After nearly 20 years of successful cooperation on construction and commissioning the thermal power plant Plomin 2 in Istria, the European energy giant RWE Energie has ended its strategic partnership with HEP in the TE Plomin d.o.o. on 28th of May, 2015. On this date the BOT (Build-Own-Transfer) contract, signed by the two parties in 1996, expired, thereby transferring the thermal power plant Plomin 2 into 100 percent ownership of HEP.
“RWE was the first large investor that came to Croatia, immediately after the war, in a moment when Croatia needed a reliable and serious strategic partner to realize such a large and complex project. Our cooperation in Plomin is one of the most successful stories of strategic partnership in Southeastern Europe. We believe that we shall continue to successfully cooperate with HEP in the new joint company, Novenerg,” stated Karl Kraus, the president of the Board of RWE Hrvatska.
