Association Des Commandants De Port De France

Association Des Commandants De Port De France (ACPF)

L’ACPF est une association qui regroupe les officiers de port et officiers de port adjoints qui occupent les fonctions de commandant de port dans les ports français.

Elle a pour objet de :

  • Poursuivre les mêmes buts que l’IHMA et d’associer ses adhérents à tous ses travaux
     
  • Développer et pérenniser les bonnes relations et la collaboration entre ses membres
     
  • Assurer la représentation de ses membres auprès des Organismes internationaux, européens ou nationaux, ainsi qu’auprès des administrations, collectivités et groupements professionnels.
     
  • Le Président de l’association est actuellement M. Yves JAOUEN, Commandant du Grand Port Maritime de Nantes-Saint-Nazaire.


Le Role Du Commandant De Port

Le commandant de port dirige la capitainerie du port, armée par des officiers de port et officiers de port adjoints, fonctionnaires d’Etat. Leurs missions peuvent se décomposer en :

  • Sécurité nautique et organisation du trafic maritime portuaire. Ils ordonnent les mouvements des navires dans le port et dans ses accès, ils assurent la police du plan d’eau.
     
  • Sécurité portuaire. Ils contrôlent les déclarations d’arrivée des navires, le respect des consignes de sécurité et notamment celles concernant le dépôt et la manutention des marchandises dangereuses.
     
  • Protection des ouvrages portuaires et de l’environnement. Ils veillent à la conservation du domaine public portuaire, des ouvrages, du balisage et à la prévention de la pollution.
     
  • Exploitation portuaire. Ils attribuent ou autorisent les placements des navires à quai, veillent à la bonne marche de l’exploitation portuaire en garantissant le respect des lois et règlements.
     
  • Sûreté portuaire. Ils s’assurent de la bonne application des mesures de sûreté dans le port, et peuvent occuper des fonctions d’agent de sûreté portuaire. Grâce à une solide expérience de marin, le commandant de port est un acteur essentiel dans les opérations portuaires, apportant son expertise dans la gestion quotidienne du port ainsi que lors des crises nautiques et dans la conduite des projets portuaires.

 

Le Ports de France

Les ports de commerce sont divisés en:

  • Grands Ports Maritimes, établissements publics de l’Etat: Marseille, Le Havre, Dunkerque, Nantes-Saint-Nazaire, Rouen, Bordeaux, La Rochelle et dans les départements d’outre mer : Guadeloupe, Martinique, la Réunion et Guyane.
     
  • Les autres ports relèvent des collectivités locales ou territoriales, soit des régions, des départements ou de syndicats mixtes.
     
  • Les Grands Ports Maritimes sont dotés d'une autonomie financière. Ce sont des établissements publics à directoire et conseil de surveillance. Les présidents de conseils de surveillance ou d'administration sont élus. Les présidents de directoires ou directeurs généraux sont nommés par l'Etat. Les conseils de surveillance des GPM ont 17 membres représentant l'Etat, les collectivités locales et territoriales, les milieux économiques, et les personnels de l'établissement public. De plus, les GPM sont dotés d'un conseil de développement à caractère consultatif qui associe des représentants de la place portuaire, des milieux sociaux et associatifs, et des collectivités locales de proximité. Ils exercent les fonctions d’autorité portuaire, la gestion des outillages étant transférée vers des opérateurs privés exploitant les terminaux portuaires.

Dans les ports décentralisés, le rôle d'autorité portuaire est assuré par la collectivité territoriale compétente. Les pouvoirs de police des capitaineries restent néanmoins de la responsabilité de l'Etat dans les plus importants d'entre eux. L'exploitation du port est en règle générale confiée aux Chambres de Commerce par le biais de contrats de concession. Ceux-ci concernent notamment l'exploitation des outillages et équipements du port.

The growth of ports’ operations is being matched by the increase in data available to managements, and the Port of Fremantle’s harbour master says such ‘‘big data’’ will help those managers use real-time, past and predictive information, as occurs in any modern business.

“Given the complex business models and large cost bases of ports and marine freight organisations, this industry particularly lends itself to non-traditional or big-data insights,” says Captain Allan Gray, general manager of operations at Fremantle Port.

In an abstract for next year’s International Harbour Masters Congress in Hobart, Gray says that “used effectively, these analytical tools have the potential to significantly improve fuel economy, supply chain logistics, transit time and voyage profitability”.

Gray was elected president of the IHMA in London last year.

All new ships for UK waters ordered from 2025 should be designed with zero-emission capable technologies. On 11 July this ambitious aim, as part of the Clean Maritime Plan appeared in plans set out by Maritime Minister Nusrat Ghani (illustrated) to cut pollution from the country’s maritime sector.

At this time the UK government is also looking at ways to incentivise the transition to zero-emission shipping and will consult on this next year (2020).

Furthermore, the plan also includes a £1 million competition to find innovative ways to reduce maritime emissions and is published alongside a call for evidence to reduce emissions on UK waterways and domestic vessels.

Government’s Clean Air Strategy

The Clean Maritime Plan is part of the Government’s Clean Air Strategy, which aims to cut down air pollution across all sectors to protect public health and the environment. It will also help deliver the United Kingdom’s commitment to be net zero on greenhouse gases by 2050.

In the words of Maritime Minister Nusrat Ghani at the launch of the Plan: ‘Our maritime sector is vital to the success of the UK’s economy, but it must do everything it can to reduce emissions, improve air quality and tackle climate change.

The Clean Maritime Plan sets an ambitious vision for the sector and opens up exciting opportunities for innovation. It will help make the UK a global hub for new green technologies in the maritime sector.’
