High-performance GREEN PORT GIURGIU

High-performance GREEN PORT GIURGIU

Transnational project (AT, RO) 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.

BORD – Creation of a Support System for Hydrographical Works on the Danube meant to assure Minimum Navigation Depths

BORD – Creation of a Support System for Hydrographical Works on the Danube meant to assure Minimum Navigation Depths

National project (RO) 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

HUMARK – Improving fairway marking system on the Hungarian Danube section of the Rhine – Danube corridor

National project (HU) 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.

INWAPO – Upgrading of Inland Waterway and Sea Ports

INWAPO – Upgrading of Inland Waterway and Sea Ports

Transnational project (IT, CZ, PL, AT, SK, HU, SL) 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.

NEWADA duo – Network of Danube Waterway Administrations – Data & User Orientation

NEWADA duo – Network of Danube Waterway Administrations – Data & User Orientation

Transnational project (AT, SK, HU, HR, RS, RO, BG) 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.

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

National project (BG) 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.
