in AIS Station Update, Community by

We are permanently expanding our Terrestrial AIS Network!
To keep you updated, here’s an overview of this Month new AIS stations:

Arrecife

Arrecife, Spain

Arrecife is a city and municipality in the Canary Islands situated in the centre-east of the island of Lanzarote, of which it has been the capital since 1852. The earliest records of Arrecife date from the fifteenth century when it was a small fishing settlement. The name, given then as Arrecifes, refers to the black volcanic reefs behind which boats could hide, protected from sudden pirate attacks.


Gig Harbour, United States

Gig Harbor is the name of both a bay on Puget Sound and a city on its shore in Pierce County.  Commercial fishing is of great cultural, if somewhat lesser economic, importance to Gig Harbor, and many commercial fishing boats make Gig Harbor their home port. Most, however, do not rely on Puget Sound to gather their catch. Gig Harbor’s fishing fleet still gathers the first weekend in June in the center of the bay for the annual Blessing of the Fleet ceremony.

Malacca, Malaysia

Malacca City is the capital city of the Malaysian state of Malacca. Malacca Port is located on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Daily ferries run from Malacca to the Indonesian cities, departing from Harbour Master’s Jetty. Regular boat services to Big Island depart from mainland Malacca in Umbai. Two existing container ports in Malacca are the Port of Kuala Sungai Linggi and Port of Tanjung Bruas.

Maputo, Mozambique

Maputo is the capital and largest city of Mozambique. It is known as the City of Acacias, in reference to acacia trees commonly found along its avenues, and the Pearl of the Indian Ocean. Today, it is a port city on the Indian Ocean, with its economy centered on the harbour. In 2010, the dredging works in the channel were finished and the Port of Maputo can now handle larger vessels with more cargo.

Nanaimo, Canada

Nanaimo is a city on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. It is known as “The Harbour City.”  The Nanaimo Port Authority operates the inner Harbour Basin marina providing mooring for smaller vessels and the W. E.

Port Louis, Mauritius

Port Louis is the capital city of Mauritius, located in the Port Louis District. Port Louis is the country’s economic, cultural, political centre and most populous city. It is home to the nation’s main harbor, and is the only official port of entry and exit for sea vessels in Mauritius. Ships must cleared in the port before visiting any other anchorage in the island nation. Vessels too large to dock at the quays can anchor at the Outer Anchorage, which is still within the official boundaries of the port.

Chukai, Malaysia

Chukai, also known by the name of Kemaman Town is the administrative seat of Kemaman District, in the state of Terengganu, Malaysia. The name “Chukai” means ‘taxes’ in Malay.
The town is so named due to its position near the estuary of the Kemaman River, whereby taxes and levies were imposed on riverine traffic, especially during the British colonial period.
