For the successful completion and operation of the DESALINATION plant, TEMAK’ team – the design department, production department, the technicians and all in the company, as well as our distinguished partners-worked hard, methodically and responsibly for many months.
This DESALINATION plant, like all those which already operate in the Greek islands and abroad, which made by TEMAK, are the answer-solution to the problem of water scarcity in the country. It is the answer of the know-how and the expertise we have accumulated in Greece, so we can say with pride that in TEMAK we build some of the best and most complete desalination plants in the world.
This is the Greek way to provide to all our islands and develop our tourism, drinking water from DESALINATIONS made by Greek hands, envisioned and designed by Greek minds, plants that contribute to the strengthening of the Greek economy, always with respect to the environment.
Mr. Kotronis, the Mayor of Hydra, who was the next in order speaker, reported in detail the steps of this success story, from the initial decision making to the installation and set in operation of the desalination plant, all the obstacles and difficulties encountered, but also the reward to his efforts, when excellent water was finally delivered to the residents of Hydra.
