euractiv | Nuclear plant loses power line as Moscow, [NATO] energy row escalates

A critical nuclear power plant in Ukraine again lost external power, international energy officials said on Saturday (3 September), heightening concerns as the energy battle between Moscow and [NATO] ramped up in recent days amid the ongoing war.
Only one of the six reactors remained in operation at the station, the agency said in a statement posted on its website.
Last week, Zaporizh* [oblast? city? NPP?] was severed from the national grid for the first time [nope] in its history after transmission lines were cut [HOW?], prompting power cuts across Ukraine, although emergency generators kicked for vital cooling processes.

Meanwhile, the IAEA on Saturday said remaining inspectors noted one reactor was "still operating and producing electricity both for cooling and other essential safety functions at the site and for households, factories and others through the grid."...

I will be surprised if the Grossi does not receive a Bachelet treatment and IAEA field conclusions are not revised a week later by IEA plant monitors.
