Videotel upgrades anti-piracy programme

Videotel reports that it has revised and updated its Piracy and Armed Robbery training programme.

Designed to assist shipping companies and their crews to safely transit pirate zones anywhere in the world, the programme places emphasis on BMP (Best Management Practices) as the core tool helping ships avoid, deter and delay pirate attacks.

Available in multimedia formats including Videotel on Demand (VOD), it features ships making preparations prior to transiting the Indian Ocean High Risk Area (HRA), interviews with senior shipping industry personnel and representatives from naval/military forces, as well as other organisations.

It also includes maps showing the concentration of piracy incidents and graphics illustrating how ships can make evasive manoeuvres.

Nigel Cleave, CEO of Videotel, underlines the industry’s need for support and guidance: “In the last few years alone the number of alternatives available in the arsenal of anti-piracy measures has increased, but all have their benefits and drawbacks and the legal implications of many of these options to the ship owner are considerable.”
