All Enel distribution companies in Romania have adopted the E-Distribuție name, after Enel Distributie Banat and Enel Distribuție Dobrogea changed their names to E-Distribuție Banat and E-Distributie Dobrogea, respectively. E-Distributie Muntenia was the first of the Enel distribution operators in Romania to adopt its new name, recently.
The name changes of the distribution operators are in line with EU and national regulations which require integrated energy companies to ensure the legal, functional and accounting separation of the distribution operations from the supply and production activities, including the name and visual identities, in order to prevent confusion on the consumers’ side and therefore to stimulate market competition.
Both companies have conducted significant investment projects in the past few years such as a broad modernisation of the medium voltage network in the Danube Delta biosphere, including a new 20 kV line, overhead and underground, of a total length of approx. 9.2 km, the upgrades in Constanta County to enhance the safety of electricity supply for key strategic consumers: the Mihail Kogalniceanu airport, military units, headquarters of the Romanian Air Traffic Service Administration and water pumps, an upgrade of the Mircea Voda primary station (high/medium voltage) in Calarasi County, an investment of about RON 8 million, the modernisation of the Neptun primary station (high/medium voltage) – total investment of over RON 12 million, the upgrade of the high/medium voltage Marmura substation, located in Tulcea, following an investment project worth RON 11.4 million, the modernisation of Balta Sarata (high/medium voltage) primary station in Caransebeş, estimated at RON 2.65 million, a modernization program for the low voltage and public lighting networks in several areas in Timisoara and an upgrade of the (high/medium voltage) Câlnic in Resita, in a RON 5.2 million investment project.
