Romanian Electroprecizia, a manufacturer of electrical equipment, plans to invest EUR 3 million in building a hydroelectric plant in the Brasov County, which would cover more than half of the group’s electricity consumption.
The Electroprecizia plant will be located at the base of the Tarlung-Sacele dam, replacing a former plant closed in the 60’s. The Romanian company will also replace the pipe that connects the water treatment plant is Sacele city with the Tarlung dam, which supplies drinkable water to 300,000 people.
“We started in 2012 a project that will create new jobs, protect the current jobs at Electroprecizia and protect the environment and increase the security of the drinkable water supply,” said Dumitru Matei, general director Electroprecizia.
“It will allow us to cover between 60 to 70 percent of the Electroprecizia group’s electricity consumption.”
Radu Nistor, mayor of Sacele city, said the investment will increase the transport conditions for drinkable water to Sacele’s citizens.
Electroprecizia’s project is part of a regional development plant managed by the ETREC Cluster, which includes the Brasov County Council, the Sacele town hall, the Transilvania University and the Brasov Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Electroprecizia has over 1,300 employees. The company exports 90 percent of its production.
