Companies E.ON Energie Romania and Samus TEC Dej have concluded a strategic partnership worth around EUR 1 million under which one of the most important systems in Romania for the generation of photovoltaic energy will be implemented. Therefore, E.ON will install 3,360 photovoltaic modules on the roof of a hall in Dej, on an area of approximately 10,000 sq. m. The benefits of the project do not resume to the quantity of electricity produced from solar power and taken over for self-consumption; they also mean environmental protection, by reducing pollution. Annually, the Dej-based company will reduce CO2 emissions by over 394 tons and radioactive waste – by 3.75 kg.
E.ON will build a photovoltaic plant with an installed power of 1,250 kWp that will produce around 1,250 MW of electricity from renewable sources per year. In this way, the company Samus TEC, one of the main players in the construction market in Romania, ensures annually 8-10% of its electricity needs.
“Each new partnership for photovoltaic power generating systems motivates us to move further on the road of sustainability. It is a road we have assumed, and we know that the future can only be designed from this perspective. Therefore, we want our solutions for the production of green energy to be implemented to as many partners as possible,” said Catalin Iordache, Managing Director of E.ON Energie Romania.
“We have continuously invested in modern technological equipment, with integrated production flows, able to make products at international standards and environmentally friendly. Therefore, investment in a photovoltaic park is a natural step aimed to streamline our own production processes, by cutting electricity costs and being an integral part of the European and national effort to create a greener future,” mentioned Ioan Tecar, CEO of Samus TEC.
From 2018 to date, E.ON has developed over 120 projects of solar power production for customers in various sectors of the economy. About 25,000 photovoltaic panels have already been installed for 58 companies in the most performing industries. With the completion of the projects currently under development, the total photovoltaic power production will reach 30,000 MWh per year and CO2 emissions will be reduced by 8,800 tons per year.

About Samus TEC
Samus Constructii was created in 1991 by the spin-off from Trustul de Constructii Cluj and in 1999 was bought by Ioan Tecar. The basic activity of the company was construction works, concrete and concrete components production.
In 2007 Samus Constructii purchased a concrete production unit and an asphalt production unit which combine advanced production technologies and ensure a low energy consumption – investment of approximately 2 million euros. There were also acquired transportation machines specific to developed activities (agitating truck, caterpillar, dumper, backhoe etc.)
At the end of 2015, the entire construction activity of the company was taken over by the new created company Samus Tec SA.
The most recent investment is the Precast Concrete Factory, started in 2017, with its two sections, the concrete precast and steel moulding one.
