The inauguration of the upgraded LNG terminal in Revithoussa, in the Greek region of Attica, has been welcomed by the European Commission. The terminal, already in operation, provides Greece with more affordable, secure and sustainable energy. €40m from Cohesion Policy funds helped this important energy project get off the ground.
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.
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.”
