The relevant Memorandum of Cooperation was signed on 11 June at the annual Ukraine Recovery Conference in Berlin.

Ukrhydroenergo and AECOM will cooperate in the implementation of projects to restore the destroyed hydroelectric power generation

The Memorandum outlines the intentions to implement projects aimed at supporting the rehabilitation and reconstruction of hydropower facilities. According to the memorandum, AECOM will act as a technical consultant for the restoration of Ukraine's hydropower infrastructure.

Due to the constant shelling of energy facilities by the russian federation, Ukraine's power system has suffered critical damage and capacity losses. That is why the cooperation between Ukrhydroenergo and AECOM is important in restoring Ukraine's fuel and energy sector.

"AECOM has many years of professional experience in the development, design and reconstruction of hydropower facilities and dams around the world. Our partnership and cooperation will be another important step in the restoration of Ukraine's damaged energy infrastructure in general and hydropower generation in particular, ” said Ihor Syrota, CEO of Ukrhydroenergo. “Today, the restoration, protection and preparation of energy facilities for winter remain a priority for Ukraine. I am grateful to the international partners who are involved in the recovery. This will speed up the recovery process. ”

In addition, the signing of the memorandum will help create incentives and guarantees at the state level to attract investment and innovative technologies in the energy sector.

“We are honored to partner with Ukrhydroenergo as we extend our role in supporting the reconstruction of Ukraine’s critical infrastructure,” said Troy Rudd, AECOM’s chief executive officer. “Hydropower is vital to Ukraine's energy supply, and our decades of expertise in this key renewable energy source positions us to support the nation in delivering and sustaining resilient electricity to millions. As leaders in the dams and reservoirs sectors, our teams look forward to bringing the necessary energy advisory and disaster recovery skills to meet Ukrhydroenergo’s complex hydropower objectives.”
