Efforts to Restore Problems in the Electricity Grid Continue

January 25, 2022

ATHENS – The Hellenic Electricity Distribution Network Operator (DEDDIE) on Tuesday warned citizens to immediately move away and avoid any contact with fallen cables and poles if they see any damage to the electricity network.

In these cases they should call 11500 or 2111900500 or declare it through the MyDEDDiE app on Android and iOS from their mobile phone or via computer from the HEDNO website (deddie.gr).

Work to restore the electricity supply are continuing on Tuesday but the process is hampered because access to some areas has not been restored yet. During the night in Attica, there were damages to 53 lines. DEDDIE staff fully repaired the damage to four lines and a significant section of another 12. The damage was located mainly in the northern suburbs, Mesoghia and in some municipalities of the southern suburbs.


ATHENS - The United States has a strong and historic relationship with Greece because it trusts it to act in a reliable way, US Ambassador George Tsunis said on Tuesday, at the first press briefing held after meeting with Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias earlier in the day.
