The information contained in the present officially released publication has been mainly intended to be used for clarification of the scope and purpose of the "Transit Corridor" as well as to outline all practical aspects for the merchant ships commonly participating in such Group Transits.
The IR Transit Corridor was subjected to the amendment in 2009 in order to duly reflect the significantly revised analysis of GOA maritime pirate activities together with the industry feedback. The revised transit corridor was also been repositioned and is now further from the established areas of fishing - this eventually resulted in serious decrease in the number of false alerts.
The booklet provides the results of the analysis of both attempted and successful attacks undertaken by the maritime pirates, clearly indicating that subject attacks are quite infrequent in the dark time and do not have any success in the subject region.
The publication will be useful for the bridge teams and owners of the vessels engaged in the operations within subject area. Taking the information provided in the booklet in due account will help provide the safety of navigation for the vessel and crew members.
