Greek gas grid operator DESFA-run Revithoussa LNG terminal near Athens inaugurated the third storage tank significantly bumping the facility’s storage capacity. 

The project was built in two stages, with the construction of a combined heat and power plant followed by the extension of the storage capacity of the facility.

The second stage included the construction of a third LNG storage tank, the upgrade of marine facilities and the installation of additional technology equipment to increase gasification, a statement by the European Commission notes.

The European Commission supported the project with €40 million from its Cohesion Policy funds.

The third tank boosted the facility’s storage capacity to 225,000 cubic meters in total with the regasification capacity jumping some 40 percent.
