"Beyond the results, ten years in Romania means building a solid business and a continuously contribution to support the local industry. During this time, we tried to educate a market oriented towards price and to offer solutions that could reduce the total cost of operation, that offer high safety standards and, in the same time, protect the environment. Thus, we managed to become important suppliers in the main economic sectors in Romania, that have the biggest contributions to the local GDP", said Tivadar Szondi, Regional General Manager of Atlas Copco Romania.
Thus, systems provided by Atlas Copco equip the production lines of the two automobile factories and all tire production lines in Romania, and are also installed in the modernization processes, including hydroelectric power plants in Romania. One of the largest projects implemented locally, worth several million euro, was to modernize through a turnkey project of two natural gas compressor stations for a local operator. The result is an energy saving of 220 kW/h, equivalent to the consumption of 720 households.
