NEC LOSES BGN140,000 FROM THEFTS
The National Electricity Company (NEC) reported it has lost over BGN140,000 because of stolen high voltage wires by the middle of November. The biggest number of violations has been registered in the Sofia area. More steel elements have been stolen from the pylons lately because of the increased iron prices. Violations have been reported in the areas of Pernik, Radomir, Blagoevgrad, Montana, and Vratsa. Profiles and elements stolen from the Lyulin-Rudartsi conduit alone exceed 10 tons, NEC officials claim.
