Poseidon Med II, a project to bring about the wide adoption of liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel at East Mediterranean, on 17 December organised a workshop at the Technological Educational Institute of Crete (TEI) to discuss the subject matter, it said.
The event was opened by the Rector, N. Katsarakis and was followed by a welcome note by the President and Managing Director of the port of Heraklion, A. Philippis.
The event was attended by Professors and students of the Technological Educational Institute of Crete, as well as representatives from the Port Authorities and other stakeholders from the port of Heraklion.
The links comprising the LNG supply chain that is the subject of the studies of PMII (M. Fotiadou, DEPA), the measurements of air pollutants at the port of Heraklion (A. Mitsotakis, CERTH) and the contribution of the large scale LNG infrastructure at Revythousa towards the successful development of small-scale LNG infrastructure in the ports of the programme (T. Eleftheriadou, DESFA), were some of the issues presented by the PMII partners.
The studies of the programme on the selection of the optimum position for small-scale LNG facilities within the Heraklion port (A.
