Safer, more affordable energy supply in Greece thanks to Cohesion Policy
The Commission welcomes the inauguration of the upgraded liquefied natural gas terminal in Revithoussa, in the Greek region of Attica. €40 million from Cohesion Policy funds helped this important energy project get off the ground. This terminal, already in operation, provides Greece with more affordable, secure and sustainable energy.
Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu said:
Thanks to this Cohesion Policy project, citizens are saving money in energy bills and Greece confirms its position as a gate for natural gas supply within a secure and interconnected European energy market.
The project was built in two stages: first the construction of a Combined Heat and Power plant and then the extension of the storage capacity of the Revithoussa terminal. The second stage included the construction of a third tank, the upgrade of marine facilities and the installation of additional technology equipment to increase the gasification.
