Schneider Electric Romania, a subsidiary of French company Schneider Electric, announced in a press conference yesterday the launching in Romania of the Acti 9 – the safest, simplest and most efficient modular system for the end distribution of electricity for the applications located inside tertiary and industrial buildings. On this occasion, Saulo Spaolanse, the president of Schneider Electric Romania, explained that Romania is the first country of Eastern Europe where the company – which specialises at global scale in the management of energy and low-voltage modular systems – has launched this product. “If we analyse from a macroeconomic perspective, compared to the GDP, there are many investment opportunities. Romania is an emerging market which grows each year. Compared to other countries of the region, it has many renewable resources. When we consider the localisation, I have no doubt that future is very interesting,” Saulo Spaolanse added. He also said that Schneider Electric is set to expand its market share in Romania and may consider acquisitions in the Balkan country. The sysem launched by the company allows monitoring the power grid in any building. The Acti 9 device costs RON 270 for a 2-room apartment. According to Petre Butu, vice-president Power Division, Schneider Electric Romania, Acti 9 reduces by 40 pc the wiring time and, based on real-time data provided by electric circuits and panels, customers can truly adjust the consumption of electric charges, in order to cut costs and better manage the electricity.
Ready for charging electric vehicles
The company, which also specialises in the distribution of electricity and industrial automations, also announced that it is ready to deliver devices for charging electric cars.“We can deliver the electric devices. We are waiting for Renault to launch the electric car,” the president of Schneider Electric Romania added. Renault Romania signed last year agreements with Electrica, Schneider Electric and Siemens in view of developing – under partnership – the infrastructure needed by electric vehicles in Romania.
