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

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

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.

DaHar – Danube Inland Harbour Development

Transnational project (AT, SK, HU, SI, RS, BG) The project paved the way for inland harbours of small and medium-sized Danube cities to develop themselves in a coordinated, sustainable way with respect to their urban environment by utilising the logistical and multi-modal development capacities of their ports and port areas and by developing their ports in a harmonised manner.

Integrated River Engineering Project / Catalogue of Measures for the Danube East of Vienna

National project (AT) The Catalogue of measures for the Danube east of Vienna is the result of an integrative planning process and a multi-year concept based on a pilot project phase, offering compatible solutions for both navigation and ecology. It includes the granulometric improvement of the river bed / sediment management, the new and re-construction of groynes, side arm reconnections, river bank restorations and the stabilization of scour holes. The interdisciplinary planning approach with strong stakeholder participation shall guarantee optimal solutions for all involved parties.
