In the context of the company’s sponsoring initiatives, TERNA ENERGY proceeds into actions in order to protect and promote cultural findings in the areas of its business activities as well as to support innovative research.

The history of human evolution is hidden behind every stone and every object. Especially in the case of Greece, the country itself is a vast archaeological site full of findings and monuments which add to the already rich cultural heritage and enrich the archaeological map.

Recognizing the essential role of culture in the development of both the economy and society, TERNA ENERGY consistently supports actions to preserve, reveal and promote the cultural wealth and heritage throughout Greece.

Preparation of archaeological studies in areas where the company operates in Evia

“Rizokastro” of Aliveri is a Byzantine castle that stands on a projecting mountain south of the gulf of Aliveri with a supervisory character. The continuous use of this space starting in the Middle Ages and up to the present day is evidenced by the scattered architectural remains and the additions made to the monument which are preserved to this day. TERNA ENERGY, in collaboration with the respective Authority of Antiquities of Evia, took the initiative to prepare a study for the foundation support and revelation of the ancient castle “Rizokastro”.
