Romanian Ministry of Energy announced that Romania has officially resumed talks with Chinese Huadian Engineering on the construction of a new 600 MW thermal power plant in Rovinari, within the Energy Complex Oltenia.
After the meeting with the Chinese delegation, Minister of Energy Toma Petcu said that discussion with the Chinese partners had entered a pace that did not seem to advance in the spirit in which the parties agreed. Negotiating teams had the last meeting almost a year ago, therefore he asked both the CEO of Huadian and the Ministry committee to look at the main points where the parties have not yet agreed and to organize this meeting in Bucharest to set an accelerated timetable for negotiations. Minister Petcu added that he wants the negotiations over TPP Rovinari to be completed by the end of this year, so the investment can begin.
