"A vital offsite electricity supply to the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant has been destroyed by shelling and there is little likelihood a reliable supply will be re-established, the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog chief has said.

Rafael Grossi, the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said shelling had destroyed the switchyard of a nearby thermal power plant."

Offsite power was lost again yesterday, but the plant is now reconnected to the grid, according to the Director General of the IAEA.

Our team at #Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant informed me this morning that the plant has lost all of its external power for the 2nd time in five days. Its back-up diesel generators are now providing electricity for its nuclear safety and security functions.

This repeated loss of #ZNPP ’s off-site power is a deeply worrying development and it underlines the urgent need for a nuclear safety & security protection zone around the site.
