Romania to open special trade floor for large power users.

By bne IntelliNews September 3, 2012
Romania's electricity market operator OPCOM has been in discussions with interested players to setup a special power trading platform for large industrial end-users, Adevarul daily reported. The new trading floor would operate as part of the existing bilateral contracts market PCCB operated by OPCOM. The electricity traded on this new floor would be aimed solely at the end-users - and not for further re-sale. We recall that some large end-user consumers operate also as electricity traders after they had initially registered as traders to fulfill their own needs only. OPCOM has invited for discussion on this issue large end-users including oil and gas companies OMV Petrom, Rompetrol and Oltchim; aluminium producer Alro Slatina; steel groups ArcelorMittal, Mechel and Ductil; chemical plants Azomures and Chimcomplex; cement producers Carpatcement, Holcim Romania and Lafarge Ciment Romania; and transport company Metrorex.
