  • One of the biggest and most luxurious cruise ships of the world "SPECTRUM OF THE SEAS" called at the port of Piraeus and welcomed by the PPA Deputy CEO Capt.

Charles Sigmund Teige, highlighting:  "Piraeus has the biggest cruise terminal in the Eastern Mediterranean and is a modern and safe port which can accommodate the biggest ships, providing quality services according to ISO international standards”. It should be noted that as it appears from the bookings for 2019 as well as from the data of the first three months, there are positive prospects for the Piraeus port and especially the increase in homeporting, which is a strategic objective of the PPA Management.   • One more new ship, the cruise ship "BOUGAINVILLE", which was built in April 2019, welcomed representatives of the PPA Management and handed to the Cpt. Remi Genevaz an honorary plaque and books for the ship's library. The cruise ship "BOUGAINVILLE" which is making its maiden itinerary and travels to the Greek islands, belongs to the PONANT Company which operates three ships in luxury cruises in the Mediterranean and will make more than 23 calls at Piraeus in the summer of 2019.

Cruise statistics 2018

  Today we announce the official statistics of the cruise sector in our country, as we have been following this institutional process for the last eight years, under the following comments, resulting from the first reading of the final list: • Cruise data corresponds to cruise ship arrivals and cruise passenger visits to 43 recorded destinations (ports in mainland and islands) throughout our country. • The data provided by ELIME members (25 Port Organizations and Municipal Ports), following the recording and processing of their executives. In the Greek ports, where there are no ELIME members, our data was provided by the local Port Authorities, which we thank for their cooperation. • Thus, in the year 2018 just ended, 3,410 cruise ship arrivals (compared to 3,415 in 2017) and 4,788,642 cruise passenger visits (compared to 4,625,363 in 2017) were recorded in all Greek cruise destinations. • The top ten destinations have been retained for the last eight years (despite the small reclassifications). • In conclusion, the same picture is retained by 2017 with the same number of ship arrivals and a slight increase in passenger visits of around 3.5%, which proves that despite the problems that have been created in the last two years by the geopolitical turbulence in the East Mediterranean region, the Greek cruise retains its momentum, having only slightly changed from the high levels of 2015/2016. • The small increase of 2018 seems to be the basis for a larger rise this year, according to cruise market estimations. We wish you a good and creative year.

Cruise statistics 2017

  We are very pleased to present, the final list of Greek cruise ports, in which we have recorded the arrivals of cruise ships and cruise passengers for 2017. The source of the data is the members of ELIME (Port Organizations SA and the local Municipal Port Authorities of the Country). We take the opportunity to warmly thank the executives of all these agencies for our assistance in collecting the data, so that we can inform you responsibly, like every year. The picture of the 2017 data confirms the forecasts of cruise ship executives for both cruise ship cruises and cruise passengers' visits to Greek destinations.   Thus, for the year just ended, there was a drop of approximately 20.5% in cruise ship arrivals (from 4,307 in 2016 to 3,415 in 2017) and a drop of about 11% in cruise passenger visits (from 5,204,231 in 2016 to 4,625,363 in 2017), which influenced by the instability in ports and countries in Eastern Mediterranean region (Middle East region). We wish a better, more creative and dynamic year for the cruise sector in 2018.

Στατιστικά Κρουαζιέρας 2016

Η Ένωση Λιμένων Ελλάδος (ΕΛΙΜΕ), ακολουθώντας την πάγια τακτική των τελευταίων έξι χρόνων, συνέλεξε και παρουσιάζει τα στατιστικά στοιχεία κρουαζιέρας για το έτος 2016, που μόλις έκλεισε. Ο πίνακας παρουσιάζει τις αφίξεις κρουαζιερόπλοιων και επιβατών κρουαζιέρας, σε επίπεδο Χώρας, σύμφωνα με τα στοιχεία που μας απέστειλαν τα στελέχη των μελών (Οργανισμοί Λιμένων) και μελών – παρατηρητών (Λιμενικά Ταμεία) της ΕΛΙΜΕ καθώς και των τοπικών Λιμεναρχείων (όπου η ΕΛΙΜΕ δεν διαθέτει μέλη ή μέλη – παρατηρητές). Η ΕΛΙΜΕ εκφράζει τις ευχαριστίες της για την έγκαιρη και έγκυρη εργασία τους, ώστε να ολοκληρωθεί ο πίνακας αφίξεων κρουαζιερόπλοιων και επιβατών κρουαζιέρας, ο οποίος είναι χρήσιμος για εξαγωγή συμπερασμάτων τόσο σε σύνολο Χώρας όσο και σε τοπικό επίπεδο. Η συνολική εικόνα του πίνακα δείχνει ότι έκλεισε μία επίσης καλή χρονιά για την βιομηχανία κρουαζιέρας, αφού το σύνολο των αφίξεων κρουαζιερόπλοιων παρέμεινε σταθερό για το 2016 σε σχέση με το 2015 ( 4.290 αφίξεις το 2016 έναντι 4.281 αφίξεων το 2015) και σημειώθηκε μία μικρή αύξηση της τάξεως περίπου 5% στις αφίξεις επιβατών κρουαζιέρας το 2016 σε σχέση με το 2015 ( 5.197.118 αφίξεις επιβατών το 2016  έναντι 4.957.743 αφίξεων επιβατών το 2015). Πρέπει να διευκρινιστεί ακόμη μία φορά, ότι λόγω της ιδιαιτερότητας της κρουαζιέρας, όπου το κάθε ταξίδι είναι κυκλικό και περιλαμβάνει προσεγγίσεις πέραν του ενός προορισμού, οι αριθμοί αυτοί αποτελούν δείκτη επισκέψεων ίδιων πλοίων και επιβατών κρουαζιέρας σε περισσότερους του ενός προορισμούς. Πιο αναλυτικά: ·      Αξιοσημείωτη αύξηση σε αφίξεις παρουσίασαν τα λιμάνια της Κέρκυρας (σημειώνοντας ρεκόρ αφίξεων των τελευταίων 5 χρόνων), της Σούδας Χανίων, της Ζακύνθου και των Κυθήρων, ενώ το Λαύριο συνεχίζει για τρίτη χρονιά την ανοδική του πορεία εντάσσοντας το σταθερά στον πίνακα του homeporting. ·      Μείωση αφίξεων παρουσίασαν τα λιμάνια Κεφαλλονιάς – Ιθάκης του Βόλου και της Πάτμου, ενώ αξιοσημείωτη μείωση παρουσιάζουν τα λιμάνια της Μυτιλήνης και της Κω. ·      Τα νησιά που δέχθηκαν κατά το 2016 τις έντονες προσφυγικές ροές παρουσιάζουν μικτή εικόνα. Μείωση αφίξεων στη Μυτιλήνη και Κω, σταθερότητα στη Χίο και αύξηση στα λιμάνια της Σάμου (Βαθύ-Πυθαγόρειο). ·      Στα υπόλοιπα λιμάνια προορισμού κρουαζιέρας, οι αυξομειώσεις είναι μικρές και χωρίς ουσιαστική επίπτωση. Ολοκληρώνοντας την εικόνα, πρέπει να σημειωθεί ότι σύμφωνα με τεκμηριωμένες πληροφορίες τόσο από τα λιμάνια, σημαντικούς προορισμούς κρουαζιέρας, όσο και από τους παράγοντες της εγχώριας βιομηχανίας κρουαζιέρας, που αξιολογούν τις προκρατήσεις, τον προγραμματισμό του 2017 και υπολογίζοντας τις κινήσεις ακόμη και της τελευταίας στιγμής, φαίνεται ότι η χρονιά που άρχισε δεν θα είναι ιδιαίτερα ευνοϊκή για την κρουαζιέρα στην περιοχή μας. Είναι πιθανό να σημειωθούν σημαντικές αποκλίσεις (μειώσεις) τόσο στις αφίξεις κρουαζιερόπλοιων όσο και επιβατών στο σύνολο της Χώρας και στους επιμέρους προορισμούς. Το γεγονός αυτό αποδίδεται τόσο στην αποσταθεροποίηση της περιοχής της Ανατολικής Μεσογείου ( και ιδιαίτερα της Τουρκίας), όσο και στην ανάδειξη νέων αγορών ( Ανατολική Ασία, Αυστραλία κλπ), που επηρεάζουν αρνητικά και την Χώρα μας. Σας ευχόμαστε μία καλή, δημιουργική και αποτελεσματική χρονιά.

An important experiment for the protection of the marine environment is carried out these days by PPA SA

Another important experiment for the protection of the marine environment is carried out these days by PPA SA within the European Research Project SEE MARINER. The experiment identifying oil spots in the wider maritime port area in day and night conditions. For this project the Department of the Container Terminal of PPA SA, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Department of Water intake and Electrical engineering in cooperation with HEC are collaborating. The program has been developed for detecting oil in seawater through a thermal camera and the AIS system, so that after tracing it is possible to create conditions for discovery of the pollutant. As is known PPA SA, since 2011, has been named ECOPORT by ESPO (European Sea Ports Association) through certification by Lloyd's and through daily measurements, interventions and programs, is continually improving its ecological interventions to retain its title of ECOPORT active.

The Board of PPA SA approved the continuation of the project “construction of a new cruise quay in Ag. Nikolaos”

The Board of PPA SA, and after further investigation of the seabed foundation (from NTU and HCMR) and the decisions of the Technical Council, approved the continuation of the project “construction of a new cruise quay in Ag. Nikolaos”, which as is known is part of the NSRF (ROP Attica) and already running. The project will be completed by the end of 2013, so along with the new International Cruise Passenger Terminal C (Agios Nikolaos) will be set to operate as of the new cruise season, which begins on April 1st, 2014. With the operation of the two new cruise ship berthing locations, the total number of cruise berths will rise to 11 in 2014, and after approval by the EU and new platforms for new generation vessels (2-3) even with a subsidy of 95%, the positions will increase by 2016 to 14 berths, making Piraeus the largest hub for cruise ships in Europe and the only large modern hub in the Mediterranean. As the President and CEO of PPA SA, Mr. George Anomeritis commented: “Cruising is the second major activity for PPA, after the Container Terminal. The increasing development of the work of the sector justifies the particular investment care of PPA towards its customers, as well as the evolution of its own investment project. The cruise industry issue, after the recent decision by PPA SA to join projects in the NSRF, is no longer concerned with the infrastructure in the port of Piraeus, but in all regional ports, and in this direction the Hellenic Ports Association (Elime) is now intensively working towards.

Approval of the project of expanding the s. port cruise with cofinancing amounting to 120 m.euros of expanding the southern port cruise with cofinancing

The Chairman and CEO of PPA S.A., Mr Yiorgos Anomeritis expressed today at the meeting of the Directors Board his satisfaction  about the decision by the European Commission for approval of the project of expanding the southern port cruise with cofinancing from Community, national resources and own funds of PPA. This project which has been approved: (a) by the Committee for the Planning and Development of the Ports (ESAL), (b) has been included in the NSRF and (c) has been launched by the IMA of ROP Attica, is a key project for converting the port of Piraeus into a cruise hub of the Mediterranean. The expansion of the cruise port for new generation ships (over 300 m) is a mature project with comprehensive studies, which customized techically can be completed within the current programming period. This work and its approval have enormous significance for the entire port system in the country, because after the suggestion of the DG Competition and the approval of European Commission, there is an institutional "pilot" to build ports with state aid and EU funding. The most important part of the approval is certainly the financial part of the proposal: The Commission approved state aid amounting to 113.9 million euros, of which 96.9 million are financed by the EU Structural Funds. This means that for the project budget of EUR 120 million (undiscounted) the 96.9 million financed by the E.U., 17 million are national contribution and 6.1 million private contribution of PPA S.A. The aid rate stands at 95% and is probably the highest level of support received port in Europe, as a result of the substantiated positions of PPA and National Authorities. As Mr. George Anomeritis said: "This decision brings 120 million in Piraeus, enhances the Greek cruise, vindicating our efforts to transform the port of Piraeus into a Gate of Tourism and Culture. We should thank the Ministry of Finance and his executives, the Ministry of Marine and Aegean, the Region of Attica, the executives of PPA and his associates, officers of the Task Force for their help and of course the Commissioners and their partners for this decision.

Greek Cruise Ports at CRUISE SHIPPING MIAMI

Starting today, March 11, 2013 and will run until Thursday , March 14  in Miami USA the annual global cruise exhibition CRUISE SHIPPING MIAMI, with the presence and participation of the Greek Cruise Ports- members of the Hellenic Ports Association.   After the successful presentation for the tourism industry of  our country at the same exhibition in 2012 and 2011, it has been estimated  that also this year  the major cruise operators in Greece, G.N.T.O (E.O.T) and the HELLENIC PORTS ASSOCIATION (ELIME)  must participate in a common national stand.   The ELIME and the Greek cruise destination ports, recognizing the contribution of the cruise industry in the development of the national economy but also and the  benefits for the Hellenic  ports, as host communities, decided to participate in this  year's exhibition.   The reason for the common presence of EOT and ELIME,  has a dual purpose. Firstly, the more effective presentation of points of interest for the cruise (inland destinations and host ports for cruise ships) and secondly an  effinciency financial  participation.   Thus,at the national stand the participating ports are Piraeus Port Authority SA, Thessaloniki Port Authority SA , Patras Port Authority S.A , Corfu Port Authority SA , Heraklion Port Authority SA , Volos Port Authority SA , Igoumenitsa Port Authority SA  and Port Fund of Chania.   http://www.elime.gr http://www.greekcruise.gr http://www.cruiseshippingevents.com/el/miami

Greek and Italian Ports Achieve High Environmental Recognition

  On 20 February, ESPO awarded five new PERS certificates during a seminar held in Piraeus. ESPO congratulates the Greek ports of Corfu, Lagos, Kavala and Volos, and the Italian port of Piombino for this significant achievement. The Port Environmental Review System (PERS) is the only port sector specific environmental management standard. PERS is the flagship product of the EcoPorts network. It is offered as part of the ESPO services to its members. PERS is independently audited and certified by Lloyd’s Register. The five small and medium size ports joined EcoPorts and achieved PERS certification as part of their participation to the EC co-funded SuPorts project, focusing on the sustainable management of European local ports. SuPorts is a European INTERREG IVC project which aims to assist local ports in the implementation of environmental strategies and to facilitate their access to suitable environmental management tools,  enabling them to remain competitive by contributing to a more sustainable EU. The PERS award ceremony and embracing event was kindly hosted by the University of Piraeus and organised by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, both partners and contributors to the SuPorts project. ESPO Secretary General Patrick Verhoeven handed out the certificates to the representatives of the five ports, highlighting that it is the first time that ESPO has the pleasure to award such a number of certificates in one go and congratulating the whole project consortium for this achievement. The port of Piombino is the first ever Italian port that achieves PERS certification. The four Greek ports join the already certified ports of Piraeus and Thessaloniki and raise the number of Greek ports holding a valid PERS certificate to six. Greek ports are clearly the champions of PERS, accounting for six out of the total of 16 certificates that were awarded in the course of the last two years. “I pay tribute to the Greek ports for their continuous commitment to environmental management and support to the EcoPorts tools”, said ESPO Secretary General Patrick Verhoeven. “PERS is progressing very well and ESPO is looking forward to congratulating soon five more ports that are currently in the pipeline of being PERS certified”, he added.   The successful event in Piraeus was welcomed by the Greek Secretary General of Ports and Port Policy, Konstantinos Moutzouris and attracted various participants including local authorities, port professionals and academia. ESPO Policy Advisor Antonis Michail presented the overall approach of ESPO on port environmental management, focusing on the positive contribution of EcoPorts and the recently published ESPO Green Guide. “The positive trends that European ports demonstrate in terms of environmental performance, are seen as triggering factors that inspire the ports to continuously work towards achieving further improvement”, said Antonis Michail.    For more information on the EcoPorts tools and network, see www.ecoports.com.
