The Adrem Entrepreneurial Group celebrates 30 years of activity and impact in the energy industry this month. For 30 years, Adrem has been contributing to the development of the global metals industry, to the development of the energy industry, and to Romania’s energy transition, with a long-term commitment to the fight against climate change, to sustainable development and to supporting our country in its transition towards a society that is more responsible towards people, the environment we live in and the resources we use.
Adrem was founded in 1992 by Adrian Bodea, who set out with the dream of re-technologizing the Romanian industry and was joined by his brother Corneliu Bodea, who is today CEO of the Adrem Group. Together through thick and thin, the two brothers have taken Adrem to the top of the metalworking and energy industries, playing a defining role in the energy transition, supporting the transition from an outdated fossil fuel-based system to a modern, sustainable, efficient, and automated system.
“I am glad that after 30 years, I can say that I have fulfilled my dream. We have brought innovation to the market, contributed to the development of our economy and society, and helped modernize the metallurgical and energy system in the countries where we operate. We are proud, excited, and at the same time grateful for everything we have done so far with care and respect for the environment and communities. I hope that in the next 30 years, through everyone’s involvement, we will see a sustainable industry, a cleaner environment, a greener future, and a thriving planet that we can leave to our children,” said Adrian Bodea, founder of Adrem.
We are grateful for the past 30 years and confident for the next 30
Since 1992, Adrem has been supplying degassing plants and metallurgical equipment globally, with over 50% market share in the field, operating on four continents. The company currently has over 40 degassing plants and over 300 pieces of metallurgical equipment in its portfolio, as well as a unique patented liquid steel vacuum technology.
Adrem’s portfolio also includes some of the largest energy security projects in Romania and the region: the automation of the BRUA (Bulgaria-Romania-Hungary-Austria) gas pipeline; the automation of the DN600 Ungheni – Chisinau gas pipeline, which has proved vital in the current context of military conflict in the region; and the automation of the new bi-directional Isaccea natural gas metering station, capable of importing and exporting natural gas from Ukraine to Bulgaria and vice versa. Smart grid digitization, renewable energy, and e-mobility projects remain a priority for the coming years and Adrem’s contribution to Romania’s development.

It offers products, services, and solutions for energy efficiency and smart consumption dedicated to the energy sector.
“The real challenge facing mankind today is the fight against climate change, which must be supported by a change of mindset about energy, its importance, and how we should produce and consume it. Adrem plays a key role in preparing Romania for the energy transition and in changing the mentality towards sustainable consumption. That is why, in the long term, we are committed to sustainable development and to supporting Romania in the energy transition, with a focus on the fight against climate change, respect for the environment and our society, for a cleaner planet”, added Corneliu Bodea, CEO of Adrem.
