The new combined cycle and renewable production capacities of CE Oltenia will be ready in 2026, said the state secretary Dan Dragan, during the Energy Day-Brașov conference, organized by Repom and Patres.

CE Oltenia is preparing two new combined cycle capacities in Ișalnița and Turceni – of over 1.2 GW and at the same time, it is considering the completion of renewable energy capacities of over 700 MW on the ash deposits.

“We want both the gas and the renewable part to be put into operation in 2026,” said Dan Dragan.

Lăcrămioara Diaconu-Pinţea, member of the Board of Directors of CE Oltenia, recently mentioned that in the company’s restructuring plan there are elements aimed at the decarbonization process by making investments in production capacities.

“We have included a very clear element in the restructuring plan that we have proposed to the European Commission – the decarbonisation plan and which is related to these new investments that we are talking about. There are 2,000 MW that would be installed, of which 1,300 on gas in two combined cycle power plants – one in Turceni, one in Işalniţa. About 700 MW will be in photovoltaic projects on sites that are now related to coal. Either we are talking about waste dumps or we are talking about slag and ash deposits. Both types of projects use existing sites – which means, in practice, ensuring a future for those locations,” said the member of the Board of Directors of CE Oltenia.
