Romania: Doubts arise over Transelectrica’s possible uncompetitive practices in auctions

Transelectrica SA is not investigated in the Competition Council inquiry regarding a possible set up of public auctions organized by the company, but collaborates with the Competition Council’s authority as a company that sized upon the possible uncompetitive practice, bringing all the necessary documents for the inquiry, says Transelectrica.

The Competition council announced this Thursday the development of an inquiry regarding the possible uncompetitive practices in the case of two auctions organized by Transelectrica, for the assignment of some modernization and retechnologization works on two transformation units.

„Transelectrica is not a company investigated in the Competition Council inquiry, on the contrary, Transelectrica acted in the good faith of the own funds administration and the correct development of the auctions, based on the competition principles,” says  a release of the company.

According to the source, in 2016 Transelectrica developed almost at the same time two auctions regarding the retechnologization and modernization of two electric transformation units.  Both procedures had as assignment criteria the lowest price and the final phase of development- electronic phase.

Within the auction, the offers came from Smart SA, with subcontractor Energotech SA, and Energobit SA, in association with ELM Electromontaj Cluj SA.
