Shipping Ministry signs contracts worth €14.4 million for patrol boats, high-speed vessels

Greece’s Shipping Ministry has recently entered into three contracts with Viking Norsafe Life-Saving Equipment Hellas. These contracts involve the acquisition of a total of 31 patrol boats, including 21 conventional boats and 10 inflatable boats, along with three high-speed boats for the Port Authority. The total value of these contracts amounts to 14,372,700 euros.

These boats form part of an extensive procurement program for the Port Authority-Hellenic Coast Guard, which has been ongoing for the past four years, commencing at the end of 2019. The program, with a budget of 800 million euros, aims to enhance the capabilities of the Port Authority-Hellenic Coast Guard.

The funding for this program is sourced from the 2014-2020 EU funding cycle and the Domestic Security Fund (TEA). As per the contractual obligations, the boats must be delivered within the next 10 months to meet the specified timeline.  [AMNA]

PS I thought Greece was in highest need of ambulances, crews and health personnel such as doctors and nurses. But the government has other priorities than its citizens.

Interesting to note that there is a current caretaker government since May 29… and I’m not sure it can sign such contracts. Oh, state-run news agency amna doesn’t say when exactly the contracts were signed.
