ArcelorMittal Galaţi has challenged in court the auction to decide the Bulgaria-Romania-Hungary-Austria (BRHA) gas pipeline, after being eliminated due to the lack of a document, the steel plant’s Director General, Bruno Robi, has said.
He said the plant still hopes to take part to the project. “A document has been missing, we didn’t realise and we had no more time to submit it. It’s a formal matter,” Ribo said.
He claims the document is not relevant, capital.ro informs.
“It was our error somehow, but it was a formal matter. We are bringing in court this issue, we are capable to produce. It would be abnormal that public money, European funding to finance a project to be completed using thick sheet metal produced in China. It’s something never heard of. Romanians pay taxes and these taxes would support jobs in China,” the ArcellorMittal official said, according to capital.ro.
He added that the missing document is in fact a statement that there is no conflict between the steel plant and the new CEO of Transgaz.
