Romania to build new hydroelectric plant on Danube River

Romania will choose by the end of the year the location for having a new hydroelectric plant built on the Danube River, Economy Minister Adriean Videanu said.
Several locations will be considered such as Macin (Tulcea county – east) or Turnu Magurele (Teleorman County, south).
Macin would be the most efficient location because it also increases the Danube’s navigability potential, reads the Business Standard daily quoting Minister Videanu as saying also specifying that it had been already initiated talks about the project with the Bulgarian officials.
The new hydro-power plant might supply about 2,400 MW and the project will be achieved together with private investors, Minister Videanu also told the above-mentioned newspaper.
Romania also holds on the Danube the hydroelectric plant of Portile de Fier (the Iron Gates) located 15 km upstream of Drobeta Turnu Severin (west) the biggest on the river and one of the biggest in Europe.
The Iron Gates I started operating in 1971 and is exploited in partnership with Serbia, and its installed power after being upgraded amounts to round 1,450 MW.
The Iron Gates II – the hydro-power plant operating in waterfall with the Iron Gates I – was constructed over 1977 – 1984 and has an installed power of 810 MW.
