NLNG, NPA Partner on VTS Deployment

The Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas Limited and the Nigerian Ports Authority have agreed on a partnership geared towards the deployment of a vessel tracking service, VTS.

This was announced recently when the Managing Director of NPA, Muhammed Bello-Koko, hosted the Managing Director of the NLNG, Dr. Phillip Mshelbila, at the NPA headquarters in Lagos.

The VTS, which is to be deployed through the NLNG Ship Management Limited, a subsidiary of the NLNG, is expected to enhance the capacity of the NPA in the area of domain awareness and management.

Speaking on the development, the Managing Director of the NPA, Mohammed Bello, said, “We are greatly delighted by this development especially as it is coming at a time when we are ramping up efforts under the technical guidance of the International Maritime Organisation to deploy the Port Community System since the effective safety communication with vessel-to-shore and vessel-to-vessel that a VTS enables actually supports the successful deployment of PCS.”

The VTS is a control measure for vessels required to assure the safety of life at sea.
