Representatives of the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF), the majority shareholder in Termoelectrica, did not wish to comment this information and those of Termoelectrica and of the private investors could not be contacted for declarations, stressed the source.
State company Termoelectrica is seeking investors in the construction of greenfield groups of energy production with installed capacities between 700 MW and 900 MW each, at the power stations in Doicesti (south), Galati and Borzesti.
The new units are to be built by joint companies formed by Termoelectrica and private companies.
They will function as independent energy producers and the private investor will hold the majority share package.
For the project in Borzesti, the state company selected in the final stage of discussions Electrabel, CEZ and E.ON (Germany) and for the similar project in Galati CEZ and Gaz de France groups.
According to the newspaper for the project in Doicesti – even though an offer is yet to be selected – Russian Mechel group has the biggest chance in a competition against Electrabel.
Mechel holds in Romania the special steel plant in Targoviste (south), Mechel steel plant in Campia Turzii (center) and semi-fabricated steel products Ductil Steel from Buzau (east).
