Visegrád countries to break up joint electricity organization
The electricity transmission system operators of the Visegrád countries (Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland) have agreed to dissolve CENTREL, the Prague-based group of their four operators, at the end of this year, Hungary's power grid operator Mavir Zrt said in a statement on Thursday.
The four member operating companies decided at a meeting on Wednesday to create joint agendas through regular meetings in the future, the statement said. CENTREL, set up in 1992, has accomplished its goals and such an organization is no longer necessary either within the European Union or Union for the Co-ordination of Transmission of Electricity (UCTE), it said. The primary aim of CENTREL had been to gradually join its members up to the UCTE, which secures safe electricity supplies and sets quality of service standards, and this goal was accomplished in 2001, the statement said.
