Historical record on energy consumption in Bucharest

Marţi, 24 iulie 2007, 0:00

Due to excessive temperatures, energy consumption in Bucharest registered historic records of 959 MW, 50% more than a usual day, Finance Minister Varujan Vosganian said in a press conference on Tuesday.

Moreover, Vosganian announced that consumption on Tuesday might be higher than the record.

Consumption grew because of the extensive use of AC systems and the Minister announced that in Bucharest, energy will be interrupted for 10 to 15 minutes to discharge the transformers.

On Monday, 13 of such controlled blackouts were signaled in the capital city.

The electricity production is normal, and the reactor in the nuclear plant of Cernavoda will not be shut down.

Vosganian explained that water debit necessary for cooling down the reactors are bigger than in August 2003, when Cernavoda had to be shut down for a couple of days, due to severe drought.

Plus, electricity costs will not raise as the supplementary costs of production are supported by the national energy system.

The main measure taken to assure enough energy for the population is to reduce by 20% the energy quantity delivered to the big consumers through contracts.
