  • [01] UNHCR to replace tents with prefabricated houses in eight refugee centers around Greece

    The UN's refugee agency (UNHCR) announced on Thursday it will replace the tents used by refugees with prefabricated houses in eight camps and centers around Greece.

    The agency said the aim is to make refugee housing suitable for winter. The project will be undertaken with the help of the European Commission's humanitarian aid department.

    [02] DEPA and Attica group to jointly examine conversion of group's fleet to LNG fuels

    The Greek public gas company DEPA and Attica Group, owner of Superfast Ferries and Blue Star Ferries, on Thursday signed an agreement for the use of liquified natural gas (LNG) by the group's passenger ships and ferries.

    The two companies said they will jointly examine the parameters and requirements for the use of LNG in the Attica Group fleet and then decide the next steps on the basis of their conclusions.

    DEPA and Attica Group both participate in the European programme Poseidon Med II, which seeks to establish LNG as the main fuel of the shipping industry and develop an adequate LNG refuelling network for ships. DEPA is coordinator of the five-year project, which ends in 2020 and includes Greece, Italy and Cyprus.
