On the 22nd of February the Global Port Forum awarded STM for PortCDM as the Port / Terminal Engineering / Technical innovation of the year 2018 and as the Port / Terminal Technology and R&D of the year 2018
The progress of STM and its alignment with IMO e-Navigation strategy was the focus when the STM project presented to the delegates of the IMO sub-committee NCSR February 21st. The warm reception indicates the ever-improving attitude to the STM ideas. And the message to the audience was clear: Get involved!
STM will work with the International Taskforce on Port Call Optimisation (ITPCO)
The Taskforce is a consortium of major shipping line and ports, working together on improving quality and availability of master and event data, which will deliver benefits to shipping lines, service providers, and terminals.
Matthais Pfeiffer and Adrian Ludwig (picture) are happy to participate in the STM simulator runs. “We want to support STM tests and enhance our own knowledge”.
The Winter Navigation Service came into use for the first time when “Baltic Bright” shared her Voyage Plan with the Finnish Transport Agency (FTA).
On August 29 2017, the “Star of Sawara” grounded in Danish Waters. Three months later this might not have happened, and had she had STM on-board, she would definately have been warned ahead!
