Niugini Pilots Limited (NPL) is a Papua New Guinean-owned Marine Pilotage company operating in various ports in Papua New Guinea. From the company’s incorporation in 2004, the company struggled to enter the pilotage market until 2012, when the market was finally free owing to the intervention on the Independent Consumer and Competition Commission (ICCC) of Papua New Guinea. The market was freed up largely because of the significant and tireless efforts of our Chief Pilot and Managing Director, Captain Max Taikika Stoessel.

Niugini Pilots is dedicated to operating in accordance with International Maritime Standards, focused on exceeding client’s expectations and providing safe and efficient pilotage services in PNG waters. By this, Captain Max and his management team does his best in ensuring that our Marine Pilots are knowledgeable, well-trained, experienced, licensed and sent for additional training whenever an opportunity comes through.
