Project ID: PA1A129
Six critical sectors along the Serbian stretch of the Danube constitute an obstacle to navigation during low water periods. The removal of the bottlenecks will strengthen the competitiveness of the Danube as a mode of transport.
The purpose of this project is to execute river training structures and dredging works at six critical locations along the Serbian sector of the Danube between Backa Palanka and Belgrade (rkm 1287 to rkm 1195) in order to improve the navigation conditions during low water periods.
The works have to be executed within a construction period of three years.
The objective of Environmental Monitoring and Supervision is to provide technical assistance services during the river training and dredging works on critical sections along the Serbian stretch of the Danube. The service contractor will undertake the role of the engineer as specified in the FIDIC conditions of contract (Conditions of Contract for Construction for Building and Engineering Works Designed by Employer) and assist the Contracting Authority with coordination, supervision and project as well as site management.
The project is being implemented through the realisation of two contracts:
1. Hydro-technical and dredging works on the critical sectors on the Danube River
2. Supervision and environmental monitoring of hydro-technical and dredging works on the critical sectors on the Danube River
The whole inland navigation sector in the Danube Region will benefit from the planned measures. Resolved bottlenecks in one sector of the Danube have a positive impact on all Danube riparian states involved in inland navigation.
The users of the waterway are the main beneficiaries of the project.
