Romania will start supplying electricity to the Republic of Moldova this night.
Romanian company Hidroelectrica, the main supplier of technological services required in the National Energy System of Romania, and Energocom, the central supplier of electricity to Moldova, have signed a contract to supply 100 MW, deschide.md reports.
Romanian Energy Minister Virgil Popescu said.
“Electricity for the Republic of Moldova! Hidroelectrica and Energocom, a company appointed by the Government of the Republic of Moldova, signed a contract today for the supply – 100 MW. This night begins the supply of electricity to the Republic of Moldova. We were, we are and we will be there for the citizens of Moldova,” Virgil Popescu posted on Facebook.
To come to Moldova's aid, the Romanian government approved an Extraordinary Resolution, which states that “electricity producers are obliged to conclude bilateral contracts within available volumes, primarily with traders/suppliers of electricity, appointed by the government.” Energocom is such company.
