New Zealand to Review Coastal Navigation Safety

ADVERTISEMENT

Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) announced it is undertaking a review of coastal navigation safety to identify risks and assess current and potential safety measures according to Marinelink.com.


MNZ Director Keith Manch said the review, which begins July 2014, is part of a focus on developing an intelligence-led, risk-focused approach to maritime safety.


Manch said the review process would involve consultation with government agencies, local government and private sector interests, and it would consider such issues as the types of activity being carried out in the coastal environment, human factors and technology.


“The review is not a response to any particular incident, but obviously we will consider what can be learned from major incidents such as the grounding of the Rena,” Manch said.


The annual numbers of ships, voyages and port calls have continued to increase each year since 2009/10. In the 2010/11 year, 790 ships made 2,167 voyages and 5,386 port calls. In the 2012/13 year, 869 ships made 2,342 voyages and 5,622 port calls.
