The localities of Hudum, Mănăstirea Doamnei and Agafton, which belong to Curtești commune (Botoșani county), benefit from natural gas supply since the end of last year, as a result of the public-private partnership between the local authorities and the operator of the distribution network Delgaz Grid. More than 2.5 million lei were invested in the establishment of the natural gas network in the three localities, approximately 11 kilometers long.
The next stage that the residents of Hudum, Mănăstirea Doamnei and Agafton, respectively the institutions and companies in the area, have to go through is the realization of individual connections, according to the company’s press release.
“Almost half of the value of the investment in the Curtești commune was the contribution of the Delgaz Grid company. The three newly established distributions in Botoșani county are part of the 14 made during the past year based on the partnerships concluded with the local authorities”, says Cristian Ifrim, deputy general director of Delgaz Grid.
“The association with the Delgaz Grid company was impactful, and now the gas network is no longer just a project on paper, but has become a reality. Soon, the entire community in the area will feel the benefits of natural gas supply”, said Maricel Anton, the mayor of Curtești commune.
In 2023, Delgaz Grid established 14 natural gas distributions, the total length of the constructed network exceeding 110 km. The largest natural gas distribution among the 14 established in 2023 in partnership with local authorities is the one in Toplița municipality (Harghita county), with a length of 35 kilometers.
