Pre-feasibility study new inland waterways Argentina

Published: 30 March 2018

This pre-feasibility study on new inland waterways assesses current and projected transport of Argentinian products, costs and benefits of new inland waterways, water requirements and availability for new waterways, possible interference of new waterways with natural drainage, and the possibility of using waterways for drainage of waterlogged areas.

Expert River engineering, morphology and fluvial morphodynamics Erik Mosselman  visited Buenos Aires to kick-off this pre-feasibility study.

Deltares leads a consortium with partners STC-NESTRA and STC-Group Holding BV to study transport economics and hydrology as key components for the pre-feasibility study. The consortium co-operates with the Argentinian research institute INA.

A study tour to the Netherlands by a broad Argentinian delegation to visit the European system of inland waterways and to meet Dutch experts in the inland waterway transport sector will be part of the cooperation also.
