MSC Zoe arrives from her last port of Rotterdam with a maximum draught of 12.5 metres. A harwich haven pilot boards Sunk Pilot Station which is situated around 12 miles out in the North Sea. Once onboard, the pilot radios Harwich VTS to say he was onboard 12.5 metres from Rotterdam with no defects for Felixstowe Berth 9. VTS repies that there was soon a ready berth as the Murcia Maersk was off the berth and about to come ahead. Planned port side to Berth 9, wind speeds and height of tide. The pilot replies that he requires to tugs for berthing both outside the harbour, first to make fast centre lead aft and the second push on the starboard quarter. Svitzer Deben which took a turn on the end of Berth 9 waiting for the Zoe to get closer before heading out of the harbour. Svitzer Shotley left the tug pontoon with an extra person for the Deben so they went alongside to drop the person off. Deben then casted off from the berth as the Harbour Ferry was approaching Felixstowe. Deben slipped astern of the ferry and powered out of the harbour soon followed by the Shotley.
