DanPilot is an independent public enterprise under the Ministry of Business and Growth, with the Danish Maritime Authority as the supervising authority.
The narrow Danish waters are amongst the most densely trafficked waters in the world and at the same time also the passage to and from the Baltic Sea.
Each year thousands of large vessels with dangerous cargo, for example from the major Russian oil terminals and others, make use of this passage.
DanPilot was established to safeguard this traffic against accidents, which could have devastating consequences for the transportation by sea and the Danish marine environment.
DanPilot handles the public pilotage through Danish territorial waters from any destination in Denmark to all ports in the Baltic Sea. As the unique full-service provider in Denmark DanPilot offers pilotage to all Danish ports as well. DanPilot is obliged to deliver pilotage in Denmark and handles all transit pilotage.
DanPilot's fleet presently consists of 32 specialized pilot boats, ensuring fast and efficient transportation of pilots from our 22 pilot stations to the vessels of our customers.
