The ceremonial laying of the foundation stone for the project Upgrade of Gabčíkovo locks in the Slovak Republic took place on 20 June 2019.
At the same time the christening of a new Surveying vessel and Marking vessel in the framework of the EU FAIRway Danube project took place. Both projects are co-financed from European Union funds.
