TINA Vienna won a tender process held by the city of Krakow (Poland) for the development of a feasibility study for the "Krakow Canal", a flood relief canal whose construction has been discussed for many years as part of the flood protection measures on the Vistula in the city of Krakow.
The objectives of the study included:
- the preparation of a technical concept for the construction of aflood protection canal in Krakow taking account of the utilisation of the canal for recreational purposes and navigation
- the evaluation of the impact of the project on regional planning and urban development
- the assessment of the implementation potential from a technical, legal, economic and organisational perspective
The project was launched in September 2007 and was implemented under the lead of TINA Vienna, supported by DonauConsult and the Vienna-based civil engineering office Dr. Paula, and by two Polish partners, Hydroprojekt from Warsaw and the architects' office IPG from Krakow.
The project, whose implementation provided an opportunity for Vienna to contribute the experience and know-how it has acquired in the construction of the city's flood protection system and the Donauinsel (Danube Island) and hence to pass on Viennese know-how, was completed in 2008.
