Romania: EU to Support Green Danube Port

The European Union has granted €400,000 from the TEN-T Programme to co-finance a series of studies to promote the development of an eco-efficient port engineering and operation system in the Romanian Port of Giurgiu.

The studies contribute to the realisation of the “Waterway axis Rhine/Meuse-Main-Danube”.

The studies, selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Multi-Annual Programme, are part of the larger global project which aims to convert the Port of Giurgiu into the first “Green Danube Port” based on integrated energy-efficiency concepts and comprehensive environmental measures for intermodal ports.

They will first take stock of the current situation by undertaking a technical and operational analysis, a market analysis and an environmental assessment, which will be followed be specific studies to support the introduction of innovative technology in the port.

The ultimate objective is for the study to deliver the final design of the new Intermodal Port of Giurgiu and also define its business model.
