The Ministry of Economy and Industry of Bulgaria said Acting Minister Nikola Stoyanov met with owner and Chief Executive Officer of profine Group Peter Mrosik and the Chairman of the Board of Wirth Gruppe, Markus Wirth. The two German companies recently established a joint venture called profine Energy.

At the time, profine Group and Wirth said the new energy service provider would develop, build and operate photovoltaic and wind parks, battery systems and biomass facilities.
