PPC chief invites Russian firms to cooperate with the company in joint projects in the Balkans

Power utility PPC chairman and CEO Manolis Panagiotakis invited Russian firms to cooperate with the company in joint projects in the Balkans during a speech at the Greek-Russian Forum, held in Athens on Wednesday.

“We have the opportunity to play a leading role in the integration of the Balkan market as a key participant,” Panagiotakis said.

“There’s plenty of hydrodynamic and lignite, and also the potential to generate electricity from natural gas, as well as very large prospects in the context of policies to address climate change, with renewable resources and distribution networks. We will develop our presence in these countries in all fields. We seek partnerships with local, Greek and Russian companies. It would be our pleasure to develop cooperation in business and investments,” he added.
