South-Korean conglomerate Samsung is keen to erect solar farms in Romania and looks into such investment opportunities in Giurgiu County, Park Robyug, energy and resources ambassador at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said yesterday. Samsung is examining two Giurgiu County solar farm locations Robyug told a renewable energy conference in Bucharest. The two projects add up to an installed capacity of 45 MW.
