Safeguarding the EU’s Sea Area With Frontex Border Staff Training

  PTI Edition 76 - Cyber Risk & Security

Frontex was established in 2004. Before that, ad-hoc centres administered border management. The reason for establishing Frontex was an increased focus on migration, asylum seekers and security within the EU. With an increased workload on the Southern sea borders, a need for international co-operation increased. One of Frontex’s tasks is to ensure safe navigation in coastal areas and ports. Frontex arranges three or four Maritime Border Surveillance Officer-courses every year. Aboa Mare’s co-operation with Frontex on training began five years ago. Frontex training is now mainly conducted as simulator exercises, focusing on various aspects of managing sea areas. The expertise of both parties has since developed and deepened. The aim of the training was to enable controlling and safeguarding the movement of people in the maritime regions of the EU.

The Future for Mega Bulk Terminals

  PTI Edition 75 - Mega-Ports & Mega-Terminals

The world is currently experiencing a noticeable recovery in the petroleum and mineral resources sectors after suffering a major downturn for the last two years. This downturn saw market prices for nearly every resource commodity sink to such low levels that production was curtailed to minimal levels by many companies as they struggled to stay in business.

The Value of Simulation Training

  PTI Edition 75 - Mega-Ports & Mega-Terminals

During the last World Maritime Day on September 25, 2016, the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon sent a message: “Maritime education holds the future of shipping in its hands”. According to the International Maritime Organization, if the global fleet increases in size by 70% between now and 2030, the number of officers needed should increase by up to 850,000.

Yilport Terminals: Global Logistics Center Integrates Business

  PTI Edition 75 - Mega-Ports & Mega-Terminals

Yilport’s journey started in 2004, when Chairman Robert Yuksel Yildirim envisioned bringing world-class terminal service to his hometown in Turkey. The success story began at Yilport Gebze, and expanded to deliver a high standard of terminal operation worldwide. Yilport Holding Inc. was established in August, 2011 as a subsidiary of the Yildirim Group, become the first private terminal operator in Turkey.

The New Era of Container Shipping

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

In the new era we see, vendors of solutions will date to venture out their niches and look for solutions that connect and interchange information in real time to provide actionable visibility and enable efficient decision making. These solutions will be possible because new standards for information exchange and a set of common semantics have evolved.

Leveraging Virtual Reality

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

The perception of automation is that robots relieve human beings from repetitive tasks and that process automation brings stability and predictable performance to a container terminal, thereby increasing safety. What we often fail to mention is that even with the implementation of automation, accidents will still occur and technology can still fail.

Port Security Through Innovative E-Learning

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

Maritime Security and particularly the security of port facilities and ships assume significant importance in the light of security challenges facing them like terrorism and piracy, among others and consequentially training of maritime security personnel takes centre-stage.

Consistent Training: The Key to Port Success

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

Today’s trainee is Rory, and it's his very first time operating a ship-to-shore crane. Yet, in gusting 40mph winds in a cab 53 metres from the Liverpool quayside, he's already moved five stacks of 40ft containers from a mega-ship sitting in the River Mersey to a waiting trailer below on the new £400m Liverpool2 container terminal.

How Simulation Improves Port Operations

  PTI Edition 73 - The Automation, Training & Simulation Issue

Vessel sizes have increased exponentially due in part to the new Panama Canal. But even before it opened, the pressure was there for larger ships. In the 70s, we saw larger tankers, VLCCs and ULCCs appeared at our sea buoys.
