The 87 utility vehicles comprise 33 ambulances, 16 garbage trucks and sweepers, 17 forestry vehicles, 15 snowploughs, and 6 civil protection vehicles. The programme focuses on improving communities’ quality of life, as well as environmental management.
The project was designed in close collaboration with the Hellenic Government, as well as prefectural and municipal authorities, to serve the needs of local communities in Northern Greece – providing better healthcare, environmental management, cleaning, and safety services for residents.
ca. €11 million investment
The initiative was officially launched during a press conference held in Thessaloniki and attended by all three Heads of the Northern Greek Prefectures, who thanked TAP on behalf of the communities benefitting from the initiative. The event also marked the first public broadcast of TAP’s campaign for the launch of this specific initiative, with the tagline "TAP. A pipeline of good energy."
*While TAP initially allocated €9 million for this programme, the amount was increased to €11 million, so as to cover additional features and the instalment of latest technologies in selected vehicles.
**The final number and/or kind of the donated vehicles may differ, due to the changing needs of local communities.
