NORTH SEA - Belgium to Netherlands - Routeing measures. Area to be avoided.

Anchorage area.


To improve safety of navigation, reduce the risk of marine environment pollution and the planned development of wind farm sites in the area between traffic separation schemes of West Hinder, North Hinder and Maas West, new and amended IMO adopted routeing measures come into force at 0000 UTC 1 June 2017.


“Off the Netherlands and Belgian coasts between West Hinder, North Hinder and Maas West traffic separation schemes”, new and amended schemes are to be established as follows:


a. The north-eastern end of the TSS “North Hinder South” will be shortened and the precautionary area “North Hinder Junction” will be extended to join the TSS.


b. A new traffic separation scheme “Off North Hinder” will be established east of TSS “North Hinder South” adjoining the precautionary area “North Hinder Junction”.


c. The eastbound traffic lane of TSS “Maas West Outer” will be amended.


d. A new precautionary area “At Gootebank” will be established north of Deep Water route “In the Approaches to the River Scheldt”.


e. The TSS “At West Hinder” will be shortened and the precautionary area “At West Hinder” will be extended to join the TSS.


f. A new precautionary area “Windfarm Borssele” will be established north-east of the existing precautionary area “In the vicinity of Thornton and Bligh Banks”.


g. A new Area to be Avoided “Windfarm Borssele Pass” will be established through the precautionary area “Windfarm Borssele” for traffic under 45m in length.


3. To regulate traffic northbound and southbound east of the precautionary area “Windfarm Borssele”, new routeing  measures are to be established as follows:


a. A new precautionary area “Schouwenbank Junction” will be established. This precautionary area is connected via a twoway route “Schouwenbank NW” to precautionary area “North Hinder Junction”; via a two-way route “Schouwenbank NE” to precautionary area “Maas Junction”; via a two-way route “Westpit” to precautionary area “At Gootebank” and via a two-way route “Schouwenbank SE” to the channel “Oostgat”.


b. The anchorage area “Schouwenbank” will be adjusted according to the new two-way route “Schouwenbank NE”.


4. Details of all the above changes are shown on the accompanying diagram.


5. In addition to the above changes, radio reporting points, buoyage and anchorages will be amended and repositioned. The details of these changes will be published in the relevant NLHO and UKHO Publications.


6. Details of the routeing measures will be included in New Editions of Charts 110, 1406, 1630, 1872, 1873, 1874, and 2449 to be published in April 2017. These charts will be published with a cautionary note advising mariners that the existing charts, which will be given an “X” prefix, should be retained and used until 0000 UTC 1 June 2017. A New Edition of Chart 8012 will be published in June 2017. Charts 122, 1408, 2182A and 5500 will be updated by Notice to Mariners.


Note: Mariners are advised that this is a significant change to IMO routeing in the West Hinder, North Hinder and Maas West area. Mariners should familiarise themselves with these changes and ensure that they have all necessary chart and publication updates in advance of the implementation date.

With the exception of the ‘less water reported’ item which is already marked as a shoal, the revision of the wrecks are improvements – in the sense that the depths over the wrecks have increased or been altered to FOULS rather than a wreck.


No changes are likely to hinder leisure craft.  I will attempt to add images if suitable shortly.

These are changes to buoy positions in the Chenal Intermediaire  leading to the Port Quest of Dunkerque.


It is not possible to produce an image of the changes.  Generally the layout of the buoyage has not changed.  Some moves are very small but the general trend is to move the starboard hand buoys west a little and the port hand buoys north thus increasing the width of the buoyed channel for large shipping.


It is suggested that the PDF be printed to ensure that any relevant waypoints are updated.

As this temporary notice will endure for the life of the construction of these wind farms it is included amidst the Permanent Notices.  This is a revision of the notice earlier this year to include some new Wave Rider and Yellow Special Marks which are now included in the CTTE images.


I have included below, two CTTE images of the Belgian Wind Farms.  The first is an overview showing the position of the Wind Farms in relation to the main channels and the approach to the Westerschelde; the second shows more detail of the buoy and their light characteristics.


Besides the standard exclusion zones for construction, note that the Belgians continue to operate exclusion zones for their Wind Farms once they are commissioned.  Note also the Elia buoys.  Elia are proposing a national offshore grid for the Belgian Wind Farm and are conducting research in preparation of their plans for two offshore ‘islands’ on which the grid would be houses; hence two waveridere buoys each protected by two Special Marks.

Week 17


1840(P)/13 NETHERLANDS - Texel to Europoort Westwards - Routeing measures. Traffic separation schemes.

Traffic flow direction. Precautionary areas. Recommended routes. Deep water routes. Area to be avoided.


Source: IMO & NLHO


1. To improve the safety of navigation in the area off the coast of the Netherlands between Texel and North Hinder, the

International Maritime Organization has approved extensive new and amended routeing measures to be implemented at

0000 UTC 1 August 2013.


2. TSS Off Texel” (see diagram 1)

In the area west of Texel, the International Maritime Organization has approved amendments to the existing traffic

separation scheme, “TSS Off Texel”, and a new direction of traffic flow southbound, as follows:

The north-eastbound traffic lane of the “TSS Off Texel” will be reorientated and extended south-westward.

The south-westbound traffic lane of the “TSS Off Texel” will be extended south-westward to join the new recommended

direction of traffic flow southbound “Off Breeveertien” leading through the new precautionary area “Rijnveld”.

A new southbound traffic lane at the end of the existing south-westbound lane of the “TSS Off Texel”. will be established

for vessels bound for the new TSSs “Maas North” and “IJmuiden North”.


3. West of Rijnveld” (see diagram 2)

In the area “West of Rijnveld”, the International Maritime Organization has approved the establishment of a new

precautionary area, a new direction of traffic flow southbound and a new area to be avoided, as follows:


A new precautionary area “Rijnveld” will be established in order to regulate traffic coming from the north-eastbound lane

of the amended “TSS North Hinder North”, the north-west and south-eastbound lanes in and out of the amended “TSS Maas Northwest” and the north and southbound traffic to and from the new precautionary area “Maas Junction”.  A new recommended direction of traffic flow southbound “Off Breeveertien” will be established joining the new

precautionary area “Rijnveld” and the junction of the amended south-westbound traffic lane “TSS Off Texel”.

A new area to be avoided “at De Ruyter” will be established around the De Ruyter offshore platform.


4. In the Approaches to Ijmuiden” (see diagram 3)

In the approach to IJmuiden, the International Maritime Organization has approved the establishment of three new traffic separation schemes and new routeing measures “In the Approaches to Ijmuiden” and amendments to the Deep-water route and Deep-water approach area leading to IJmuiden. Within the scheme, the following changes will be implemented:


Three new TSSs; “TSS IJmuiden West Outer”, “TSS IJmuiden West Inner” and “TSS IJmuiden North” will be established.  These schemes will regulate traffic in and out of IJmuiden so that inbound vessels, not confined by their draught, keep south of the route as far inshore as possible whilst the outbound vessels, not confined by their draught, stay north of it.


A precautionary area “IJmuiden Crossing” will be established at the seaward end of the new “TSS IJmuiden West Outer”

to enable vessels to cross the DW route and the DW approach area.


A precautionary area “IJmuiden Junction” will be established at the junction of the “TSS IJmuiden West Inner” and “TSS

IJmuiden West Outer” and also “TSS IJmuiden North” leading to the amended “TSS Off Texel”. This will enable inbound vessels from the north to join eastbound vessels in the approach to Ijmuiden.


A new area to be avoided “by IJmuiden Northern Approaches. will be established at the former explosives dumping ground

off Ijmuiden.


The deep-water approach area will be amended in order to provide more manoeuvring space for deep draught vessels

involved in pilot embarkation or disembarkation.  An emergency turning area will be established at the inner fairway buoy, five miles off the harbour entrance, for deep

draught inbound vessels.


5. Hook of Holland and at North Hinder” (see diagram 4)

In the approaches to Europoort, the International Maritime Organization has approved amendments to the existing traffic

separation schemes and routeing measures “In the Approaches to Hook of Holland and at North Hinder”. Within the scheme, the following changes will be implemented:


The “TSS Maas North” will move about 4.5 miles westwards to be in alignment with a new precautionary area “IJmuiden

Crossing”.


A new area to be avoided “at Maas North” will be established within the new separation zone at “TSS Maas North” at the

former explosives dumping ground off Hoek van Holland.

The “TSS Maas Northwest” will be moved about 4 miles westwards as a consequence of the amended “TSS Maas North”.


The “TSS Maas West Inner” and “TSS Maas West Outer” will be shortened to fit between the amended precautionary areas “Maas Centre Precautionary Area” and “North Hinder Junction Precautionary Area”.


The “TSS North Hinder North” will be realigned to take traffic further to the East of the Horizon platform.  To accommodate the amendments to the above traffic separation schemes, the precautionary areas “Maas Centre”, “Maas Junction” and “North Hinder Junction” will be amended.


The deep-water approach area to the deep-water channel will be extended for the use of deep draught in-bound vessels from

the south-west.


The inshore end of the deep-water channel at the entrance to Europoort will be extended to the breakwater.  Two new emergency turning areas within the deep-water channel will be established for the use of in-bound vessels.


The areas to be avoided “At North Hinder Junction Point” and “At Maas Centre” will be discontinued.


6. Details of all the above changes are shown on the accompanying Diagrams 1 to 4, including an overview of all the changes on Diagram 5.


7. In addition to the above changes, Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) rules will be revised and radio reporting points, pilot stations, radar ranges, buoyage and anchorages will be amended and repositioned. Details of these changes will be published in the relevant Admiralty Publications.


8. Details of the new routeing measures will be included in New Editions of Charts 110, 122, 125, 126, 1406, 1408, 1504,

1630, 1631, and 2182A to be published in May and June 2013. These charts will be published with a cautionary note

advising mariners that the existing charts, which will be given an .X. prefix, should be retained and used until 0000 UTC 1

August 2013. Charts 1546 and 5500 will be updated by Notice to Mariners.

Imray charts:  C30


UKHO Note: Mariners are advised that this is a significant change to IMO routeing and associated measures in the southern North Sea and in the approaches to IJmuiden and Europoort. Mariners should familiarise themselves with these changes and ensure that they have all the necessary chart and publication updates in advance of the implementation date.

Notice 120 - NETHERLANDS - Approaches to Westerschelde - Bol van Knokke South-eastwards - Buoy.


Source: UKHO


Chart 1874 WGS84 DATUM


Replace   VQ(9)10s Fort Maisonneuve with VQ(9)10s Fort Maisonneuve at 51° 24´·21N., 3° 21´·50E.



Affects:


UKHO Charts: 1874

Imray Charts: C30


Replacement of the Fort Maisonneuve south cardinal with a similarly named west cardinal with identical light characteristics.  This buoy is situated in the Westerschedte approaches pretty much due north of the Belgium/Holland border.


Since the light characteristics remain as for a west cardinal mark (which though ought) and the buoy is already correctly shown on Imray’s C30 chart, we may assume this is a graphic error on chart 1874.
