Description: Geomares Publishing is introducing a new training book Voyage Planning with ECDIS, written by Professor Ralph Becker-Heins. Voyage Planning with ECDIS aims to provide a profound hands-on advice on how to best compile a suitable voyage plan fully in line with the principles of IMO Resolution A.893(21).
Following a process-guided structure each chapter starts with a short re-compilation of the theoretical principals. Embattled with the re-enforced knowledge, the reader is challenged by a concrete example of a vessel sailing down the East coast of the USA. Following a step-by-step guidance, the book offers for each task a sample solution, including the usage of modern ECDIS equipment.
Every year a considerable number of vessels is detained because of an insufficient voyage or passage plan. Issues with voyage plans are counted among the top-5 claims. Just to have ‘some’ voyage plan turns out to be insufficient – the demand is to have a proper plan, compliant to the rules.
The author of the book, Ralph Becker-Heins, is full Professor of Navigation at the University of Applied Sciences in Bremen, Germany and General Manager of maritime training company Safebridge GmbH, in Hamburg, Germany.
