BMP have commenced the rollout of the Pilot Information Environment one element of which is the digitisation of our Passage Plans, the primary tool used to communicate with ship Masters and Crews. The system ensures all Pilots have the latest information which is updated on a daily basis. The package also allows for digitised passage plans, customised each pilotage job, to be produced. Unnecessary information, which has the potential to lead to information overload for visiting Ships Masters and Officers is removed from the plans. So far the new technology has been extremely well received and the project is being embedded into the company’s wider Safety Management System.
