This project extends the northern breakwater in the port of Constanta, Romania’s main national port, by 1 050 metres in order to fully protect its southern area against waves.
The construction of a road bridge between the river-maritime area and the “artificial island” in the Port of Constanta is foreseen in order to ensure mobility in the port area and multimodality through the improved connection with the hinterland.
The project (study) at port Giurgiu comprised the elaboration of several feasibility studies, technical concepts and models as well as a business plan for the proposed measures which all serve as good practices for further investments in Danube ports.
The objective of this project was to gather the expertise of partners from different fields related to meteorology, hydrology, infrastructure operation, transport and economics in order to assess the effects of climate change on the transport network, taking the inland waterway network as a case study.
BORD – Creation of a Support System for Hydrographical Works on the Danube meant to assure Minimum Navigation Depths
The project was concerned with the completion of a network of markings (a system of reference) for the Romanian Danube and a catalogue with the precise coordinates of those markings, both in the Romanian reference system (necessary for the cadastre records) and in the European reference system (necessary for the changes on the electronic navigation charts).
HUMARK – Improving fairway marking system on the Hungarian Danube section of the Rhine – Danube corridor
Within the project at hand, the Hungarian marking system will be modernised. Three full-functional marking vessels and three high-speed inspection boats as well as land- and waterside navigation signs will be procured and put into pilot operation. The project contributes to the implementation of the Fairway Rehabilitation and Maintenance Master Plan.
Within this project the waterway administrations of the Danube region are cooperating to improve harmonised and comprehensive waterway management of the Danube and its navigable tributaries. The project continues the efforts of the NEWADA and NEWADA duo projects.
The overall objective of ENERGY BARGE was to foster sustainable usage of biomass for energy production in the Danube Region and to increase the share of environmentally-friendly biomass transports on the Danube.
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.
The follow-up project of NEWADA further supported the waterway administrations of the Danube riparian states in achieving a common level of service in waterway management along the Danube and its navigable tributaries. The “NEWADA duo” approach of concerted waterway and information management procedures is crucial for the benefit of the users.
