The International Oil Pollution Compensation (IOPC) Funds have opened an office in Piraeus where claims can be filed for compensation for damages suffered due to the September 10 oil spill from the Agia Zoni II tanker.
“The office, which will be operational from Thursday 2 November 2017, is staffed by a Greek team and has been set up to ensure that all compensation claims are processed in an efficient and timely manner. A local team of claims experts has been engaged and all relevant documentation will be provided in both English and Greek,” according to an IOPC statement.
The Greek government yesterday offered an extension of the October 30 deadline for the installation of electronic inflow-outflow monitoring systems on tankers carrying shipping fuel, until September 28.
Individuals, partnerships, companies, private or public bodies impacted by the sinking of the Agia Zoni II should submit their claims directly to the Claims Submission Office and appointments can be made to discuss individual claims by contacting the office at Agia Zoni II Claims, Submission Office, Skouze 26 Street, 4th floor, Piraeus 18536, Telephone: +30 210 4282334.
