Today i want to present you the largest romanian project ever build.
The Danube-Black Sea Canal.
This man made canal shortens the distance between the Danube and the Black Sea with 300km and aling with the Danube and Danube-Main-Rin Canal creates a paneuropean navigation corridor.
The D-BS Canal also has the role of cooling the Cernavoda Nuclear reactors 1,2 and 3.
The presence of this canal has helped the development of Constanta.
The Port of Constanta was build under king Carol 1 by the romanian engineer Anghel Saligny (wikipedia info about him). In the communist era the port knows a large scale development and becomes the largest at the Black Sea, the 4th in Europe and the 7th in the world.
After the fall of communism the port knows a dark period untill 2000.
After 2000 Constanta Port reclaimes his part as a junction between Asia and Europe and both local (like GSP, SNC, Oil Terminal, Rompetrol, Chimpex) and foreign investors (Dubai World Ports, WDP, etc) started new investments in the port. Dubai World Ports build the largest Black Sea Container Terminal." target="_blank">Video Link
