Strasselink Pte Ltd a pioneer in providing Malacca / Singapore straits pilots for more than 15 years (since 2005). They are the only company that has been chosen by the Indonesian authorities to work in partnership with them in providing pilotage services along the Malacca and Singapore Straits.
The benefits in using Marine Advisors:
– Increased safety – Our Marine Advisors relieve Master and crew of fatigue and navigational stress.
– Passage Planning / The Marine Advisor’s local knowledge and experience ensure vessels arrive at destinations on time and at minimum cost. All of our Marine Advisors carry their own electronic chart systems and independent GPS.
– Reporting procedures / Our Marine Advisors have detailed knowledge of all local and national IMO reporting requirements within the littoral states and have the ability to speak both English as their first language, and the native language of the locals.
– Reduction of insurance risk – Employing Marine Advisors reduces shipping risks and improves insurance claim records.
It is important to point out that since Indonesia maintains sovereignty over most of the coastal waters in the East-bound traffic separation scheme, they have warned Marine Advisory service providers from illegal boarding/disembarking of pilots in their territorial waters. The boarding and disembarkation of the foreign pilots servicing vessels along Malacca and Singapore Straits are carried out within Indonesian waters and as the Indonesian authorities are stepping up on their enforcement actions, there is a risk of vessels not conforming to the Indonesian government’s instructions, thus being harassed or detained.
In order to ensure smooth and completely legal operations, avoiding service disruptions, Strasselink is working with the relevant Indonesian authorities and with Indonesian pilots to ensure that their Marine Advisors are allowed to board vessels with the legal clearance from the Indonesian authorities.
