Once again, GasNet is helping Ukraine repair its energy infrastructure


#novinka  #tisková zpráva 
Ukrainian gas workers have received a third package of technological humanitarian aid from GasNet, the Czech Republic’s largest gas distributor. The aid is aimed at helping Ukraine restore its damaged energy infrastructure.


"We want to help the people of Ukraine in these difficult times. That’s why, as gas workers, we have decided to provide further technological aid to our Ukrainian colleagues. Our aid will help them repair Ukraine’s damaged energy infrastructure. We are gas workers helping gas workers," says Petr Koutný, GasNet's Network Operations Director.

GasNet coordinated its aid deliveries closely with the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine and the Ukraine Support Task Force of the Energy Community Secretariat (ECS-USTF). The twenty tonnes of specialised gas equipment have already been delivered to 11 distribution system operators in Kharkiv, Mykolaiv, Sumy, Chernihiv, Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhzhya Oblasts. “This will contribute to the repair and restoration of energy supplies to Ukrainian consumers. The Ministry of Energy of Ukraine extends its sincere gratitude to GasNet for the humanitarian aid it has provided to Ukraine,“ said Svitlana Grynchuk, Deputy Minister of The Ministry of Energy of Ukraine.

ECS-USTF helped deliver the equipment to Ukrainian gas distribution networks by channelling GasNet’s offer through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM). “This has been the third time we have assisted GasNet with a donation to support Ukraine’s gas sector. We are grateful for the efficient working partnership with our colleagues in GasNet and we stand ready to channel additional, badly needed, equipment following the largest attacks so far on Ukrainian energy infrastructure. The operation was carried out via UCPM and coordinated by the Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC) of DG ECHO. We are grateful to our existing partners for their support, and we are ready to channel further assistance to ensure the security of basic energy services in Ukraine,” says Ádám Balogh, Head of the Ukraine Support Task Force Unit of the Energy Community Secretariat.

In the first shipment in 2023, GasNet donated seven vehicles and specialised gas equipment from its inventory. Further assistance followed during that year. In addition, GasNet and its employees provided over CZK 2.5 million of financial support to the people of Ukraine in 2022 through the humanitarian organisation People in Need. GasNet employees also helped to commission a refugee hostel in Prague.
