This project would improve mobility and communication between different modes of Transport, by establishing the necessary criteria for an international class IV waterway, construction of hydrotechnical structures and construction of a river port. The project would provide direct access to short and therefore cheaper traffic routes (compared to alternative routes) from the former Soviet Union to the markets of Central, Southern Europe and in the opposite direction.
Improving navigability on the Hungarian section of the Danube: extended study to prepare implementation
The study aims at improving the navigation along the Hungarian section of the Danube by carrying out preparatory studies for the removal of 31 bottlenecks.
The study was conducted between 2008 and 2011 and aimed to prepare the elimination of fords and bottlenecks on the Hungarian stretch of the Danube (from river-km 1,708 to 1,433).
Development and installation of the navigation monitoring and electronic fairway marking system on the Danube River (AtoNs)
The project's overall objective is to procure and install the equipment for the navigation monitoring and fairway marking system on the Danube River in Serbia. The new navigation buoys will be allocated on the Danube River in Serbia and will be equipped with AIS AtoN transponders that will enable real-time monitoring of the condition of the marking system and at the same time make the navigation buoys visible for all participants in navigation by using the AIS and ECDIS systems on the ship deck.
The project would have resulted in co-modal logistic solutions and vessel solutions (hull configurations, power and propulsion trains, special business cases).
The preparation of the Master Plan, Feasibility study and 20 case studies for the overall ports development along the Hungarian section of the Danube will be coordinated with the “Master Plan and feasibility study for the Komárno port” (PA1A141) elaborated by Public Ports jsc. of Slovakia. The outcome of the studies will lay the ground for future port development by setting strategic directions and development priorities after 2020.
The project aims at improving the accessibility of the port and to strengthen the multimodal TEN-T Core Network. Activities focus on the works for the construction and the electrification of new railway tracks in the port area, and the improvement of some level crossing points.
The project's objective is to develop an integrated inland port ICT application to streamline administrative formalities through better use of information, communication and positioning technologies.
