The project commences in October 2010 and is expected to be finalised and commissioned by January 2011. The operation of the plant has substantial environmental benefits including the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by 2,600 tons per year. This is the same amount of carbon dioxide that would be removed from the atmosphere each year by a forest of 130,000 trees via photosynthesis.
“We are adding one more important project to the wide list of projects we have under construction throughout Greece. Our ongoing objective is the continued expansion of our presence in the Country and the wider region of South-eastern Europe by offering complete energy solutions based on our knowledge, experience and commitment to quality,” said Positive Energy’s Commercial Director, Mr. Kyriakos Agiannidis. “By adding this project to our portfolio, Positive Energy has a total of over 20MWP of projects under development today.”
Meanwhile, Stelios Georgioudakis, CEO of Solar Gate, stated: “We are very happy to announce today the start of this large project not only for its investment profits but also for its significant environmental benefits. We are also happy because we are contributing to the Country’s initiative to encourage ‘green’ investments that can offer new jobs and help local societies to grow.”
