In the first half of this month, the state-owned energy enterprise recorded the highest levels in the past nine years in terms of daily production, exceeding 70 GWh. In 2005 when Hidroelectrica recorded a similar perfomance, the company’s annual production came to 20.1 TWh.
”The largest quantity of electric power was produced and delivered between 13 and 15 May 2014. On the morning of 15 May 2014, Hidroelectrica secured over 60 percent of national energy consumption”, the company announced in a press release.
For the current year, the hydroelectric energy producer has forecasted a production of 13.9 TWh, which has been already fully contracted. Estimations are based on the weather forecast which announces a dry year with rainfalls and flows below the annual average. In an average flow year, the state-owned enterprise, which is Romania’s main electricity producer and supplier, records an annual production of 17 TWh.
