In the framework of the third edition of the Danube Business Talks successfully organised by viadonau on 10th and 11th October, an international expert audience came together to discuss how
The project’s objective is to improve the conditions for safe navigation on the Danube (sector Prahovo), in particular during the low water level periods by removal of the German sunken vessels from WW II.
The main target of this study is to analyse the potential of the mentioned new inland waterway link Danube-Oder-Elbe from an economical, ecological, hydrological, transport and social point of view. On the basis of its output decisions would be made on the next steps to be taken concerning this project.
The concluded project entailed the construction of an LNG terminal in the Port of Ruse, equipped with a truck fuelling station and a pontoon to be used for the future fuelling of LNG vessels.
The ongoing project concerns the modernisation and extension of the existing rail and road infrastructure in the port, in order to increase the attractiveness of the port in the TEN-T Core Network.
The aim of the project is to ensure the infrastructure for the deployment of alternative fuels in synergy with other projects on scientific research and pilot deployments of LNG vessels, LNG master plan etc. By the end of 2018, a feasibility study will be prepared, laying the groundwork for the construction of the LNG terminal.
The project entails the upgrading of the basic port infrastructure, the supporting transhipment facilities and the port's connections with the rail and road network.
Several rehabilitation measures were already conducted at the lock in order to maintain its functionality. Until 2025, a replacement construction will be built 300m north of the existing weir and lock.
The designed life span of 80 years is already exceeded and major rehabilitation of both lock chambers as well as the weir complex is necessary. The overhaul project aims to improve the reliability and safety of the navigation lock infrastructure, eliminating the occurrence of long closures and preventing malfunctions.
The main objective of the project is to provide the prescribed fairway parameters on the Sava river between Belgrade and the border with Croatia (Serbian Sava stretch). On this river stretch five major bottlenecks will be removed until 2020.
