The National Uranium Company will merge with Nuclearelectrica
The Delegate Minister for Energy announced on Saturday that The National Uranium Company (CNU) will merge with the top electricity supplier.
“One of the things that I am concerned about is that we don’t depend on others in the end for Uranium. We will begin an assimilation project for CNU and Nuclearelectrica. Romania is the only EU country with a complete nuclear cycle, we don’t depend on anybody”, Razvan Nicolescu Explained.
The minister added that CNU will undergo a restructuring process.
“I’ve asked for a plan to reduce costs by 10-15 percent, but it will become a part of Nuclearelectrica. I want to keep the nuclear cycle complete, just like we have it now”, Nicolescu added.
