Navigational Risk Assessment (Oban)

Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd

Navigation Risk Assessment

Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL) working in partnership with Argyll and Bute Council (A&BC) and the Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) commissioned a Harbour Management Plan for Oban Bay.

As part of this Plan, a requirement to evaluate navigational risk within Oban Bay and the Sound of Kerrera was identified. ABPmer was asked to organise and facilitate Marine Hazard Observation workshops with users to identify known and potential hazards relating to marine operations and vessel navigation.

To inform the Navigational Risk Assessment (NRA), we compiled available navigational accident and incident records, characterised vessel transit routes within the study area, and drew-up a list of hazard scenarios for assessment. The NRA summarised risk control options in use and identified a range of ‘future risk control options’ through consultation with harbour stakeholders.
