It does not happen very often that we have a Eurochannel bound ship to sea. In this case the MARIA P LEMOS, 333 m with a draft of 20,7 m left Rotterdam underway to the Far East .

Today, the MV GOLDEN BRILLIANT, a 225 m long bulk carrier came in at sunrise, underway to EMO terminal, Mississippihaven in Port of Rotterdam. We were assisted by two tugboats, the BUGSIER 12 and MULTRATUG 3. It was cold and very windy, but the Philippino crew dit an outstanding job! The only way to say goodbye these days is the much acclaimed “ Corona Handshake” to master and crew.

Video Cosco Shipping Universe

Found on YouTube. Created by "The Rotterdam Pilot".

As the COVID-19 pandemy restricts our daily lives more and more, Shipping Lines, Ports, Linesmen, Tugs an Pilots will never stop. We are all part in a big chain that keeps moving cargoes anytime, worldwide. Today we may wear face masks, we do not shake hands anymore, and we stay at a safe distance from each other onboard. But we keep them ships moving. This is a short video about the outgoing COSCO SHIPPING UNIVERSE, a 400 meter long ULCS, from Yangtzekanaal, Euromax Terminal to sea.

She has a full China crew. Let’s not forget the sacrifice these ship’s crews are making, since they are no longer allowed ashore or even be relieved at the end of their contract due to the Corona-crisis. They are the real heroes of the logistic chain.

Video Cosco Shipping Galaxy breaks away from Felixstowe as showers passes through. 11th October 2020

Found on YouTube. Created by "Deano C".
The Cosco Shipping Galaxy alongside Felixstowe Berth 9 cargo operations come to an end with the cranes beginning to boom up. Mooring gang in attendance and the tugs begin to go to station. The pilot requests for both to make fast on the centre lead fore and aft. Svitzer Kent makes fast centre lead aft while the Svitzer Sky makes fast centre lead forward. The Sky comes under the bow to pick up the heaving line but the crew slackens the head lines before the last crane had boomed up. Sky manages to get the heaving line so they tie their gear onto the line to be winched onboard onto the bollard. One of the crew members signals to the Sky to say they were fast forward. Kent makes fast aft once a couple of lines were let go.

The pilot gives the order to single up to springs. Once VTS had given clearance to depart, the springs were released and Kent builds to a 50% pull away from the quay, Sky forward builds to 50% aswell before the Kent increases to full power. After a while, the pilot gets the Sky to go all easy.

As the Galaxy moves away from the berth box, the pilot runs the engine astern to back her further into the channel. The pilot begins to use the bow thrusters and then gets the Sky to build to a full pull to get the bow onto a southerly heading. Kent drops in astern as the pilot runs the engine ahead, Sky eases and comes in to let go from forward.

Once the Sky had been released they move around to the port quarter to escort around them around the corner if the Galaxy got into difficulty. Safely around the Corner both tugs were released.

Video AIMPA’s Webinar on “Reconceptualising Indian Maritime Pilotage" on 24th Oct 2020.

Found on YouTube. Created by "Marine-Pilots". Recorded on 2020-10-24.

The need to hold such a webinar was felt from the interaction over several months of AIMPA members through its President, Capt. Gajanan Karanjikar, with Capt Simon Meyjes and Capt.Ravi Nijjer - both instrumental in the thorough upgrade of pilotage operations Safety management systems in parts of Australia. From these interactions, AIMPA has come to the firm conclusion that a thorough upgrade of maritime pilotage management systems in India is necessary. Holding a webinar would be a good start to help bring about such change.

The webinar was held on 24th Oct 2020 on a platform graciously provided by the Institute of Marine Engineers of India (IMEI). Maritime Fraternity supported the event as ‘must have’ and professional bodies like Nautical Institute and company of Master mariners supported the event full-fledged. As contacted with Chirp Maritime UK, their Marine Operations director Mr Jeff Parfitt not only supported the event but also agreed to be one of the speakers.

As many as seven accomplished experts in the field of maritime pilotage management were requested to share their views using short presentations of about 10 minutes each. Two moderators, each a very accomplished maritime professional, were also impanelled.
The intent of the webinar was to spark ideas and opinions which, after some analysis and moderation, could be put up by AIMPA as a set of recommendations for both policies as well as decision makers in India to consider.

The response to the webinar was very encouraging. As many as 500+ persons registered. For students in various maritime training institutes in India as well the wider public too, the webinar proceedings were streamed live via Facebook and Youtube.
