Implementation of Technical Survey Project “Sunken German Second World War Fleet from the Danube River near Prahovo”
SMAC monitors the implementation of technical survey project “Sunken German Second World War Fleet from the Danube River near Prahovo”, Negotin, No. 0300/23, which was developed based on the request by the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure of the Republic of Serbia.
The contractor is a consortium consisting of the companies Millennium Team ltd. and Aqua Mont Service ltd.
The location where the technical survey is carried out is located in Prahovo between 857 km and 862 km on the common section of the Danube river between Serbia and Romania, Municipality of Negotin.
The implementation of the first and second phases of the project is in progress, which aim to:
– examine shipwrecks of the sunken German fleet and the river bed for the presence of ERW using appropriate technical interventions, on the stretch of the Danube River between Serbia and Romania from 857 km to 862 km and at a depth of up to 23.22 m above sea level.
– determine the existence of ERW on and within each individual shipwreck (type of ERW, their condition, quantity, place and position, depth) and provide direct evidence of it.
– determine the existence of ERW in the river bed (type of ERW, their condition, quantity, place and position, depth), provide direct evidence of this and determine precise boundaries of the riverbed surface where ERW pollution is present and where it is not.
– analysis of data on the state of ERW and assessment of which ERW would cause an explosion when moved and as such must be destroyed at the place of discovery and ERW that can be moved and as such can be safely extracted, transported and destroyed at another location.
