“As the combined cycle power plant with gas turbines made by SNGN Romgaz in Iernut is an investment that contributes to achieving the strategic objectives regarding energy security, sustainable development and increasing competitiveness, it is imperative to change the provisions of GD no. 1096/2013, regarding the maximum term of commissioning of an investment financed from the PNI funds, in order to allow the further application of the provisions of the Financing Contract no. 4/2017, so that the investment from Iernut will benefit from non-reimbursable financing from PNI ”, according to the Ministry of Economy.

The investment “Cycle combined with gas turbines – Iernut”, realized by SNGN Romgaz, has a non-reimbursable financing value of about 321 million lei. It consists of building of a 430 MW combined cycle plant with gas turbines, whose execution contract is a “turnkey” type (EPC – design, execution, commissioning).
