PROJECT VALUE

TBC

The CENTAVROS project maritime port of Volos, which is located on the comprehensive network in central Greece, aims to provide the necessary studies and final engineering designs for the port of Volos:

  • For the development of the infrastructure and facilities that will enable shore-side electricity (SSE) for vessels berthed at the port;
  • for the installation of a wave-energy generation system that will contribute to the increased power SSE needs;
  • for the safety upgrade of the port’s windward breakwater to safeguard vessels from extreme wave and wind conditions in the basin and facilitate access to the port.

The objective of the project is to contribute to the increase of energy efficiency and the use of alternative fuels contributing to the decarbonization of the transport system in line with the EU Green Deal and the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy. The upgrade of the windward breakwater facilitates safe access to the port, thus increasing maritime safety.
