EVN Bulgaria, local subsidiary of Austrian EVN, said that its electricity distribution subsidiary Power Distribution South inaugurated a new dispatching center in Plovdiv following the investment of 2 million euros.

The statement from the company said that the new facility, which will be used for monitoring, control and management of the electricity distribution network in the southeastern part of Bulgaria, is one of the company’s most important investments in modern technologies and infrastructure for improved security of electricity supply and efficient dispatching of energy.

Regional Manager at EVN Bulgaria Alexander Sipek said that, with this new dispatching center, EVN Bulgaria will also be able to meet the needs of the growing number of renewable energy facilities which require flexible dispatching due to the volatility of their production. The construction of the new dispatching center in Plovdiv was launched in December 2019.
