Project ID: PA1A020
Implementation of river information services is recognized as one of the priority projects in the Master Plan for IWW Transport in Serbia (2006). For the development of an efficient and sustainable transport system in the whole region, River Information Services (RIS) needed to be developed on the Serbian section of the Danube.
1. Supply of necessary RIS equipment
2. System integration
3. Supervision of implementation
Serbian River Information Services now cover the entire stretch of the Danube River in Serbia, including cross-border sections which form a crucial part of the system. Implementation of RIS in Serbia is harmonized with the existing RIS systems in Europe.
Main beneficiaries of the project were the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy and the Directorate for Inland Waterways. Within Serbian administration, RIS is being used by Iron Gate I and II navigation locks, Customs, Ministry of Interior (river police, border police, gendarmerie, sector for urgent situation – the fire brigade). The number of commercial users has been increased.
