Change of Pilot-Service - Buksér og Berging is moving to Bremerhaven LOS 125, LOS 126, LOS 129

Change of Pilot-Service

11. Januar 2019 · Christian Eckardt (translation)

From February 1st the harbor pilots in Bremerhaven are no longer transported on the transfer boats "Jasmund", "Bergen" and "Öllermann" of the Lotsbetrieb GmbH Mecklenburg-Vorpommern to their missions.
The Europe-wide tender for the Lotsenversetzdienst in Bremerhaven has now won the joint venture of the German Offcon GmbH (Kappeln) and Buksér og Berging AS (Norway). The contract has a term of 60 months with an option for another 36 months. The order volume amounts to approximately 2,5 million euros and covers approximately 10.800 operational trips annually.
In the future, three 15-meter "Pilot 1620" displacement boats of the Finnish manufacturer Kewatec, which Buksér og Berging AS will provide, will be used on the Weser. They are currently being prepared in Kappeln (D) for their duties and then operate under the German flag. CE / bek
