On 26 March 2019, a marking vessel has been launched in Giurgiu (Romania) by Romanian Transport Minister Razvan Cuc, European Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc, Rhine-Danube Core Network Corridor European Coordinator Karla Peijs and INEA Director Dirk Beckers.

The marking vessel is another milestone in the EU FAIRway Danube project. Within this project, the waterway managers from Danube countries work on the implementation of the “Fairway Rehabilitation and Maintenance Master Plan of the Danube” to ensure navigability throughout the year. Coordinated national action plans for deployment are elaborated and the necessary equipment to carry out pilot activities for hydrological services is contracted.

Under the motto “Committed to the increased safety, efficiency and environmental friendliness of inland navigation”, FAIRway Danube is being carried out in a harmonised way in 6 countries: Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Bulgaria and Romania under the umbrella of the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) of the European Commission.
