AMMITEC visit at Neorion – ONEX Shipyard in Syros island

On Saturday 22 October, 30 representatives of AMMITEC (Association of Maritime Managers in Information Technology and Communications) visited the Neorion – ONEX Shipyard in Syros island.

The members were given a tour and guided through by Mr. Grigoris Bilios, the Shipyard’s Security Manager, who informed them about its history during its 160 Years of Operations.

Established in 1861, the Neorion Shipyards is the first heavy industry plant of the Balkans and was the Greek shipyard that constructed the first steam ship in the region.

In addition, the same facilities produced military equipment and in 1973 were the pioneers in manufacturing one of the original concepts of the battery electric car.

After the acquisition by ONEX, the shipyard is entering to a new era of development by expanding its activities to new markets and implementing modern technologies.
