On Saturday 13/06/2020, the President and CEO of the Group, Mr. George Romosios, welcomed at the Port of Athinios in Santorini, the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Mr. Costas Karamanlis and the General Secretary of Infrastructure Mr. George Karagiannis.
The visit took place in the context of the government delegation's visit, under the Prime Minister Mr. Kyriakos Mitsotakis, to Santorini on the occasion of the opening of our country to tourism.
During this visit, the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport as well as the General Secretary of Infrastructure and Transport were given a tour of the 1st section that was recently completed and the 2nd section where the work continues. The Project Manager was completely satisfied with both the progress of the projects and the result of the completion of such an important infrastructure project for the island of Santorini, which is one of the most popular destinations in our country.
The leadership of the Ministry claimed that the port of Athinios is now fully operational and many of the problems it has faced in the past have been addressed and the island of Santorini is now ready to welcome tourists from inside and outside, as the Group's company ERETVO SA handed over for use the first part of the project and even significantly earlier than the conventional deadline for completion.
This section, which corresponds to 70% of the total project, has already been put into operation, while the entire project will be completed by the end of 2020.
