The project envisages the modernisation of the 20 generation units of the power plants located on the Olt river, in southwestern Romania, the company said in a statement. Seven of those units have been upgraded so far.

As a result of the upgrade, the installed capacity of each of the plants will rise to 57 megawatt (MW) from 53 MW now, it added.
