    Finnpilot Pilotage Ltd.’s result for 2016

    Finnpilot Pilotage Ltd. announces its result for 2016.

    In 2016, pilotage prevented 29 potentially serious accidents. The company’s turnover, result and service level remained around the same as the corresponding figures for recent years. Customer satisfaction was at an exemplary level.

    During 2016, pilots observed 1,452 anomalies (safety deviations), concerning, for example, the competence of personnel, vessel manageability, the functioning of the bow thrusters, and other traffic. A total of 29 of these anomalies were assessed as being serious risk situations.

    The pilot is often the only Finnish navigation professional who boards a vessel visiting our waters and harbours. Our customers and the Finnish Transport Safety Agency Trafi utilise the pilots’ anomaly observations to carry out their safety assessments.

    The observations made last year indicate that the impact of pilotage on the safety and efficiency of maritime traffic brought a savings of about 52 million euro to customers and society at large.

    In 2016, customer satisfaction was rated (on a scale from 1-7) at 6.8 by shipmasters and 6 by other interest groups. With an objective of 99%, altogether 99.8% (2015: 99.9%) of all pilotage requests were fulfilled within the limits of the waiting times specified by service level objectives.

    During 2016, Finnpilot handled a total of 23,461 pilot assignments covering 439,519 piloted nautical miles. The number of assignments decreased by 2.2% from the corresponding figure in 2015. The piloted nautical mileage decreased by 4.4%. The improved capacity utilisation of the vessels, increasing vessel size, industrial logistics and the increase of PEC pilotage all decreased the demand for pilotage. The share of piloted traffic, for all vessels visiting in Finland’s coastal harbours, was 31.9% (32.9%).

    The turnover for 2016 was 36.5 million euro (2015: 36.8 million euro). The operating profit was 1.5 million euro (2015: 1.7 million euro) and the net profit of the financial year was 0.9 million euro (2015: 0.8 million euro).

    Finnpilot’s tax footprint was a total of 13.1 million euro in 2016. At the end of 2016, the company had a personnel of 327 employees (2015: 336) and the personnel’s average full-time equivalent was 317 (2015:320). The average age of the personnel is 50 years and more than 90% of the employees are male.
