Nicosia, May 15, 2018 – The EuroAsia Interconnector, the official EU project developer of the 2,000MW electricity interconnector between Israel, Cyprus Crete – Attica, Greece and Europe, has welcomed the political support of the three leaders of Cyprus, Israel and Greece, as announced in the official declaration of the fourth Trilateral Summit held in Nicosia on April 8.
The three leaders – President Nicos Anastasiades of Cyprus, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of Greece – gave their full support to the timely implementation of the EuroAsia Interconnector, a leading project of common interest (PCI) of the European Union that will interconnect the electricity grids of Israel, Cyprus, Crete and Attica in Greece with the EU system.
“We thank the three leaders for their exceptional support to the EuroAsia Interconnector, which establish a secure ‘electricity highway’ between Asia and Europe,” said CEO Nasos Ktorides.
“We are grateful to the European Commission that has been a constant supporter throughout the project, from its inception to the current stage. We are working intensively for the timely implementation for the interconnection Israel-Cyprus-Crete–Attica to be implemented following the obligations and commitments undertaken by the PCI EuroAsia Interconnector Project Promoter”.
