MACHC ECC Working Group 1 Report

Katie Ries, NOAA


Machc electronic chart committee
MACHC-Electronic Chart Committee

Goal: Demonstrate and facilitate the use of official electronic chart data for safe, efficient, and environmentally-sensitive maritime navigation.

Objectives:

  • Facilitate the production and use of ENCs and RNCs

  • Improve hydrographic capacity of coastal states

  • Identify sources for acquiring equipment, software, and training

  • Speed up ENC production for key ports & major shipping routes

  • Increase awareness of benefits of using EC data

Chair: Katie Ries, USA (NOAA)

Technical Coordinator: Rafael Ponce

Two Working Groups:

MesoAmerican Capacity Building Pilot Project

Improve capacity building of coastal state hydrographic offices in a defined area

Initial focus: The IADB-administered, GEF-funded Gulf of Honduras Project

ENC Production and Distribution

Improve ENC coverage of the entire region in the short to medium term, production of ENC data by national hydrographic offices

Environmental Protection and

Maritime Transport Pollution Control

Gulf of Honduras Project

  • Project Objective:

    • To reverse the degradation of the coastal and marine ecosystems within the Gulf of Honduras by enhancing the prevention and control from maritime transport-related pollution in the major ports and navigation lanes, improving navigational safetyto avoid groundings and spills, and reducing land-based sources of pollution draining into the Gulf.


Environmental Protection and

Maritime Transport Pollution Control

Gulf of Honduras Project

Component 1: Building regional capacity for maritime and land-based pollution control.

Component 2: Building the information

base for the Strategic Action Plan.

Component 3: Enhancing navigational

safety in shipping lanes.

Component 4: Improving environmental management and hazard reduction in network of five ports within the Gulf of Honduras


Environmental Protection and

Maritime Transport Pollution Control

Gulf of Honduras Project

Component 3: Enhancing navigational safety in shipping lanes

Focuses on improving the hydrographic and oceanographic cooperation in the region to both prevent and prepare for groundings and spills in the Gulf related to marine transportation operations

Report on ECC Working Group 2: ENC Production


Drivers to regional enc coverage
Drivers to Regional ENC Coverage

  • 30 % of world’s oil cargo transits the region.

  • Substantial proportion (0ver 50%) of the world’s cruise ships operate within the region.

  • Panama Canal expansion in 2014 expected to substantially increase its capacity from 6.6 million in 2010 to 8.4 million TEUs in 2015.

  • …IMO has passed mandatory carriage requirements for ECDIS for new tankers and cruise ships, …by 2012.

  • …IHO Member States should provide adequate coverage, availability, consistency and quality of ENCs by 2010.


Recommendations
Recommendations

  • Achieve adequate regional ENC coverage by Dec-2010

  • Utilize the medium scale INT Scheme as baseline for adequate medium scale ENC coverage (usage bands 2/3).

  • Identify production status/gaps

  • Consider producing medium scale ENCs before medium scale INT charts.


Recommendations cont
Recommendations (cont)

  • Establish a plan with POCs for completing coverage and developing a regional ENC scheme including formalized progress updates.

  • Coordinate closely with the ICC to harmonize efforts

  • Encourage neighboring MS establish bilateral agreement on production responsibilities

  • Synchronize reporting with MACHC Chair, IHB and MACHC INT CC
