Romania must have nuclear power and will have at least one new group – says State Secretary of the Ministry of Energy, Doru Visan.
It is, for the first time, the Ministry speaks of a possible own approach, apart from the deal with the Chinese company CGN, in the Cernavoda nuclear project. “From my point of view, the nuclear power is growing. Either in the current version or in another approach – any of which is beneficial – we must further develop at least one or two nuclear capacities in Romania ….
The materialization of the negotiation (with the Chinese at CGN) if done, will be extraordinary. If it does not materialize, there are studies … and there will be at least one capacity,” Visan said. As for the CGN project, he said: “If we create an investment framework, I do not think it will not be done. I wanted to emphasize the need to further promote nuclear energy in Romania, that the basic energy we need.”
