As Musa Magomedov, the Director General of Avdiivka Coke Plant reported that for an hour the plant was in emergency shutdown mode on 6 March .
– There was a complete emergency stop due to the breakdown of the insulation of a cable, but within an hour we were able to start a gas-blowing machine №3 with a 2.5 megawatt generator and a soft starter and resumed the production of coke and our own generation, -Musa wrote on his Facebook.
Magomedov recalled that Avdeevka still remained without electricity.
In addition to damage to the power transmission line, Avdiivka Coke Plant also had encountered a restriction of electricity supply from Zuevska TPP.
