TOOLS TO ASSESS VESSEL TRAFFIC SYSTEMS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF VTS

Objective

The project will study:
- a variety of tools which can assist in the design of an efficient VTS;
- determine the suitability for new external functions as shore based pilotage, resource management and contingency planning;
- improve the operational benefits to be reaped by improving the procedures in VTSs;
- improving and harmonize existing training schemes for VTS operators;
- collect, improve and determine basic traffic and casualty information as the basis for marine safety and expediency decision making as well as towards the determination for the nuisances to the environment caused by vessels.

The main objective of the project is to provide tools to assess the effects and the benefits of marine safety measures (notably VTS type measures) against the costs.
