We have been working with web site designers ‘BlueBox Creative’ to create this new website, which will have much more input both from the Secretary and Members and will be updated on a more frequent basis.
There will be both NWA and Members’ News sections as well as tabs for site visitors to find out more about the Association and Members’ activities. There will be an expanded, more accessible ‘Members Area’ where we can upload pertinent information on a variety of current topics including Training, Towage Endorsements, the Brown Code revision and the Maritime Labour Convention as it affects your vessels.
Forthcoming Master, Less 500GT Specialist Workboat Modules planned at both JPMA Hoylake and Stream Marine, Glasgow
In a case of last of the Old Year and first of the New - we can report that Perth Harbour and Topbond Plc joined the NWA towards the end of 2016 and Riverside Thames Ltd, the tug and barge subsidiary of Cory Environmental have now joined us this week.
The NWA has developed this towage good practice guide at the request of the MCA to underpin and expand on the principles for safe towage as outlined in the towage section of the revised Workboat Code which is due for publication shortly.
