The RIN SCG Visit to the National Maritime Operations Centre

The RIN SCG Visit to the National Maritime Operations Centre took place on 15th December 2017

The RIN SCG Visit to the National Maritime Operations Centre took place recently and was fully booked a month or so before the visit.

Some 20 members of the Institute and their guests received a warm welcome from Catherine Piggin of the NMOC, who was literally thrown in at the deep end, due to her boss being unable at the last minute to see us round and give our group a presentation on the history behind the formation of the NMOC and its' current role. The visit lasted two hours and included a look into the Operations Centre itself from the conference room.

Situated at the back of an industrial estate in a modern building, which was originally going to be a fire service control centre, the building seemed ideally suited to being a Maritime Operations Control Centre, with it's ready made conference room looking remarkably like the bridge of a ship overlooking the Operations Room. Although having the National Maritime Operations Centre located in the middle of an industrial estate, miles inland, still seems a bit odd!

A report on the visit will be given by John Hasselgren, in the next edition of Fairway.
