  • Project objectives CENTAVROS Project 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.

  • Project Outputs Overall, CENTAVROS Project is expected to transform Volos Port into a port of the future:
  • through the adoption of modern technologies and practices ensuring quality of infrastructure and services;
  • through the upgrade and optimization of the port’s energy network, which will significantly improve its environmental performance;
  • leading to energy efficiency of harbour activities, environmental viability, safety and economic development.
