Head of Enel’s Romanian Units Dies After Falling From Building

The head of Enel SpA’s two Romanian units died after falling from the company’s building in Bucharest.

Matteo Cassani, the general manager of Enel Energie SA and Enel Energie Muntenia SA, was found dead today in front of the divisions’ headquarters, according to B1 TV broadcast from the incident site.

“Circumstances of this accident are still unknown and an internal investigation is ongoing,” the Enel’s units said in an e-mailed statement. Cassani had worked in Romania for 10 years on various management positions, it said.

Police are investigating a suicide jump as a possible cause of the death, B1 TV reported, without citing anyone.

Enel is planning to sell power-generation assets in eastern Europe, including those in Romania, to cut its debt. State-owned companies Nuclearelectrica SA and Electrica SA said they may bid for the Romanian assets.
