The framework of cooperation between EYATH SA and Municipality of Pylea – Chortiatis for the construction of water supply and sewerage infrastructure in the new Pediatric Hospital of Filyro, but also for the future full integration of the municipality in the exclusive activity zone of EYATH, was signed today with the signing of a Memorandum of Cooperation between the two sides at its headquarters company, in Egnatia St. .
From the side of the Municipality of Pylea – Chortiatis, the memorandum was signed by the mayor I. Kaitezidis and the chairman of the Board of DEYA Pylea-Chortiatis, N. Chatziantoniou, and from EYATH, the managing director, A. Amanatidis, and the chairman, Agis Papadopoulos.
In relation to the new Pediatric Hospital, which will be built in the municipal community of Filiro with funding from the “Stavros Niarchos” Foundation and deadline in 2025, EYATH has already provided water to the “construction site” for the needs of the construction, through the Acropolis Reservoir. In order to fully cover the needs of the unit, the study for the upgrade of the company’s networks and facilities has already been completed, which envisages projects amounting to 1.1 million euros. For the sewerage of the hospital, a study of a sewage pipeline has been prepared, with a construction cost of 75,000 euros (the water supply-sewerage costs will be borne by EYATH itself).
“It is our duty, it is the highest social responsibility for EYATH, to ‘run’ as soon as possible the necessary procedures for the completion of the infrastructure and the accompanying projects that will be needed for the operation of the hospital. This is the first pediatric hospital outside Athens, an ambitious project that Thessaloniki and our children need, at a time when health issues are at the forefront of the world “, noted the CEO of EYATH, Anthimos Amanatidis. “At the same time, with the mayor of Pylea – Chortiatis, we defined the framework, in order to accelerate the provision of water supply and sewerage services throughout the municipality, based on a strategic plan,” added Mr. Amanatidis.
“Today is a historic day. We are implementing a plan in collaboration with EYATH – I would also like to thank the company publicly – so that our large water supply and sewerage project of the former Municipality of Chortiatis is entirely under the responsibility of EYATH, based on the schedule we have set. This will restore the unit (Panorama-Pylea was appertained to EYATH for years) and the residents will feel safe with the confidence, quality and quantity of EYATH water. We also serve together a national goal, the Pediatric Hospital in Filiro, which with this goal will gain water adequacy “, stressed the mayor of Pylea – Chortiatis, Ignatios Kaitezidis, assuring that the municipality has secured funds of more than 20 million euros, sectoral and European, for the upgrading of the networks .
The former municipalities of Pylea – Panorama are fully integrated in the area of responsibility of EYATH, the municipal district of Chortiatis is not served at all (with a special contract EYATH only strengthens the water supply network), while the d.d. of Filiro is served only in terms of sewerage. EYATH completes a study for the transport of water in the areas of Filiro, Asvestochori and Exochi, with a provision for reinforcement of the d.d. of Chortiatis. In relation to Filiro, the relevant study has been completed and licensing is expected. Based on the memorandum, a strategic plan will be prepared, which will include in principle the recording by the municipality of the current state of the water supply system, the extension of the city plan and a series of studies for the required interventions in the existing networks.
