Energy Community: First shipment of emergency repair equipment leaves for Ukraine

Two trucks loaded with urgently needed equipment for the repair of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, donated by the Hungarian MOL Group, have left the Hungarian town of Százhalombatta. 

The materials, worth around €135,000, include pipes, valves, cables, insulators, welding electrodes and more. The shipment was coordinated by the Energy Community Secretariat’s Task Force on Ukraine Support (USTF).

“Help like this is crucial for Ukrainian energy companies to prepare for the winter, and repair the damages caused by the latest wave of attacks,” said Ádám Balogh, Lead of the Secretariat’s Ukraine Support Task Force.

He added that the Energy Community continues to organise shipments from all over Europe and beyond: “So far, we have delivered 26 shipments to Ukraine and 21 more are under preparation. Donations from other sectors such as the manufacturing and automotive industry will also be crucial, so that Ukrainian people can cope with the extreme difficulties of the coming winter.”

Companies in the manufacturing, construction and automotive industry can also provide crucially needed assistance in the form of tools, vehicles and materials. The process is simple and burden-free for companies. The USTF coordinates the entire donation process, including the door-to-door delivery of donated items with transport provided at no cost thanks to the European Commission’s Emergency Response Coordination Centre.
