The first “green” Motorists Service Stations in Greece at Psathopyrgos, Achaia

Olympia Odos, respecting the environment and the motorway users has constructed the first “green” Motorists Service Station (MSS) in Greece. In particular, the two MSSs of Psathopyrgos, Achaia (to Patras and to Athens), out of the 11 MSSs of the Motorway, were constructed in 2017 in accordance with the most modern building and energy saving regulations.

All the buildings of Psathopyrgos MSS, even those exempted from the energy efficiency classification obligation, such as the gas station buildings, have been constructed in accordance with the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulation (KENAK) and are rated Class B+. This means that all buildings present a low energy consumption and low carbon (CO2) emissions.

In the case of gas stations, the energy consumption records a 45.81% decrease compared to a conventional building, while the total carbon emissions amount to 55 kg/year/m2 (kilos of carbon dioxide equivalent per square meter per year), while in the case of restaurants, the energy consumption decrease amounts to 27.74% and the total emissions to 102 kg/year/m2.

Moreover, these are the first MSSs in Greece where you can charge your electric vehicles (EV charge), while very soon in 2018, they will also offer natural gas (Fisikon) as fuel for motorists.

The services offered at the two MSSs are the following:

  • In the direction to Patras:

Restaurants: Olympus Plaza with “Elia & Ladi”, Everest, Mini Market, bookstore, WC with access for disabled people
