The General Directorate of Natural Resources, Security and Maritime Services (DGRM) this week completed the final work to complete a study on the extension of the Vessel Traffic System and Service (VTS) to the entire Portuguese sea, namely to the sub-regions of Madeira and the Azores.

The final step was a visit to Ilhas Selvagens to explore the best location and conditions for installing sensors in Portugal’s southernmost developing area. The trip was carried out with significant cooperation between the Air Force and the General Directorate of Maritime Authorities, who participated in visits to IFCN – Institute of Forests and Nature Conservation and APRAM of the Autonomous Region of Madeira.

This study aims to prepare the next phase of implementation, so that Portugal, as a coastal state, makes available throughout the Portuguese sea the obligation to control and monitor maritime traffic, as well as the function of providing information for navigation through the adoption of VTS services. throughout the territory.

With regard to maritime safety, the implementation of the VTS service and system on a national scale will create safety mechanisms, namely traffic separation schemes and zones to be avoided in the autonomous regions, fully integrated and harmonized with those in the autonomous regions. continent.
