NAVIGATING BIG SHIPS UP THE YARRA RIVER

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO SAFELY MANOEUVER A BIG SHIP UP THE YARRA RIVER?

EXPERIENCE – Years of training including observation of senior pilots, tug utilisation and manoeuvring simulations.

SYSTEMS – A systemised approach including: documented pre-arrival passage planning, DUKC (Dynamic Under Keel Clearance) calculations, bridge clearance calculation, traffic management, environmental factors, propulsion configurations and much more.

INSTRUMENTATION – Customised software and hardware developed inhouse to ensure position and heading accuracy independent of the ship’s equipment.

COLLABORATION – Working together with the ships bridge team and port services to enhance situational awareness in order to achieve the highest safety outcome.

RESULT – The safe delivery of over 3 million containers per year at a value of over $150 billion to Victoria’s economy.
