Hill International has received a contract to provide construction supervision services in support of a €350 million ($399 million) Capital Expenditure Program for the Piraeus Port Authority in Greece. 

The four-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately €2.4 million ($2.7 million).

“This is a major foreign direct investment and a project of national significance for Greece,” said Emmanouil Sigalas, Vice President with Hill International. “We are honored by this appointment and we look forward to supporting its delivery.”

The Capital Expenditure Program entails upgrading and expanding the port’s infrastructure, including a new cruise terminal, dredging projects and facilities improvements, Hill said in its release.

The Port of Piraeus is the largest port in Greece, the largest passenger port in Europe and the third busiest port in the world. Spanning more than 27 kilometers (16.7 miles) along the coast, it has an aggregate area exceeding 5 million square meters (53.8 million square feet).
