Memorandum of Cooperation between the Search and Rescue Coordination Centre and Petrolina (Holdings) Public Ltd

On 13 July 2023, the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works and Petrolina (Holdings) Public Ltd ("Petrolina") proceeded with the signing of a Memorandum of Cooperation, establishing the framework of cooperation between the above mentioned company and the Search and Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC).

The Memorandum, signed by the Commander of JRCC, Commander NAVY Andreas Charalambides and Mr Dinos Lefkaritis, Executive CEO of Petrolina (Holdings) Public Ltd, highlights the importance of the cooperation between the state mechanism and the private sector, which is necessary and catalytic in cases of a crisis response occurring as a consequence of natural and/or man-made disaster, such as the Mass Search and Rescue Operations due to any naval or air accident in the area of responsibility of the Republic of Cyprus.

The Centre express its appreciation to Petrolina for its initiative, volunteering to support SAR operations. The company is considered an important tool in the fulfilment of the Centre's mission, which is zero loss of human life.
