Major hydroelectric dam in Thessaly to go ahead, PM Samaras announces

The hydroelectric project of Messochora, in central Greece, is slated to be completed in two years, following implementation of construction decisions, Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said on Thursday after a meeting at Maximos Mansion with Environment Minister Yiannis Maniatis, Deputy Minister Nikolaos Tagaras and government spokeswoman Sofia Voultepsi.
The work is part of the greater project on the diversion of part of the Acheloos River in Thessaly that has been plagued by delays and interruptions at least since the 80s.
Samaras said that already 283 million euros had been invested in the past for the Messochora dam, and it needs another 110 million euros before it is finished; this funding is already available and will be covered by the Public Power Corporation (PPC).
