Prometheus sails into Limassol port

Greek naval support ship opens its doors to the public for a sneak peek


Navy enthusiasts will have a chance to go on board the Greek support ship HS Prometheus, which is making a stop in Cyprus this week.

The ship sails into Limassol Port on Thursday and will remain on the island through Sunday.

According to a press release, the ship will be open for public visits on Thursday and Saturday, August 23 and 25, between 5pm and 8pm. Visitors can enter through a Guest Entrance by showing an official government ID card.

Prometheus, which was scheduled to take part in joint exercises with the Israel Navy on Wednesday, has 130 cadets on board from the Hellenic Naval Academy. 

The Greek logistics support ship is on a month-long training voyage, where it had an opportunity to train with Italian and Egyptian naval ships in a number of exercises, including protecting maritime vessels.

During their brief visit to Cyprus, the captain, officers and a delegation of cadets will lay wreaths at military memorial sites. There will also be visits with local political, religious and military officials, including a tour of the Greek Embassy in Nicosia, according to CNA News Agency.
