Fuel Tanks Transfer to Vasiliko from Larnaca Next Year

The transfer of the petrol storage facilities in Larnaca to the Vasiliko area will be carried out beginning of 2018, while at the start of 2019, the transfer of liquid gas storage facilities will take place said Interior Minister, Socrates Hasikos.

According to the Press Information Office (PIO), a meeting took place Wednesday, April 12, regarding the matter of transferring petrol and gas storage facilities from Larnaca to the Vasilikos area.

At the meeting, which was presented by the Interior Minister, present were also the Energy Minister, the Agriculture Minister, the Justice Minister, the Transportation Minister, while the Defence Minister was represented by the General Manager of his Ministry. Also present were the Larnaca Municipality, the Livadia Municipality and representatives of the petrol companies.

Following the meeting the Interior Minister commented: “We are fighting with the procedures so that the transfer takes place within the deadlines set by the directives, so this requires the cooperation of everybody at all levels of government services.”

Hasikos said that the presence of Larnaca and Livadia in the meeting is due to the fact that they are directly affected, thus they are involved to know firsthand how the process is proceeding.

“Problems are surfacing, which are resolved or routed towards resolution, but what I want us to emphasise is that the current government has passed from words into action,” said Hasikos.

During the meeting, safety issues were discussed, “starting with the current facilities, along with the safety measures being taken for the new Energy Centre of Vasiliko, which is of high danger,” said Hasikos.

The Interior Minister added: “Given the fact that we lived horrible situations with the explosion in Mari, we want to act pre-emptively, by having in the area, or near it a fire station which will be able to act immediately.”
