BASIC PROJECT DATA
Project ID: PA1A138
NEED AND ADDED VALUE FOR THE DANUBE REGION STRATEGY
The Hungarian section of the Danube river is 417 km long and an important part of the Rhine-Danube Corridor. As part of the TEN-T inland waterways, it has to be fitted with RIS in line with Directive 2005/44/EC.
OBJECTIVE(S) OF THE PROJECT
The objective of the project was to enhance the Hungarian River Information Services (RIS) system in order to support efficient and safe inland navigation on the Danube. The project consisted of works to enhance traffic management services, modernise on-shore RIS services and improve the quality of fairway information services data.
CONDUCTED PROJECT ACTIVITIES
The project included the:
- Improvement of telecommunication services of the Hungarian RIS infrastructure (backbone, VHF and AIS) by optimising the existing and deploying shore based infrastructure as well as by updating the software interface.
- Extension of traffic management services and centre by using radar and web camera. The updated services provide high level services to increase efficiency of the system.
- Establishment of new modern meteorological and correction Differential Global Navigational Satellite System (DGNSS) services based on the previous RIS infrastructure in order to increase efficiency and safety.
- Implementation of weather related messaging in a harmonised European format.
- Provision of high quality FIS data such as depth and water levels.
- Carrying out complex riverbed measurements for the whole Hungarian Danube stretch (1811rkm-1433rkm).
- Upgrade of inland ECDIS charts (complying with 909/2013 Commission Implementing Regulation) in iENC v2.3 format.
The project has positive impacts on the competitiveness of inland waterway transport, modal split, traffic management, service quality, safety and security.
