Romania to Supply 90% of Moldova's Electricity Needs
Romania is set to supply Moldova with 90% of its electricity needs after the Russia-backed separatist region of Transnistria cut off Moldova proper from the Cuciurgan thermal power plant, located in Dnestrovsc.
Romania is now the only major source of electricity for Moldova, according to Victor Bânzari, the head of Energocom, the country's electric utilities company.
"The entire amount of energy is procured from Romania, including the amount used to cover the deficit. We have signed contracts with OMV Petrom and Nuclearelectrica. [...] It's the first time that we buy such a large amount of energy from Romania," Bânzari said, cited by Digi24.
Moldova has not received any electricity from the Cuciurgan thermal power plant since November 1.
