Projekt order
Senator for Economic Affairs and Ports of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen

In cooperation with experts for maritime law and nautical aspects, ISL assessed the potential for optimising pilotage in the port of Bremerhaven. The study was commissioned by the Senator for Economic Affairs and Ports of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. A number of scenarios were studied, among which the complete fusion of sea and harbour pilotage or the inclusion of manoeuvres in the outer harbour in sea pilotage. All scenarios were graded with regard to total costs (including necessary trainings), nautical safety and legal aspects.
