     3. Procedure for rendering pilotage services

 

     Pilotage services in the seaport of Magadan are rendered by the Magadan Branch round-the-clock pursuant to the requirements of the Compulsory Regulations in the Seaport of Magadan.

     Pilotage services in the seaport of Magadan are rendered by the Magadan Branch in accordance with the terms of a framework contract for rendering navigation services and ensuring a vessel’s stay in the seaport of Magadan. More information on the procedure for signing the contract and on the procedure for paying for pilotage services (pilotage dues) rendered by the Magadan Branch without concluding the contract can be found in the section “The Magadan Branch Harbor Dues and Tariffs”.

     The following vessels are exempt from compulsory pilotage in areas of compulsory pilotage areas in the seaport of Magadan, pursuant to the Compulsory Regulations in the Seaport of Magadan:

     - icebreakers;

     - vessels of less than 60 meters in length;

     - vessels making operations for servicing and supplying the ships staying in the water area of the seaport of Magadan and on the approaches toward it, and the facilities of the Magadan seaport infrastructure.

     The Magadan Branch provides pilotage of vessels in order of precedence of written applications submitted by owners of ships / marine agents in accordance with the traffic and mooring schedule in the seaport of Magadan. Applications for pilotage of vessels exempt from compulsory pilotage are submitted in accordance with the standard procedure.

     Application for pilotage services for vessels moving to the seaport of Magadan or leaving the port is submitted by a marine agent (an owner of a ship) no later than two hours before a vessel’s approach toward the site of meeting a pilot or a vessel’s exit from the seaport of Magadan by fax +7 (4132) 63-09-56 or a scan by e-mail mail@mgd.rosmorport.ru by sending in addition an original by mail or by delivering it to the office of the FSUE “Rosmorport” Magadan Branch at: the Magadan seaport, the administrative building, the 4th floor, Magadan, the Magadan region, Russia 685000. In order to specify the time and site of a pilot’s embarkation/disembarkation you can call the duty pilot of the Magadan Branch by telephone +7 (902) 508-82-07 (round-the-clock).

     An earlier given application is canceled no later than one hour before the expected time of starting pilotage of a vessel.

     A pilot, who arrives on a vessel, presents a pilot’s certificate to the captain. The certificate confirms the pilot’s right to pilotage of this vessel. The pilot also gives a pilot’s bill that records pilotage of the vessel by the pilot and possible remarks on his work. Pilots’ bills filed and signed by the vessel’s captain serve as a basis to calculate payment for pilotage. The vessel’s captain presents to the pilot an IMO standard form card with exact data on the ship and informs on the particularities of the vessel’s steering capabilities and its state.

     The Magadan Branch pilotage service does not assume responsibility for possible delays and vessel’s demurrage while waiting for a pilot in the following cases:

        - if an application for a pilot is given at a later date or if the ship has approached to the point of pilot’s embarkation with more than one hour’s delay of the expected time;

        - if a pilot’s (disembarkation) embarkation is impossible due to the weather or ice conditions and if amidst these circumstances pilotage by means of leading is impossible in the view of the vessel’s captain or the pilot.

     A vessel’s captain, who has called a pilot and given up the pilotage services upon his arrival aboard the vessel, must file and sign a pilot’s bill to recover 50% pilotage dues levied for the expected pilotage or an operation for which a pilot of the Branch has been called.

     With a delay of pilots’ works for more than one hour of the declared time for reasons, which do not result from force majeure circumstances, a pilot can be recalled from a vessel and the application can be annulled. A master of the vessel (or his stand-in) is liable for signing the pilot’s bill on a false call to pay pilotage dues according to the established procedure and giving a new application.

     Pilotage dues are levied for pilotage services rendered by the FSUE “Rosmorport” Magadan Branch. Information on pilotage dues rates and the procedure for levying them can be found in the section “The Magadan Branch Harbor Dues and Tariffs”.
