INWAPO – Upgrading of Inland Waterway and Sea Ports

INWAPO – Upgrading of Inland Waterway and Sea Ports

Central Europe’s inland waterways offer economical and environmentally friendly freight transport, but this potential is not sufficiently exploited. The main aim of the INWAPO project was to activate the unexploited potential of waterborne transport in Central Europe and to develop the ports’ infrastructure and new waterway services.

Improvement of the navigational systems and topo-hydrographic measurements on the Danube River – Phase 2

Improvement of the navigational systems and topo-hydrographic measurements on the Danube River – Phase 2

Within the project the delivery of a specialized surveying vessel, including a boat for hydrographic measurements in shallow and narrow sections, has been implemented. The objective was to achieve international standards for implementation of topographic measurements, including hydrographical and hydrological activities necessary for studying the hydromorphological changes along the inland waterways.

DaHar – Danube Inland Harbour Development

DaHar – Danube Inland Harbour Development

The project paved the way for inland harbours of small and medium-sized Danube cities to develop themselves in a coordinated, sustainable way with respect to their urban environment by utilising the logistical and multi-modal development capacities of their ports and port areas and by developing their ports in a harmonised manner.

Integrated River Engineering Project / Catalogue of Measures for the Danube East of Vienna

Integrated River Engineering Project / Catalogue of Measures for the Danube East of Vienna

The Catalogue of measures for the Danube east of Vienna is the result of an integrative planning process and a multi-year concept based on a pilot project phase, offering compatible solutions for both navigation and ecology. It includes the granulometric improvement of the river bed / sediment management, the new and re-construction of groynes, side arm reconnections, river bank restorations and the stabilization of scour holes. The interdisciplinary planning approach with strong stakeholder participation shall guarantee optimal solutions for all involved parties.

Building and reconstruction of the south quay in the Port of Osijek

Building and reconstruction of the south quay in the Port of Osijek

This planned port infrastructure project foresees the construction and reconstruction of the south quay in the Port of Osijek. The four phases include the construction of basic ports infrastructure (rail tracks, roads, water supply system, electric power supply network, etc.), a container terminal, a RO-RO terminal and the reconstruction of the existing vertical and inclined quay.

Upgrade of Gabčíkovo locks

Upgrade of Gabčíkovo locks

Due to discontinuous operation of the Gabčíkovo locks, safe, reliable and quality navigation and especially passing the locks on the Slovak stretch of river Danube is not provided. Upgrade of the Gabčíkovo locks aims at the modernisation of Gabčíkovo locks and consequently the provision of continuous and stable navigation conditions for both of the Gabčíkovo locks and to ensure a safe passage through the locks.
