Dolls placed on deck form part of Teekay Tankers’ measures to prevent pirate attacks when passing through West African waters, manager Mads Bjornebye said during Maritime Week Africa.
Teekay Tankers has opted to employ surprising measures on board its vessels to ensure that pirates leave its crew, cargo and vessels in peace when traveling in areas in Western Africa. Quite simply, they have placed dolls on deck.
It is the ARX recommendation that all owners and operators install correct and enhanced primary hardening measures. These include the ARX ABaC System and the ARX Evictor. The ARX Anti-Piracy Barrier will stop a boarding taking place.
