Transnistria: Combined Heat and Power Plant in Tiraspol

On Thursday I got two postcards: one from Transnistria and one from Kyrgyzstan.

The card from Transnistria shows the Combined Heat and Power Plant in Tiraspol. The Combined Heat and Power Plant is the largest power generation project utilizing renewable energy sources in the whole of Moldova. It is in use since 2008 and fully covers the technological needs of the textile enterprise Tirotex. 

Transnistria issues its own stamps, but as its independence is not recognised internationally the stamps can only be used within the territory. To send mail to other countries Moldovan stamps have to be used. The Transnistrian stamp on this card is from a set of three definitive stamps and was issued on 12th April 2016. The new motive was printed on the backside of a fiscal stamp from the 1990s.

Thank You very much Hanko!
