Full deployment AIS transponders Germany/the Netherlands

The aim of this particular action is to install inland AIS (Automatic Identification System) transponders on all vessels longer than 20 metres or all shorter vessels that operate commercially and use the main waterways (class IV and higher) in Germany and the Netherlands. The plan of the German and Dutch authorities, based on existing navigation databases, calls for 9,800 vessels to be equipped with inland AIS. By doing so, real-time tracking and tracing according to the RIS guidelines will be enabled.

This project is part of a global project of implementing Directive 2005/44/EC. Total costs € 17,959,700 (of which €4,343,940 EC TEN-contribution)
