In Dobrogea, E-Distributie has planned for 2021 investments of 176 million lei (35.7 million euro) in the modernization and digitalization of electricity grids. Out of this amount, 22 million lei are allocated for modernization/construction works of medium voltage lines and substations, and 35 million lei for modernization/construction works of low voltage lines.
Currently, to assure the electricity supply in good conditions to customers in Constanța and Slobozia, the company is modernizing two transformer stations; also, both substations at the Eforie Nord transformation station were replaced with some with a higher power, of 40MVA, to ensure the connection to the grid of the new consumers in the South part of Constanța County. In Călărași County, works are being carried out to improve the low voltage lines, to the benefit of consumers in Oltenița and Nicolae Bălcescu.
The value of this year’s electricity grids modernization and maintenance programs is added to the investments of 1.49 billion lei, made in total by E-Distribuţie Dobrogea in the period 2006 – 2020.
