Rolled out in the framework of the DIONYSUS project, the Danube Ports Day annual events are meant (i) to continue the well-established practice in the DAPHNE project by holding events dedicated to port affairs providing insights into the policy framework and concrete examples of development works and projects as well as (ii) to trigger future key actions meant to place Danube Region ports as ideal locations for setting up businesses relying on waterborne infrastructure.
This 2020 event shall facilitate a structured discussion on port development opportunities touching on topics such as (a) shore side electricity and (b) integrated logistics. Shore-side electricity, which allows ships to turn off their engines and plug into an electrical grid while at berth, has been steadily growing in popularity as a reliable solution to cutting emissions as well as reducing noise and vibration. First-hand information will be provided based on the results of several EU & national funded projects, whereas, at the same time, two fleet operators will present from a user’s perspective related prerequisites. In relation to the second topic, two port operators from Romania and Moldova will introduce their logistics solutions to efficiently accommodate intermodal transport to and from their ports, whereas one logistics service provider from Hungary will offer examples of fully integrated logistics solutions making use of the waterways.
