Two energy companies from Romania want to invest EUR 400 million in constructing photovoltaic parks.
OMV Petrom and Complexul Energetic Oltenia announced four projects totalling 400 million euros that call for constructing photovoltaic panels on the sites of several former mines that have been exploited in Romania.
In December 2021, OMV Petrom was designated as the selected investor for these projects at the end of a selection procedure organized by CE Oltenia. The total investments required for developing the four photovoltaic parks amount to over 400 million euros, about 70% being financed by the Modernization Fund.OMV Petrom
