The 50-year-old pilot of the port of the Veneto Estuary, an effective pilot in the lagoon since 2002, was unanimously elected by the new Fedepiloti Board of Directors formed yesterday, 23 June 2020, during the 73rd Fedepiloti National Assembly. Luigi Mennella, originally from Casamicciola Terme (NA), is the first President in the history of Fedepiloti coming from the guild of Venice and in the last two years has held the role of Vice President alongside the outgoing President com.te Francesco Bandiera, Pilot of the Port of the guild of Olbia.

The role of Vice President that for the next two years will be held by com.te Massimiliano Fabricatore Irace, chief pilot of the Guild of Pilots of Salerno, also elected by the new Board of Directors and for the first time in his career will hold a managerial role within the Federation. To complete the command framework there will still be com.te Giacomo Scarpati who continues his mandate as Director of Fedepiloti.

The new President is expected immediately by important challenges to relaunch a category hard hit during the emergency by Covid-19. These are his first official words: "I thank the Drivers' category and the Board of Directors for the trust placed in me by honoring me with this prestigious position. I hope to fulfill my mandate in the best possible way".

Grounding container vessel Shahraz and MV Samudra Sakti in Singapore Strait May 10 2020

What happened?

MV "Shahraz" and MV "Samudra Sakti I" had run aground to the shallow Batu Berhanti in the Indonesian territorial waters within 6 minutes, which is surveyed with minimum water depths of 8.3 m in the northern part and up to 0.5 m in the southern part . It is located south of TSS Singapore Strait’s eastbound traffic lane.

A chain of events which must be described as extra ordinary rarity. Which naturally raises questions about how may this happen..

Video SafeTug in Action

At 244 meters long, 42 meters wide, made up of 57,000 tons of steel and carrying approximately $41 million dollars’ worth of cargo, when the personnel at Teesport bring the Agathonissos – and vessels like her – into dock, there’s no room for error.

Watch this video to see how SafeTug helps to simplify this complex process, giving tug skippers, ship pilots and port personnel the vital information and situational awareness they need to bring her in safely.
