Book launch: “Marine Pilotage – The Arabic book”


published on 22 May 2021 173 -

The Loud voices of Pilots, shipowners and organizations interested in maritime pilotage, recently called for the need to deepen and study the field of maritime pilotage. Particularly, after the noticeable increase in the percentage of maritime accidents during the act of the pilotage service and the perceived inflation in the sizes and tonnage of ships.

“Marine Pilotage – The Arabic book” by Ahmed Sati, Marine Pilot at P&O Maritime, is the first of its kind in Arabic language and specifically concerned with maritime pilotage, it is a reference book and introduction to the basics of the Marine Pilot's work for Arabic readers who are willing to take the challenge and join the force of Pilotage and to act as a refresher to the experienced Pilots who are practicing Pilotage in local or foreign organizations. The book was written based on the knowledge, practical experience and the reality of field work, in addition to the foreign references specialized in Pilotage and Ship handling. The idea of the book came because of the scarcity of information available to the Arab Marine Pilots and the different local requirements for operating a pilotage service from one country to another. 

The book was reviewed by specialists in the field of maritime pilotage from several Arab countries and internationally known Pilotage Organizations to benefit from their experience in the field and to exchange practical experiences.
