APDL - Administração dos Portos do Douro
Leixões e Viana do Castelo
The Core Inland port of Oporto currently faces severe safety constraints. The Action aims at improving the navigation conditions of the riverbed in this section of the Douro river. It is located on the Inland Waterway Core Network and is part of the Global Project “Douro’s Inland Waterway (DIW) 2020” that aims at providing a safe and sustainable level of navigability to the Portuguese section of the river.
The Action addresses the port accessibility, implementation of supporting infrastructure, introduction of environmental friendly energy and improvement of ICT applications and communication tools. It will also address training and preparation as well as the necessary tools for emergency situations. The Action will contribute to cohesion policy, support economic development and enhance multimodal integration.
