Ship-to-Ship Pilotage


Moving thousands of tonnes of cargo from one ship to another while at sea is no small feat. In addition to a capable and efficient crew onboard both vessels, such operation requires extensive experience and local knowledge, as well as the ability to coordinate with assisting tugs, Mooring Masters and authorities – all of which play a crucial role in the smooth, efficient and safe operation.

This is the reason why DanPilot is onboard every time an STS operation is conducted.

All our STS Pilots are experts in their field of work, specifically educated and certified and are subject to a strict training regime to ensure that all STS operations in Danish waters are conducted in a safe and professional manner.

STS operations are conducted at a few select locations only, selected by the Danish Maritime Authority.

At any time, designated STS Pilots are on duty at DanPilot to ensure that we are always present and able to advice the Master of the vessel and the involved parties regarding anchorage and weather conditions to ensure a safe and efficient operation.
