National project (RO) The main goal of the waiting berth for convoys is to facilitate the convoys’ assembling/dismantling operations, including the assurance of cargo safety as well as the simple vessel’s mooring, and to lower the unit waterway transport cost. The waiting berth is located on the left bank of the Danube–Black Sea Canal, upstream from the junction with the Poarta Albă–Midia Năvodari Canal. It is 300 m long and has three piers and a quay depth of 5.5 m.
Rehabilitation of the right bank of the Danube river at km 1,322 (Sotin)
National project (HR) The Danube river near the village of Sotin at river-km 1,322 causes erosion of the extremely dilapidated right bank which might result in the undermining and subsequent collapse of the bank. A direct effect of lateral erosion of the river is the decrease of water depths, especially at low-water periods, thus negatively affecting inland waterway transport. The project foresees river engineering measures on this sector (sill and two T-groynes).

RoRIS – Traffic vessel management and information system on the Danube, Danube–Black Sea Canal and Poarta Alba–Midia Navodari Canal
National project (RO) Within the project a most complex system in the area of Intelligent Systems of Naval Transport was developed, taking into account that it covers all ports with significant traffic on the Romanian Danube sector.
T4P – Train for Ports
Proposal for a transnational project (NL, DE, RO) The project intended to address sectoral changes and human issues, specifically needed skills, as a component of wider efforts to make EU ports more competitive and resource-efficient. It intended to feature an analysis of the status quo of formal and informal education and training with respect to port activities, look into future challenges and demands in education and training of port workers and design a roadmap for a European Port Training Policy.
Implementation of River Information Services in Serbia
National project (RS) Serbian River Information Services cover the entire stretch of the Danube waterway in Serbia, including cross-border sections which form a crucial part of the system. Implementation of RIS in Serbia is harmonized with the existing RIS systems in Europe.
BULRIS – Establishment of River Information System in the Bulgarian part of the Danube river
National project (BG) As EU member state Bulgaria has the obligation to establish a RIS system, which is a part of the trans-European network concerning the technical guidelines for the planning, implementation and operational use of river information services in order to ensure effective and safe navigation on the inland waterways.
