20 May 2021, 05:51
PSE immediately balanced the system among others by starting up generators at pumped storage power stations, activating spinning reserves at other power stations, and emergency support from TSOs of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Germany. Polish Power System is in a stable operation now.
PGE GiEK and PSE’s experts cooperated in order to restore the operation of Belchatow generating units and reconnect them to the power system. The most likely cause of the disruption was a short circuit. Underlying causes of the incident are the subject of ongoing investigation. Further information will be published on PSE’s website.
