OUR PILOTS KNOW EVERY FAIRWAY LIKE THE BACK OF THEIR HAND

North

Region Noord (North) is characterised by the extensive Wadden Sea area with its many sandbanks and gullies. The ever-shifting character of the fairways and the shallows therefore make the navigation and manoeuvring of ships particularly difficult. Loodswezen offers a major contribution to ensuring that shipping traffic in the ports of Harlingen, Delfzijl, Eemshaven, Den Helder and Lauwersoog runs smoothly and safely, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Our experienced pilots have been trained to such an extent that they can find the safe routes in this treacherous area in all weathers.
