Cave to get four excavators, 130 generators from US to fight blackout
Kyiv has received machinery and generators from the United States to help improve the city’s electrical infrastructure amid severe power shortages across the country.
Ukrainian capital Vitaly Klitschko said Kyiv “received machines and generators from the US government for the operation of boilers and heat distribution stations”.
The USAID-led Energy Security Project provided four bulldozers and more than 130 generators to rebuild Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, Klitschko said in a Telegram. All equipment was free.
The excavators “have already been delivered and will be put to work soon,” the mayor said.
The new equipment will allow officials to “excavate soil quickly and efficiently so that emergency operations can be completed quickly,” he said.
The generators were sent to boiler rooms, combined heat and power plants and heat distribution stations.
“This year, 11 kilometers of heating networks damaged by rocket attacks have been replaced,” Klitschko added.
