Brisbane Marine Pilots (BMP) was one of the first pilot services in the world to routinely use Personal Piloting Units (PPU) as an aid for decision making when piloting vessels. With more than two decades of experience with PPU, BMP recognises the importance of this independent navigational assistance tool and has an excellent understanding of how it can be used to support decision making during the pilotage task.
With ever increasing ship sizes and improving technologies BMP has now rolled out the latest in PPU technology to each of our pilots. The roll out process includes updating related work instructions and procedures, training for all pilots on the new system and establishing maintenance and support processes.
The introduction of this improved technology assists in supporting the safe handling of larger vessels wanting to use the Port. It ensures Brisbane remains a leader in term of capacity to handle future trade.
