Climate related hazards have the potential to substantially affect the lifespan, service level or even cause significant damages to the facilities and operations of Hellenic Petroleum, as in any other petrochemical industry. The impacts to
the HELPE, can be devastating, as those to the sustainability of the country’s economy, the nearby living communities and the environment. The scope of this project is to derive an innovative framework for supporting the HELPE
Infrastructure‘s resilience to climate pressures, as well to generate scientifically truthful and validated knowledge on the potential impacts of climate on the HELPE operation. An innovative resilience framework will be derived, fusing the knowledge generated in holistic risk and impact assessment, by different alternative options which include (i) Prevention– options to minimise exposure of HELPE to hazards, through the more efficient and effective understanding and prioritizing of potential risk and threats; (ii) Reducing potential impacts – enhance contingency planning and business continuity to ensure alternative supplies, reserve capacity, and / or rapid restoration of services; (iii) Adapting to mitigating risk – investing in protection and defences.
