viadonau is a modern and efficiently run company that operates waterways and executes sovereign functions on behalf of the federal authorities with regard to waterways and waterway transport. In addition to the tasks of federal waterway administration and transport development, viadonau carries out pioneering work by planning and managing the Integrated River Engineering Project to the east of Vienna as well as operating a navigation information system called Danube River Information Services (DoRIS).
viadonau considers itself not only an infrastructure operator but also a competent business partner and service provider that ensures the availability of the Danube as a safe, high-capacity transport route. In co-operation with both national and international partners, viadonau implements innovative projects designed to increase safety and efficiency of inland waterway transport. Thus, the company contributes significantly to the safeguarding of business locations for Austrian companies as well as to the environmentally friendly management of future traffic volumes along the Danube corridor.
“Besides its role as waterway operator, viadonau is actively promoting and supporting inland waterway transport. Technical innovation and new markets are key-elements to increasing the attractiveness and performance of IWT. NOVIMAR addresses both aspects and hopefully will help preparing IWT for tomorrows challenges.”
