Worldwide there are approximately 3,000 merchant ports and the work of the Harbour Master can vary widely from country to country and from port to port even within the same country.
Kongsberg Norcontrol provides integrated VTS systems, Local Port Service systems and Port security systems.
Successful ports establish Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) to ensure the safe and efficient movement of vessels through the port’s VTS area. Kongsberg Norcontrol VTS systems are robust, scalable and integrated so they can expand as demand increases. Compliant to IALA standards, recommendations and guidelines, our VTS systems provide optimal situational awareness ensuring the right decision is taken, at the right time and by the right person.

Our configurable Port management and information system ensures efficiency is combined with best practice processes.

IHMA Congress 2020 goes virtual
A message from Capt. Allan Gray, IHMA President.
We’ve been planning the 2020 Congress and looking forward to catching up with you all in Tasmania for almost three years now. Unfortunately, given the current situation in Australia, we won’t be exploring Hobart this October or clinking glasses at the Gala Dinner. We could focus on many things we will surely miss at this year’s event, however, we’re extremely fortunate and delighted to be able to bring a virtual edition of the 2020 Congress to you, wherever your home port may be.
Congress is the key forum for IHMA members and the global ports sector to collaborate, network, share information, and provide updates on the latest industry technology and solutions.
And there’s a lot to catch up on.
