Electric Bus to Mátra Power Plant Tested
Mátra Power Plant
An electric bus transporting workers will be put into test operation in the area of the Mátra Power Plant, State Secretary Responsible for Energy Attila Steiner announced at a press event presenting the vehicle in front of the power plant, according to profitline.hu.
Steiner emphasized that the power plant is one of the pillars of Hungary's electricity supply.
The government, therefore, decided, in response to the energy crisis, to authorize the MVM group, including the Visonta company, to increase lignite-based electricity production.
The purpose of the decision is to make locally produced electricity available in Hungary as much as possible, he said.
At the same time, the cabinet has not given up on the plan to modernize the power plant.
It is an essential aspect of energy supply and security that the facility has a long-term vision for the future, Steiner said, adding that the work started for this purpose is "progressing unabated."
