When a ship navigates in head seas, it's hull is subjected to sever shocks which induce violent ship motions. As well trained and duly experienced navigators, we have the ability to provide our response to this through alteration of the course and speed of the ship to the required extent.

However, to accomplish safe navigation in head seas, it's advisable to have more reliable ship handling techniques backed by theoretical knowledge as to why these phenomena are created and what shall be done to avoid the generation of these critical effects in addition to possessing sea-going experience.

This instructional video is highly recommended to the ship navigators and particularly to the bridge teams of those vessel regularly navigating in the above mentioned conditions. By watching this video, they will find some information that will be of practical use and help them provide safe navigation of their vessels. The video will also serve as a great training tool for the newcomers and students who shall use it as a very effective supplementary training material.

An excellent training video which will be greatly appreciated by the ship navigators. The audience for this training would consist of the future mariners, however it will also interest professional seamen since they may find something new. Every seafarer knows of the strong winds and heavy seas that are commonly caused by the fully developed tropical cyclones.

Such cyclones and typhoons sometimes dominate the seas with devastating forces. What is expected for navigators to ensure safe and economical voyages in such an environment? The content of this video will shed some light on this and will help to find the answers to the questions related to the navigation of the vessel in the difficult to handle conditions of the head and countering seas.

Needless to say that this instructional film will serve as a greatly useful visual aid when used as a supplement to the theoretical information obtained from the books. We recommend this one to the navigators who regularly face the necessity to handle their vessels in the above stated conditions.

The present training video film was developed to supplement this training booklet and with the ultimate intention to provide a proper and easily accessible introduction to all major technologies that are making up the Target Tracking Devices; another aim of the authors was to describe to the trainees how exactly subject tracking devices are related to each other. The technologies that have been dealt with in this training video are the ARPA, AIS and ECDIS.

The training is primarily intended for the deck team including both senior and junior ship officers. Radar sweeping the surrounding sea, pinpointing ships, coastlines, every sweep plotting a new situation; by using this information together with the information on the speed and course of your vessel, it has long been possible to make a vector triangle identifying any targets. Of course, taking into account the congestion of the shipping lanes with dozens of vessels showing the same sea space and some vessels travelling at high speeds, calculations need to be swift and accurate.

Today, Singapore is there among the busiest sea ports in the world. The permanent and steady growth witnessed in trading shipping activities over the past decades subject port has seen the dramatical increases in the numbers of shipping arrivals and it continues to evolve keeping up this ever growing demand.

The bunkering in Singapore is a multi-billion dollars center generating broader economic spin-offs for the local economy. Being a real driver of the local industry, the MPA, standing for the Maritime Port Authority of Singapore, is playing the pro-active and dynamic role in the development and further growth of the bunkering industry of Singapore port, working very closely with absolutely all stakeholders in order for the effective bunkering standards to get developed. This video will shed some light on the bunkering in Singapore.

The content of this instructional video is intended to highlight the major effects that such passages commonly impose on maneuvering characteristics of the vessel. When the ship enters shallow water area and has either to navigate close to the banks or pass other ships, the ships of any size may get quite heavily influenced by the so-called "induced hydrodynamic effects" sometimes resulting in groundings and even ship collisions, and this is what the video focuses on.

Apart from this training video, there are three more available at Libramar addressing the anchoring, ship squat and shallow water effects, and in-harbor ship handling, all of them are equally important for the mariners so we definitely recommend all students of ship navigation and all professional mariners engaged in handling their ships in the conditions dealt with in these films, to download all of them and go through the content very carefully to get to the maximum clear understanding of the risks and how to avoid them.

Narrow passages and fairways in rivers and canals with a navigable depth or width comparatively small in relation to the draught or breadth of transiting ships are called restricted waters. The maneuverability of ships navigating through such restricted will be effected by peculiar hydrodynamic effects that are different from those when ships navigate in broad and deep waters.

Please note that we also have three other videos that belong to the same series of handling ships in restricted waters and address the anchoring, in-harbor ship handling and bank effects & interactions between two ships. The explanations are simple and clear making the video a good visual supplement to the theoretical training. Obviously, going through the content of all four videos will provide the best training effect for the mariners and is most recommended.

All mariners are well aware of the fact that when the vessel is sailing in following and quartering seas, the vessel's motions will be augmented and this in turn will increase the possibility of the vessel getting capsized. that is why it is critically important for the safety of the vessel that the navigators possess more detailed knowledge about these risks.

The ship handling techniques that we are studying here are also available in the relevant IMO providing guidance to the Masters for avoiding potentially dangerous situations in such conditions. The content of this training video is highly recommended to the professional mariners willing to refresh or improve their skills and of course to the future ship navigators who can use it as a supplementary training source.

Proper understanding of all dangers that may be encountered in the quartering and following seas is essential to understand since it will allow to take all necessary actions and avoid the associated risks.

The deck of a tug boat is definitely not the easiest and safest place to work. There are strong winds and waves, harsh weather conditions and hard-to-use heavy equipment combined to make it even more difficult and sometimes even dangerous place. But the work that is done by the people working on deck of the tug is really invaluable.

In today's shipping market, the size of vessels is increasing much faster than the ports can actually accommodate. Harbor operations are becoming increasingly complex. Time pressures and increasing traffic are making ever greater demands on tugs. To meet the challenge, tug crews depend on the professionalism of the vessel's crews. Good teamwork between everyone involved in the towing operations is absolutely essential for the safe and efficient completion of the process...

This training film supplements the training booklet on working on tugs. We highly recommend all workers of the offshore industry engaged in the towing operations on either side, to have better understanding of the operations as well as of the risks and dangers that shall be expected and get duly prepared to complete all of the operations in the safest and most efficient manner.
