A pair of storks will nest in safetly in Sîntu, Mureș County

Last year a tragedy ocurred in Sîntu, Mureș County. A summer storm devastated the entire area and the nest took fire after being hit by a lightning. At the end of the summer, the birds started to construct a nest on a nearby pole, kind of signaling us where they want their new home. Than, they started the long journey to Africa. Călin Sîrbu, a stork lover got in touch with us to help the birds, and Milvus Group provided Electrica a special support design by us. The device was mounted recently, just in time for the storks to find a home at their return. We thank all those that helped the story to have a happy end. Continue reading
