The Independent Power Transmission Operator firmly supports the society, as it proceeds with a new round of donations amounting to 530,000 euros towards eight Greek cities. The aim of IPTO's new corporate responsibility initiative is to relieve the victims of the pandemic and those affected by the recent, strong earthquake that struck the region of Thessaly.
In the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, the Operator recorded the current needs of hospitals in Thessaloniki, Ptolemaida, Patras, Messolonghi, Heraklion, Chania, Sitia and Syros. In coordination with the administrations of the local hospitals, the immediate procurement of the following was arranged:
- ICU Medical equipment
- ICU Electromechanical installations
- Ventilation systems
- Isobox containers for triage of suspected Covid-19 patients
- Personal protective gear for health personnel
- Four containers for earthquake victims
Mr. Manos Manousakis, President and CEO of IPTO, stated in this regard: "With the pandemic crisis in full swing, the Operator reiterates its support to public hospitals focusing on eight cities in Crete, Syros and the mainland. Over the previous year, IPTO has supported the National Healthcare System with donations totaling to 1.4 million euros while it continues to explore new possibilities of assisting public health structures until the threat of the pandemic is gone for good".
