The success of Maltese ports is dependent on the efficiency of services offered at the same ports. We recognise that the service offered by the cooperative is one of the most important among the chain of services offered by our ports.
One should mention that the cooperative holds the largest amount of Marine Masters under its umbrella in Malta. This puts it at the same level of the best harbours in the world.
In January 2011 the Malta Maritime Pilots Co-operative launched one of the most modern pilot boats on the market. This pilot boat, built in Ireland, was added to the fleet of five other boats that were being used to provide the Maltese pilotage service.
To keep abreast with the technological advancement in the sector, the cooperative invests heavily in training. This led to the cooperative opening a maritime training centre that includes one of the most advanced full mission simulator in Europe. This simulator can be used for training, as well as to make a risk assessment when large vessels are making use of Maltese ports
