The common Croatian and Serbian part of Danube river stretch from 1433.1 – 1295.5 rkm is considered critical in terms of navigation conditions and dissemination of sediment and ice. Therefore, the main objective of the project is to define the present situation through monitoring (ecological, hydro-morphological, water quality,… ), propose measures which would ensure smooth and safe river navigation while preserving and protecting existing natural habitats and protected sites.

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).

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.
