Safety Instructions

Masters of vessels must maintain the coal carrier mobility and maneuverability at all time whilst in port, so that the vessel can be moved at short notice. The pilot must be informed immediately if, for any reason, the above regulations are not carried out.

Dismantling of machinery affecting vessel's mobility or maneuverability is prohibited unless authorised by the pilot on duty.
