The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) AG will donate 92 utility vehicles to local communities in all three Northern Greek prefectures traversed by the pipeline, the company said on Wednesday during a press conference in Thessaloniki.
Many years ago, very few outside Greece would bet that the country would be the best alternative for the South Corridor. Very few believed that Greece would host the largest part of one of the most important energy projects that are taking place at a global level. We believed it and our Greek partners did the same, TAP Greece Country Manager, Rikard Scoufias, said, adding that the project is progressing on schedule and within its budget.
The initiative, designed in close collaboration with the government and the competent ministries, is part of TAP’s 32-million-euro social and environmental investment (SEI) program to be implemented across project-affected areas. This investment amounts to 9 million euros, committed for the purchase of 33 ambulances, 22 garbage trucks, 17 forestry vehicles, 14 snow ploughs and 6 civil protection vehicles.
The press conference attended by all three heads of the northern prefectures, Theodoros Karypidis of Western Macedonia, Apostolos Tzitzikostas of Central Macedonia, and Christos Metios of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace.
