Today, in Washington, Romania and the United States sign an agreement of eight billion dollars for the modernization of the Cernavoda nuclear power plant.
One reactor will be upgraded and two more will be built. The news was given by Ambassador Adrian Zuckerman, who is with the Romanian delegation, conform AlephNews.
The Dăncilă government also had big plans, namely to expand with China the power plant that supplies 20% of the electricity used in Romania.
Also, on the military level, we tick a success – the Minister of Defense, Nicolae Ciucă, was received last night at the Pentagon by his American counterpart Mark Esper. Ciuca was greeted with an increased guard of honor. This, in the context in which the United States has two military bases in our country.
Last night, Romania and the USA signed a ten-year plan for cooperation in the field of defense, in Washington DC. Pentagon chief Mark Esper said Romania is an example for NATO.
The Cernavoda power plant, the only source of nuclear energy in Romania
The struggle to become a zero-carbon country is a difficult one. One of the most important elements would be the Cernavoda Nuclear Power Plant itself, at least in terms of electricity production.
The production of electricity can affect the environment, depending on the source used. There are some that are more polluting and others that are less polluting. In Romania, one of the most important sources of electricity production is nuclear energy.
The good part is that this type of energy is recognized as one of the most useful in the fight against climate change, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. In Romania, the only nuclear power plant in our country, the one in Cernavoda, does all the work.
