Intertanko Guide to Safe Navigation (2nd Edition-2021) released


published on 28 December 2021 300 -

Shipping has evolved significantly over the years. Research in maritime safety and operations over the past few decades has been intensive and has resulted in significant improvements. Chart carriage requirements are now satisfied by using Electronic Chart Display Information Systems (ECDIS), which require careful handling and functional expertise by the end users. When used correctly, this technological leap offers a high level of navigational safety, while at the same time reducing the workload and increasing situational awareness.

INTERTANKO’s Guide to Safe Navigation (Including ECDIS) has become the standard reference publication used by navigators. The first edition was published in 2017 and through the combined efforts of industry multidisciplinary subject matter experts, this second edition has been enhanced to reflect current best practice and legislation to ensure
that it continues to maintain its position as a definitive reference guide for modern-day navigators in the vessel’s wheelhouse.

by Marine-Pilots.com - published on 12 July 2021

When a vessel navigates in confined waters, such as in a harbour or narrow channel, it is well known among experienced pilots that the ship handling is greatly affected by the hydrodynamic forces and moments acting between ship and bank or sidewall of the channel.

Video Presentation of manned ship models at Port Revel Shiphandling Training Centre

published on 24 October 2019

Port Revel is used for shiphandling training of maritime pilots, masters and officers on a 5 ha lake with 11 manned model ships representing 20 vessels, and 4 tugs at scale 1:25 and DGPS tracking system. Instructors are former maritime pilots.
