This event lies in the past.
16.10.2022 - 21.10.2022
The American Pilots’ Association (APA), one of the country’s oldest trade associations, has been the national association for the piloting profession since 1884. Virtually all of the more than 1,200 State-licensed pilots working in the 24 U.S. coastal States, as well as all of the U.S.-registered pilots operating in the Great Lakes system, belong to APA-member pilot groups. These pilots handle well over 90% of all large ocean-going vessels moving in international trade in U.S. waterways. The role and official responsibility of these pilots is to protect the safety of navigation and the marine environment on the waters for which they are licensed.

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.
