ERGOSE’s current project pipeline is quite interesting since it is spread almost all over the network. According to the planning of company and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, a total of 693m euros will be spent on 11 railway projects which are funded by the NSRF 2014-2020.

Most of these projects concern upgrades of the existing network as well as the installation of electrification, signaling & telecommunications systems. In fact, ERGOSE notes that these projects are mature in terms of design and one after the other will proceed to their implementation.

In Athens, the most important project is the construction of the Athens Central Railway Station (Phase B’), which also includes the underground connection with the Metro, with a cost of 40m euros. With this project, upgrade works of the Central Railway Station will be completed.

Heading north, we find the project for the construction of the new Kryoneri Railway Station with 6.5m euros. One of the biggest projects of this “package” is the upgrade of the double-track line on SKA-Inoi section that will allow higher speeds for the trains, costing 100m euros.

In Thessaly, the contract for the electrification, signaling and telecommunications on Larissa-Volos section is being prepared. The project, with a cost of 71m euros, includes the upgrade of Latomio-VIPE-Volos Railway Station.

In the region of Macedonia, we have a total of 4 projects.These are a signaling and ETCS project on Thessaloniki-Idomeni single-track railway line, with a total cost of 65m euros, a double project for the electrification on Thessaloniki-Promachonas (Thessaloniki-Mouries and Mouries-Promachonas) single-track line with a combined cost of 150m euros (65m and 85m euros respectively). In this geographical area there is also a project for the construction of anew railway station at Neos Panteleimonas in Pieria prefecture.

In the area of ​​Peloponnese we have the electrication project of Kiato-Aigio line with 57 m euros as well as the project that will bring the train from Aigio to Rio. This project includes the superstructure, electrification, signaling, telecommunications and new stations at a cost of 117m euros.

Finally, there is a project for the installation of GSM-R systems and the supply of portable equipment for the sections of Tithorea-Domokos, Kiato-Patra and Thessaloniki-Idomeni, with a total budget of 40m euros.

Α step forward has been taken in the case of the casino in Elliniko since, as it became known, the technical offer of Mohegan-GEK TERNA consortium was approved by the Gaming Supervision and Control Committee (EEEEP), which is also the finalist for this large-scale project.

What remains now is the award of the tender, a step which is currently unknown when it will take place due to the pending case of Hard Rock International’s appeal to the Council of State. It is reminded that the American company made this move despite the repeated negative decisions for it in this tender, due to the rejection of its offer.

The completion of the tender for the Integrated Resort Casino (IRC), is a basic deferral condition for the initiation of the project in Elliniko, which means that the relevant contract must first be signed in order for the signatures concerning the large investment in the spaces of former international airport to be completed.

Inspire Athens

The official name given by Mohegan-GEK TERNA consortium is “Inspire Athens” and is a mega-project, in fact the largest building project in Greece, while for GEK TERNA will be a top addition to the portfolio of projects that implements.

“Inspire Athens”, the first integrated tourist complex with casino in Greece, consists of a luxury hotel, entertainment venues, conference center, shops, restaurants, as well as a complete range of high quality services. The project will help to inaugurate a new era of touristic development and economic prosperity for Greece and the whole region.

The flagship design of the building is a creation of the international architectural firm Steelman Partners, which specializes in the design and construction of IRC complexes.
