Waiting berth for the dismantling/remaking of pushed convoys at the junction between the Danube–Black Sea Canal and the Poarta Alba–Midia Navodari Canal

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).
