Marine Pilots land in Gladstone for workshop

3 May 2017

Marine Pilots from around Australia and Asia are in Gladstone this week for the biannual Australasian Marine Pilots Institute (AMPI) workshops.

The 2 day workshop in Gladstone will focus on fatigue management, reviewing escort towage, continuous professional development and Marine Pilots transfers.

Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC), CEO, Peter O’Sullivan said GPC was proud to support the workshop that contributed to such a vital port operation.

“Without Marine Pilots vessels cannot berth, their role in our ports operation is vital,” he said.

“To have pilots from across Australia here in Gladstone is a real honour and a great opportunity to showcase the Gladstone Marine Pilot Services and the Port of Gladstone, Port of Bundaberg and Port Alma’s operations.”

AMPI is a not-for-profit, professional organisation, which continually seeks to further the Marine Pilot profession, maintain the integrity of the professional interests of Marine Pilots and also the public interest.

The second workshop for the year will be held in Fremantle.​
