Dart Harbour Authority to manage port risk using MarNIS Port Assessment Toolkit


ABPmer, a recognised authority on port marine safety, has been asked to provide Dart Harbour and Navigation Authority with a MarNIS ‘Port Assessment Toolkit’ for managing marine risk.

Dart Harbour and Navigation Authority, a Trust Port, is located on the River Dart in South Devon, England. The River Dart is navigable from Dartmouth to the weir at Totnes.

Monty Smedley, maritime specialist at ABPmer said; “We are delighted to provide Dart Harbour and Navigation Authority with a Port Assessment Toolkit (MarNIS).

“A software solution such as MarNIS offers a pro-active approach to risk management, helping port authorities, Harbour Master or Port Safety Manager meet and exceed industry standards on risk management”

Nick Clarance, Deputy Harbour Master said “Dart Harbour & Navigation Authority has statutory responsibility for the safe management and conservancy of the River Dart. As part of our commitment to continual improvement, I am very pleased to be implementing a customised MarNIS toolkit to bring our risk assessment, monitoring and reporting together into a single system.”

MarNIS is currently used by more than 40 ports helping them to develop a set of risk assessments in-line with Formal Safety Assessment (FSA) processes advocated by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and UK Harbour Authorities comply with the UK Port Marine Safety Code.
