03-2016: Lateral windage area on ultra large container vessels

In order that the Haven pilot can adequately assess the towage resources required prior to embarking an ultra large container vessel i.e. a vessel exceeding 310 metres length overall, the calculated lateral windage area including any deck cargo is to be provided to Harwich Haven Authority at the earliest opportunity, preferably by email along with the pre arrival notification information data.

In exceptional circumstances the data can be transmitted by VHF on initial contact with Harwich Pilots.
