This event lies in the past.
25 March 2021

Can navigators have blind trust in either instrument or visual navigation – of course not, a balance is needed. In this webinar experienced Master and Pilot Capt Ed Verbeek reflects on his experience developing using and teaching navigation techniques. He explores the use of navigation layers and predictive algorithms, looking at ECDIS and PPU. He will also give examples of how the PPU can support both Pilots and ship’s crews and draws on lessons from the aviation industry.

Video Magnet Holder - Gangway/Pilot Ladder Fixing Equ. (from Korea Ocean Tech)

published on 4 July 2019

SOLAS/IMO/IMPA Regulations require additional safety measurements for pilot's boarding and disembarkation since recently. These magnetic holders of two types, one is manually set and the other is a remotely controlled one, fixes both pilot ladder and accommodation ladder (gangway) strongly onto the hull of the ship. Thus, the pilot can climb more safely. We are negotiating with ISO, IMO, IMPA etc in order to standardize these items for pilot safety.
