(constrained by draught in Torres Strait) • Risk-based planning • Acceptable level of risk? • Large remote area, relatively low density traffic, complex navigation, sensitive environment.
Risk Assessment AMSA engaged DNV to update and extend their 2001 Assessment of Ship Safety Controls in the Torres Strait and GBR Summary of risk reduction measures to be considered included: • Extending the coastal pilotage areas • Extending the coastal VTS • Additional emergency towing capability
Risk Assessment • Traffic Organisation Service (a service that could potentially be provided by REEFVTS) in specific passages • 100% carriage and effective use of ECDIS • 100% fleet penetration of bunker tanks in protective locations (as a measure to reduce likelihood of oil spill only).
