Greece's PPC sends electricity power to Cyprus

Greece's electricity body, the Public Power Corporation, announced Tuesday it would send to Cyprus electricity power.
The decision was taken to enhance Cyprus' electricity production needs, after the destruction of the island republic's biggest power plant at Vassiliko, following the massive blast which occurred in the nearby Naval Base.
A PPC announcement says that the first 30 ΜW will be sent the soonest possible, following consultations between the governments of Greece and Cyprus.
Moreover, the PPC expresses its condolences to the families of Monday's blast victims.
The power station of Vassiliko was destroyed on Monday by the shock wave caused by the deadly explosion at the Evangelos Florakis Naval Base, near Limassol.
Twelve people were killed, namely six firemen, four National Guard members and two sailors, by the huge blasts which rocked nearby communities and caused extended damage.
Chairman of the Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) Charis Thrassou has described the damage to the nearby power station at Vassiliko as huge, noting that it may take billions of euros to restore.
