Modernizing the navigation signalization system on the Danube–Black Sea Canal
Start date: Feb 28, 2010, End date: Nov 29, 2011 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The navigation signalization system on the Danube-Black Sea Canal is a functional need for the safety of navigation on the canal. Currently, there are signalization systems only at the locks, but the disadvantage is that they are of railway type, with light that is not ensuring a good visibility in the summertime on any direction from between the gates of the locks. There is not any other lighting equipment, and whatever is still in place is damaged, outdated or has a low level of efficiency and requires high maintenance costs.All non-lighting signals shall be modernized, as well as the lights of the locks, the lights at the entry and exit from the canal, as well as the lights from the junctions, the points of entry into the ports and from bridges. The coast embankment lighting systems and the lights from the entry/exit from the ports shall also be modernized.The non-lighting signalization system shall be installed on the slopes of the canal and shall include prohibition signals (boards), obligation signals, restriction signals, recommendation signals, indication signals and km boards (visible from a distance of 1.5 km).The aim of the project is the modernization of the navigation signalization system on the Danube–Black Sea Canal in order to ensure the safety of transport on the canal. The project was completed in November 2011.
