Need  and  added  value  for  the  Danube  Region  Strategy

The project aims to close gaps, to remove bottlenecks and to overcome infrastructural barriers along the Danube waterway network.


The Action aims to implement the Fairway Rehabilitation and Maintenance Master Plan for the Danube and its tributaries by modernising the dredging equipment and fleet of the Slovak Water-management Enterprise (SVP) as well as the Water construction state enterprise (VV) and by removing bottlenecks on the Slovak Danube stretch.

SVP will modernise the chain-bucket excavator and will purchase 2 new belt excavators which will be installed on a floating platform. VV will purchase 1 suction dredger and 1 belt excavator.

The project aims to deliver a list of priority works to be implemented as pilot rehabilitation dredging works to reinstate a good navigation status in the Danube section of the Hrušov reservoir (rkm 1845 to rkm 1868).
