The Swedish Club announced a new loss prevention pilot project, called ‘Trade Enabling Loss Prevention (TELP)’, which leverages technology in a bid to provide ships with timely advice when they are approaching areas of particular risk, to assist them to trade more safely.
CHIRP issued its 54th Maritime Feedback, focusing on several reports outlining the anomalies between a vessel’s AIS and ECDIS, and positions obtained from a PPU or by visual/radar position fixing. The incident results to the fact that incorrect AIS offsets at the installation stage can also cause a great deal of confusion and may require a visit from a technician to access the pass code.
The role of the ‘lookout’ on board ships is currently more important than ever, considering the increasing traffic volumes at sea and the more complex equipment used in bridge systems. A watchkeeper must understand the equipment available and determine the risk of collision.
