    Effective maritime rescue bases on both surface units and aviation. The different types of units are selectively chosen according to their performances. The main operational limitations of a particular unit are weather conditions and vehicle characteristics. In addition to standard units, for purposes of search and rescue, a WIG craft is also applicable. The craft uses so called Ground Effect, therefore is characterized by relatively high speed and low fuel consumption. The article attempts to determine the statistical operational effectiveness of different search and rescue units. The analysis is based on data on wind force and direction, in the period from May to October, in the west coastal zone of Poland. The results of the study allow to compare operational effectiveness of various rescue units. The findings can be used to support planning of search and rescue forces’ dislocation and their efficient use

    During of the political and economical transformation in Poland in the 1990s the optimal fishing vessel was developed for fishing in the Baltic Sea. The vessel was tested with respect to its exploitation and fishing capabilities. The ship is intended for research purposes but simultaneously can be utilized as a typical fishing vessel on the Baltic Sea. Construction and exploitation parameters were presented in this text.

    There were a number of circumstances which became the basis for the MarTech liquefied natural gas (LNG) project: the forthcoming regulations reducing permitted sulphur content of a ship’s fuel, and aspirations of Poland and Lithuania to diversify sources of natural gas import by building LNG import terminals. The project was launched in 2012 and lasted more than three years until April 2015. It concerned the uses of LNG in the South Baltic Sea region and was realized by eight partners from five countries surrounding this area. The main aims were promotion of LNG as a fuel and dissemination of knowledge and experiences related to LNG. They were achieved by organizing training courses, seminars and meetings between stakeholders, research institutions and policy makers. This paper is an informal report of activities within the MarTech LNG project.

    The Baltic Sea is crisscrossed by several dense vessel traffic routes. Growing shipping traffic increases the likelihood of collisions. A quantitative analysis of the impact of fishing vessel traffic streams on streams of merchant vessel traffic aims to identify areas of intense traffic of this type and to assess the potential risks. The identification of intersections of fishing vessel routes and merchant shipping traffic allows us to identify spots of potential collisions. The analysis made use of the IALA IWRAP Mk2 program and AIS data collected from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014.
