We have constantly ensured the personnel for maintaining the vital nuclear safety functions, the efficient operation as well as support functions, we continued the company's internal projects in the area of recruitment and retention of highly qualified personnel, as well as of innovation by analyzing various new business opportunities: small modular reactors, the production of Cobalt-60 and green hydrogen," said Nuclearelectrica CEO Cosmin Ghita. The inclusion of SNN in the London market's FTSE Russell index as of September 2020 was a positive signal to the capital market, with a maturation effect for both the local stock exchange and the SNN shares. "In 2020 we relied on the previously acquired resilience, as we sought to send to our shareholders and investors a signal of confidence and efficient management of the company amid a difficult national and international context," Ghita added.
