The tender books will be drafted by the end of October 2012. The two companies were set up earlier this year by merging the coal mines and coal-burning power plants controlled by the state. Hunedoara includes the viable brown-coal mines of CNH mining company plus Mintia and Paroseni power plants. Oltenia includes the three mining and electricity holdings Craiova, Turceni and Rovinari and the lignite mines of SNLO.
