Centavros – Technical visit at the port of Volos

Assessing the “as-is” status of the port of Volos is the first milestone for the development of the SSE studies in CENTAVROS CEF project. Gates, as a member of the consortium, realized an on-site visit at the port of Volos on 10th March 2023, to record port infrastructure, operations and traffic flows and characteristics, necessary to estimate the energy demands of the port.
