Nuclearelectrica, the operator of Romania's sole nuclear power plant (NPP) Cernavoda, said on Wednesday it has signed a preliminary investors agreement (PIA) with two Chinese companies for the construction of Units 3 and 4 at the NPP.

The preliminary agreement signed with China General Nuclear Power Corporation (CGN) and CGN Central and Eastern Europe Investment (CEERI) envisages the establishment of the project company (JVCO) which will be the only technical and operational platform for the subsequent development of the project, Nuclearelectrica said in a press release.

 

The deadline for the set-up of the JVCO is 60 working days from the date of signing of the preliminary agreement.

 

The JVCO is a joint stock company that will exist for at least two years. CGN will have a stake of 51% in the project company, while Nuclearelectrica will have 49%.

Daily (17.07.2019): NBP spot plunged by over 16% on Tuesday, due to ample oversupply

Crude oil prices dipped on Tuesday, after data showed that U.S. crude inventories dropped less than expected last week, as they were only slightly affected by disruptions in the wake of Hurricane Barry in the Gulf of Mexico. Prices were also influenced by the conflicting signals from Tehran and Washington about an alleged reduction of tensions over Iran’s ballistic missile program, as well as by China’s weakest economic growth in 27 years. As a result, Brent crude tumbled by 3.2% to $64.35 a barrel, while WTI futures slumped by 3.3% to $57.62 a barrel.
