Video Docking a Mega Ship -- How Marine Pilot Manoeuvres a Ship in Port?
Found on YouTube. Created by "Marine Insight Unscripted".
Docking a Mega ship in a busy port requires an experienced marine pilot to ensure safe ship docking operation. This video is an excellent overview of how marine pilot manoeuvres a ship into the port. Manoeuvring is an operation during which a vessel enters or exits coastal waters of a country, crosses several ships on the way, and proceeds towards or departs from a berth or jetty of a port.
Shot By an experienced marine pilot Syatibi Azhari, who assisted MSC Ambra, one of the world's longest ship (400m), to dock safely in its assigned jetty in the Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) - Malaysia
The marine pilot of the ship makes an effective contribution towards safe navigation in confined waters and the approaching port, of which, they have an up to date local knowledge.
