South Africans harbour masters recognised internationally

IHMA Executive Committee and Council elections and awards

Two South Africans were elected to serve on the International Harbour Master Association’s (IHMA) Executive Committee and Council for the upcoming two-year term that ends in 2026 at the latest Ordinary General Meeting and Congress held in Tangier where another local harbour master walked away with an international award

Captain Naresh Sewnath, a senior harbour master with Transnet National Ports Authority was elected as one of the association’s Vice Presidents, while Captain Brynn Adamson from the Port of Durban has been elected to serve on the Council.

Captain Thulani Dubeko, harbour master at the Port of Ngqura received the Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement during the awards evening.

Captain Dubeko was nominated for his pivotal role in starting and operationalising the African Harbour Master Committee. He has been instrumental in organising Harbour Masters across the continent, encouraging them to share information, network, and assist each other. He has also been involved in significant projects at the Port of Ngqura, including the Ngqura Manganese Export Terminal and a new Liquid Bulk Terminal.

He was also recognised for his commitment to raising awareness and funds for children with autism and his efforts to promote the profession through career guidance exhibitions at underprivileged schools.

The IHMA is a professional membership association for those responsible for the safe, secure, efficient and environmentally sound conduct of marine operations in port waters. The Association brings together Harbour Masters and all those who hold a managerial position in aspects of the control of marine operations within a port.
