Greece: Titan to supply quake-hit Kefalonia
07 March 2014


Titan Cement is to provide 500t of packed cement to the earthquake-hit island of Kefalonia, catering for repair works urgently needed in buildings of public interest.

The Greek cement major said it will respond to related requests addressed to it directly for the prompt restoration of the most serious construction problems presented in public or municipal buildings, churches, and infrastructure projects, aiming to relieve the inhabitants of the island who were struck by the earthquake.

Since January 26, Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands in western Greece, has been struck by two quakes of more than 5.0 in magnitude, and hundreds of aftershocks over 3.5, resulting to damage in some 3000 houses, according to authorities. A 4.6 tremor also struck on 14 February, following a 4.5 one  two days prior.
