The future of supplying the population in the major cities of Romania is with the modular power plants, of about 50 MW, smaller than the current power plants, which will reduce the massive losses in the distribution networks, said Doru Visan, State Secretary at the Ministry of Energy.
„The Ministry of Energy has received grants from the Government of Japan, which has done feasibility studies in Bucharest and Constanta, studies that are particularly valuable and show another approach that the Government hopes to promote. It is a modular approach, in the sense that the technology has evolved to put modules dimensioned at the same yield values and capacity values of around 50 MW,” Visan said.
„The studies have also analyzed the type of injection and the location where it should be done to mitigate these losses, and the technical solution. Once promoted and proven efficient, this modular approach lends itself to the major cities of the country, such as Bucharest, Constanta, Timisoara, Arad, Drobeta Turnu Severin, Râmnicu Vâlcea and Craiova. We have to attract European funds for these systems, but we must also attract private equity funds. Fortunately, there is a lot of interest in this area,” the state secretary added, according to Agerpres.
According to him, district heating systems all over the country, mostly unmoderned and in a very difficult financial situation, summ up debts of 9.5 billion lei, of which 62% to the state budget and 23% to fuel suppliers.
