In our new new section “Five questions for ..." Marine-Pilots.com introduces pilots and other market players to our readers in short interviews.

Today we have talked to Mamdouh Albaiji, Senior Harbor Pilot at Ras Tanura at Aramco.

How long have you been working as a pilot and why did you choose this special job?

I have been working as a marine pilot for the last 22 years.

Because it is challenging , unusual . and it is not a routine job. every time you meet a new face of this whole world and a different ship. you will acquire the skills of communications ,exchange ideas and cultures. Pilotage brings the whole world to you.

What is the best thing about your job and why?

The uniqueness of this profession makes pilotage challenging, every task is different even if it was the same ship, the same jetty, other circumstances such as tide , weather and ship’s condition will create a different challenge, Pilots need to be prepared for it. The world oil industry depends on Pilotage and we shall be ready for that.

What was the most remarkable situation during your time as a pilot?

The time when I was certified and granted my pilotage licenses on Saudi Arabian Eastern region oil terminal and ports (Ras Tanura, Juaymah ) and afterwards on, Western Region terminals and ports (Red Sea) like (Duba, South Yanbu (Almujjaz Terminal,Jeddah, Jizan). I am certified for 34 licenses.

Do you have wishes for future improvements for pilots, especially in safety?

I wish to improve pilot embarkation/disembarkation worldwide as we still see accidents around the world during pilotage embarkation/disembarkation.

What is your opinion about Marine-Pilots.com?

Marine-pilots is a platform for pilots, to share ideas and thoughts. its a home for Pilots around the world. It is awesome to have such a platform.
