The Port of Rotterdam Authority announced that it is developing five permanent berths for barges on the Maas side of the Eiland van Brienenoord. The location has been an anchorage for barges for many years, but the new berths intend to boost safety in the river.
The UK MCA issued a report for port operations, providing a detailed guidance on a number of issues relevant to the management of ports and other marine facilities, as a supplement to the Port Marine Safety Code. The publication is designed to provide general guidance and examples of how an organisation could meet its commitments in terms of compliance with the Code.
The Port of Rotterdam’s top priorities are still safety and ensuring that processes in the port area run efficiently. No major nautical incidents occurred in the port during 2017, and even though the number of ship movements increased, the number of minor incidents was lower than in previous years.
Over the past year, the port of Amsterdam saw the total number of maritime accidents in 32, down from 44 the previous year. Around 7,000 seagoing vessels arrived in the North Sea Canal Area in 2017, including nearly 4,700 in the Port of Amsterdam, while approximately 40,000 barges called at the port region.
