply have worked together with Ukraine to clarify how Denmark can support the maintenance and reconstruction of the energy infrastructure in Ukraine. Cooperation with Ukraine is already close, and since 2014 Denmark and Ukraine have entered a close partnership to ensure a green transition in Ukraine and make the country independent of energy from Russia.
The Danish companies Grundfos, Broen, Hydro-X, and several waterworks have generously donated 11 tonnes of equipment, including water pumps, valves, and electrodes. The equipment, which will replace damaged components in Mykolaiv's district heating and water supply, constitutes a substantial contribution to rebuilding the energy infrastructure in the region.
