European Program - POSEIDON MED

Date: 20/04/2016

On Wednesday 17/2/2016 at the European Parliament took place the closing ceremony of Poseidon Med I and the opening ceremony of second phase of the European program. The main purpose of the first phase of the program was the introduction of LNG as the main fuel for the shipping industry and the development of an adequate network of LNG refueling infrastructure and Gas. The event was attended by project partners from five Member-States (Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Croatia and Slovenia) as well as Members of the European Parliament; George Grammatikakis, Notis Marias, Maria Spiraki and Eva Kaili from Greece, Lefteris Christoforou, Kostas Mavridis and Eleni Theocharous from Cyprus and Flavio Zanonato from Italy. Common belief of all attendees was that the use of cleaner fuels is a challenge and an opportunity for the region, while the role of Greece can be determinant as a hub of LNG. HSSA was represented by Charalampos Simantonis, the President of the Association and Mr. Dimitris Spyridakis, member of the Board of Directors.
