TERNA’s informative event about the hydro-pumped storage project in Amfilochia was successfully completed on Thursday, October the 1st, 2015 at Amfilochia’s City Hall.
The event intended to both inform local administration and representatives from the local authorities about the project and the benefits that will result from its implementation, as well as to enable interventions and questions from the public.
The event was attended by Amfilochias’ Mayor Mr. Ap. Koimisis, city and prefectural counselors, representatives of law enforcement bodies, the clergy, the municipality services and other institutions along with citizens of the region wishing to learn about the design of the Project, which is expected to be implemented near the village of Alevrada in the Municipality of Amfilochia.
The project was presented by Mrs. P. Tsiknakou, Hydroelectric Projects Director from TERNA ENERGY and Mr. N. Kriezis, executive from PLANET S.A., which is the Project Management and Coordination Consultant. During the presentation, the project purpose and its Design philosophy (together with the specifications and timetable) were analyzed, whilst the strategic nature of the project was noted, including the investment’s benefits for the local community, the environment and the National/European energy market.
Following a short presentation of the project, the participants raised questions and discussed with the Company’s representatives regarding specific details of the project. The positive climate in which the discussion was held reflects the acceptance -in principle- of the project, by the local community and the area’s stakeholders.
This event belongs to a series of informative events planned by TERNA ENERGY, aiming at raising the public’s awareness about the project.
