Despite the hostilities and constant shelling, employees of the Kharkiv MPLPD are preparing the gas infrastructure of the border region for the heating season and promptly eliminating the damages caused by the occupiers. As part of a working trip, Sergiy Makogon, CEO of Gas TSO of Ukraine, has met with the MPLPD team, which has been protecting the region’s energy security for five months now.
The employees of MPLPD have already performed hot works at all accessible sections. As a result, the damages to both lines of the main gas pipeline, important for the region and Ukraine, have been fixed, and the line to a settlement adjacent to Kharkiv has been repaired. In addition, the MPLPD is also restoring the gas distribution station, which was destroyed in March by russian rocket fire. At the moment, one GDS outlet has been put into operation, and works on connecting the station to the “Kharkiv ring” are ongoing.
At the meeting with the team, Sergiy Makogon discussed with his colleagues the current state of GTS and key facilities operation. They addressed general technical issues, specifics, and questions related to conducting repair works, further steps, and plans, and inspected industrial facilities destroyed by shelling, but resuming their operation.
Also, the CEO of GTSOU presented the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine awards to the employees of the Kharkiv MPLPD — for their contribution to the national security and defense of the country, high professionalism, and selfless, courageous work.
“The employees of GTSOU in the most dangerous conditions continue to fulfill their professional duty for the country’s energy security, for millions of Ukrainians to have gas in their homes, and for critical infrastructure enterprises to work. I am sincerely grateful to all my colleagues for their work, bravery, and professionalism during this time of war. During these months, the Kharkiv MPLPD repeatedly demonstrated extraordinary resilience and courage, fulfilling the tasks of high complexity in risky conditions. I am proud of my colleagues and I am sure that together we will cope with all the challenges and trials,” said Sergiy Makogon.
