N-KOM of Qatar inked an agreement with HeLenGi Engineering for the retrofit of Greek ferries as part of the Poseidon-Med project.
The contract was signed during the Posidonia event, which was held from 2-6 June at the Metropolitan Expo in Athens.

The landmark agreement signed at Posidonia not only signifies our growing reputation in the important Greek shipping industry but also serves to further strengthen our position as the preferred gas solutions provider internationally,” said Albert Kee, General Manager (Operations) at N-KOM.
