On LinkedIn P&O Maritime Logistics posted:

Throughout the business, safety is our top priority. We have an unwavering commitment to the safety of our employees and operations across the globe, ensuring that we have the best systems and procedures in place. In line with this commitment, we are pleased to have upgraded our Pilot Portable Units (PPUs) in Jebel Ali with the latest technologies. With both vessel size and traffic at ports and seaways increasing, technology is becoming indispensable for keeping people safe and supporting decision-making onboard a vessel under pilotage.

The PPUs are made by TRENZ and supported by Wärtsilä software, and with their lightweight and compact design, they are designed to assist our pilots with their navigation during pilotage. Equipped with impressive and precise technology, such as up-to-date charts, our pilots can make more informed decisions and minimise risks by using reliable, real-time data.

We look forward to hearing from our pilots in Jebel Ali about their experiences using these devices. We continue to integrate the latest technology into our safety procedures and upgrade the PPUs used in other regions.

by Captain Ricardo Caballero "Themaritimepilot" - published on 15 June 2020

I am not a computer savvy. My knowledge in programming and robotics and those sort of things is nil. I get lost in the sea of social media and easily entangle myself in the web. All I have done for the last 25 years or so is to pilot ships through the Panama Canal. However, during the last couple of years I have done my best to catch up with technology, since it has enhanced our possibilities and improved safety in our field. But still, I have to admit that I am way behind the new guys in this important issue.
