Maritime Communication

According to the SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) convention, every member of the Global Maritime Organization should provide coastal equipment in order to offer radio communication services with ships. Considering the importance of this action and according to the paragraph 6 of the article 3 of the organization's by-law regarding the management of telecommunication networks in the coast and sea, in order to contact the ships and subordinate ports, the Ports and Maritime Organization considered it as a responsibility of the organization and has been trying to establish coastal maritime communication stations with the aim of improving the maritime safety and performing its sovereignty duties. Therefore, maritime telecommunication of Anzali Port has also been enabled from the very beginning of the port's establishment and has been providing radio and telephone radio services for the ships. It has also been managing the operations regarding the arrivals, departures and berthing of the ships. In 1995, according to the Standards of Global Maritime Organization, GMDSS Radio equipment was installed in Anzali Port on the frequency band of MF/HF in order to receive and send DSC (Digital Selective Calling) emergency messages from the ships.

Today, the utilizing of vessels traffic service has had an increasing growth in high traffic maritime zones and has been turned into a necessity. Technology advancements and the necessity for receiving instant information in order to have coordinated vessel movements and matters such as marine security and safety, saving people's lives in marine incidents and protecting the environment make it necessary to use the so called service.

Utilizing of the new software and hardware systems in order to apply safe and accurate supervising and guidance to vessel units and considering the International Maritime Laws is called the Maritime Traffic Service

  • Daily broadcasting of weather and sea status at 09:00 a.m. and 05:00 p.m. according to the local time via VHF on the channel 67, for the entire vessels trafficking in the zone.          
  • Broadcasting weather forecasts via SMS to the cell-phones of the commanders of fishing vessels and the agents of maritime organizations.
  • Providing radio and telephone radio services on MF/HF and VHF bands for the ships.
  • Receiving marine safety messages and emergency messages on MF/HF and VHF bands from the ships in distress and performing the related actions (in case of needing any help and dispatching search and rescue units to the zone etc).
  • Receiving e-mails announcing the arrivals of ships and also sending those e-mails to the authorities and related sectors for subsequent actions.
  • Constant collaborating with the administration of channel safety as the center of marine search and rescue regarding the operations related to the marine search and rescue.

 

 

Services provided by Maritime Traffic Control Centre:

  • Planning, controlling and supervising on the traffics of the vessels.
  • Providing maritime safety and marine security of the covered zone.
  • Collaborating in the rescue operation of the distressed vessels in the zone.
  • Accurate supervising on the execution of local and international laws.
  • Utilizing radars in adverse weather in order to provide secure conduct for the ships.

Supervising and controlling the traffic of trading ships entering the port is one of the most important tasks of Maritime Traffic Service that has direct relationship with the increasing of efficiency, performance, and the income of the port. According to the instruction, when a ship enters the VTS covered zone, it moves towards the anchorage announced by the Maritime Traffic Control Centre. Having berthed in the specified point, it announces the end of berthing operation. Finally, it is registered in the radar guard by the Traffic Control officers.

Navigation Marks

Phone Number: 013-44992273

In order to help the movement of huge and small vessels in channels, ponds and coastal zones, Ports and Maritime Administration of Guilan Province according to the international laws has attempted to utilize lighthouses suitable to the area prevent incidents and also to guide the vessels towards a safe zone.

All laws related to lighthouses are derived from the enacted laws of International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) which are also enacted by IMO; all the countries that have joined these conventions are obliged to follow these laws. Therefore, the entire maritime zones throughout the world are divided into A and B regions and every country would register and announce its own AIDS to Navigation marks according to one of the foresaid regions in order to guide the vessels. The lateral signs in the Regions A and B are different but the other marks are common for in both regions.

AIDS to Navigation marks are divided into 6 groups:

  1. LATERAL MARKS
  2. CARDINAL MARKS
  3. ISOLATED DANGER MARKS
  4. SAFE WATER MARKS
  5. SPECIAL MARKS
  6. EMERGENCY WRECK MARKING

Lateral Marks: Lateral marks are used to define the edge of a navigable channel, most commonly when entering/leaving ports. In the channels that are considered as A region, like those of Iran, the vessel would see red lateral marks on its left side and the green lateral marks on its right side. Obviously, the pattern will be reversed while leaving the port.

Cardinal Marks: A cardinal mark indicates where the safest water may be found and is divided into four north-south-east and west marks; each mark specifies a safe direction for marine activities. For instance, if a vessel sees a west cardinal in its direction, it should select its direction so that it passes west of the west cardinal.

Isolated Danger Marks: these marks are used when a point in the sea is considered unsafe; for example, a wrecked vessel or a shallow point. In these cases the vessel shall avoid moving towards the specified point and continue to pass the way with keeping a safe distance from the point.

Safe Water Marks: this mark is usually seen in anchorages near the sea. It illustrates the safe zone in that region and vessels can pass all around its four directions.

Special Marks: this mark is used when a special region of the sea is confined and vessels are not allowed to perform maritime activities in that region. For instance, a region that is confined for military exercises will be announced to the entire vessels in the region so that they avoid maritime activities in that region.

EMERGENCY WRECK MARKING: can be used to mark a newly discovered vessel not yet shown in nautical documents. In other words, this mark is used to indicate the place of a new wreck until the exact place of the wreck and the water depth above the danger point are not recognized and the mark type is not determined.

Special structures are used to indicate AIDS to navigation marks in the points in question; some of the structures are as follow:

  • Some of these marks are in the form of vessels and are called BUOY; they are fixed in the sea by means of chains or weights.
  • Some of these marks are in the form of pillars fixed in shallow waters or near the shore and are called BEACON.
  • Another kind of these kinds of structures exists in seashores and like Beacons are fixed on the ground by means of pillars; they are much bigger than Beacons in size and are higher in height. These structures are seen in various forms like Towers and Lighthouses that are called Pharias.
  • In points where due to the distance from the shore and the depth of the sea, using buoy is not appropriate and more focal height is required, bigger vessels like light boats or light vessels are used for aids to navigation marks. Light vessels are also fixed by means of chains and anchors just like buoys.

These structures convey messages to mariners by means of characteristics such as color and day light throughout the day, color light and the number of times it flashes during a time period in nights.
