Mr. Alexis Alexiou, CEO of Cenergy Holdings and Hellenic Cables, commented: “We are pleased that Končar trusts us and chooses us again as a reliable supplier contributing to Croatia’s energy transition”.
Mr. Gordan Planinić, MOB of Končar – Engineering Ltd. for production and services, commented: “For the second time, we have chosen Hellenic Cables as a partner in a strategic project in Croatia which will connect Croatian islands Hvar, Korčula, Cres, and Lošinj with new 110 kV HV cables. This enables, above all, to maintain the security of supply of customers on the Adriatic islands as well as a significant environmental contribution to the preservation of the cleanliness of the Adriatic Sea”.
