INFORMATION ABOUT WATER CORRIDOR DANUBE-ODER-ELBE EU STRATEGY FOR THE DANUBE REGION VIENNA/BRATISLAVA 19-21 APRIL 2010 Slide 2 Slide 3 Slide 4 Slide 5 Waterways for transport of the LNG Waterways for transport of the LNG Diversification of supply of strategic materials Slide 6 Connectivity of Danube Oder - Elbe Important transport project of IV. a VI. Transeuropian transport corridors, connection to VII. Transeuropian transport corridor; Important transport project of IV. a VI. Transeuropian transport corridors, connection to VII. Transeuropian transport corridor; Missing part of the network of the waterways according to EUROPEAN AGREEMENT ON MAIN INLAND WATERWAYS OF INTERNATIONAL IMPORTANCE (AGN) Missing part of the network of the waterways according to EUROPEAN AGREEMENT ON MAIN INLAND WATERWAYS OF INTERNATIONAL IMPORTANCE (AGN) E20 Elbe-Danube connection E30 Oder-Danube connection Parametres of the waterway: Parametres of the waterway: Vb. navigation class push-tow formation 185 x 11,4 m, draught 2,8 m navigation lock 190 x 12,5 x 4,0 m minimal width of the navigation way 40 m Blue book from 1998, revised 2006: D-O-E confirmed as a missing link by CZ, A, SK, PL and included in national development plans; Blue book from 1998, revised 2006: D-O-E confirmed as a missing link by CZ, A, SK, PL and included in national development plans; Slide 7 EUROPIAN UNION D-O-E connection is from 1993 in the list of TEN-T Network Inland Waterways; D-O-E connection is from 1993 in the list of TEN-T Network Inland Waterways; Paneuropian conference about inland navigation in Rotterdam 09/2000 recommend support effort to realization connection D-O-E, Paneuropian conference about inland navigation in Rotterdam 09/2000 recommend support effort to realization connection D-O-E, Slide 8 Slide 9 Waterways of the Czech Republic Slide 10 Regulated river Morava downstream the town Hodonn, running along riverrine forests represents practically ready-made stretch of the water corridor D-O-E. Slide 11 First km of the water corridor D-O-E at Lobau by Vienna. Now it is separated by antiflood dyke. Slide 12 First km of the water corridor D-O-E at Lobau by Vienna now. Slide 13 First km of the water corridor D-O-E at Dvn by Bratislava. Confluence Morava and Danube. Slide 14 First km of the water corridor D-O-E in Poland. Port of Kozle and Gliwice channel. Slide 15 Connection of the Gliwice channel to the branch D-O in Poland. Slide 16 Slide 17 Slide 18 Slide 19 Slide 20 Slide 21 Slide 22 Slide 23 Slide 24 Slide 25 Slide 26 Environmental aspects of the D-O-E Connection Example: Example: new trajectory of the corridor in the Oder protected landscape area; newly designed shallow water zones; Slide 27 Slide 28 Slide 29 Slide 30 Slide 31 Importances of water corridor D-O-E Protection against flood Protection against flood Water retention in landscape Water retention in landscape Improvement of water balance Improvement of water balance Stabilization of ecosystem Stabilization of ecosystem Transeuropian waterway Transeuropian waterway Ecological transport Ecological transport Source and regulator of electric energy Source and regulator of electric energy Economy Economy Increasing employment Increasing employment Source of income from tourism Source of income from tourism Agriculture Agriculture Sport a recreation Sport a recreation Development of seats Development of seats Europian investment Europian investment Slide 32 Critical nodal point by the Hodonn. During dry periods the whole discharge is led through a branch canal to the steam power plant. Rest of the water is used for irrigation and water power plant stops working at all. Critical nodal point by the Hodonn. During dry periods the whole discharge is led through a branch canal to the steam power plant. Rest of the water is used for irrigation and water power plant stops working at all. Slide 33 Costs of the Project The whole water corridor D-O-E The whole water corridor D-O-E Danube-Kozle-Pardubice cca 510 km 8 880 600 000 8 880 600 000 public funds of the countries on the waterway European Union funds bank loans bonds direct implementation of project Slide 34 Revenues Even at extremely pessimistic assumptions, the value of IRR exceeds 10 %, i.e. higher than the level of 6 % that is deemed to be an admissible minimum at infrastructure investments. At optimistic assumptions it ranges around 20 %. It is therefore possible to say, without any overstatement, that a similar favourable effectiveness is demonstrated at few investments in the area of infrastructure. 8 years after putting the first stage into operation, the value of the balance starts to be positive and after next 5 years all of the costs spent until then will have been paid back. Here, it is really possible to talk about effectiveness indicators attained only in a very few infrastructure projects. Slide 35 Water corridor D-O-E in present time Traffic load in western part of the Europe reach the critical values and has bad influence to transport capacity and environment. Czech Republic is situated in the centre of the Europe, on the commodity flow between N-W industrial producing centre and S-E consumption centre including India and China. Economical potencial is moving from Western Europe to Middle and Eastern Europe. This development would be faster than constructing of higher transport capacity in new EU members. Water corridor Danube-Oder-Elbe is high-quality offer how to improve european transport corridors with using combine transport and other benefits. Special governmental commission revaluated land protection of the corridor D-O-E in urban plans with positive result! Intergovernmental consultations are in progress in this time.
