Greece has received nine non-binding bids for the sale of a 65 percent stake in its dominant gas supplier DEPA Commercial, its privatisation agency said on Monday.
Investors who have expressed an interest in the stake include Shell Gas, Vitol Holding, Power Globe, MET Holding and C.G. Gas Limited of Greece's Copelouzos group, the agency said in a statement.
The Greek stock market continued to reap the benefits from the European Central Bank's move to include Greece in its emergency bond-buying program for a second day on Friday, but unlike on Thursday, banks were participating in force. Oil companies led the way, while mid- and small-caps appeared more reserved. There was a marked improvement in turnover.
Hellenic Petroleum on Monday announced the acquisition of a solar power park in Kozani with a power of 204 MW, the largest project of renewable energy sources in Greece and one of the top 5 photovoltaic farms in Europe.
The project is currently under development by German company juwi and it is expected to be put into operation by the end of 2021.
