To prevent accidents which may cause damages to terminal quay, midstream dolphins and buoys and gantry cranes during berthing and mooring/unmooring in Bangkok port, all cargo vessels and other ships must apply for PAT tug boat service for berthing, midstream mooring and unmooring in the Bangkok port as follows:

Request for PAT tug boat service must be made for berthing at: East Quay Berths (No. 20A – 20G)

- Vessels without bow thruster or stern thruster must use at least two tug boats of 1200 HP up;
- Vessels with bow thruster or stern thruster must use at least one tug boat of 1200 HP up;
- Vessels with LOA exceeding 250 ft. must use at least one tug boat of 1200 HP up.

West Quay Berths (No. 22A - 22J)

- Vessels with LOA 250 - 450 ft. must use at least one 1200 HP tug boat;
- Vessels with LOA exceeding 450 ft. must use at least two 1200 HP tug boats;
- Vessels with bow thruster or stern thruster must use at least one tug boat of 1200 HP up.

For midstream dolphin mooring, at least two tug boats of 1200 HP up must be used.

- For midstream buoy mooring, at least one tug boat of 1200 HP up must be used.

For other vessels with LOA not exceeding 250 ft., if the master judges that the vessel could berth at the terminal quay or moor at midstream safely he could do so without requesting tug boat service. However, the said berthing and mooring/unmooring must not obstruct other vessels and owner of the vessel must be liable for any damages incurred.

In the event of abnormal weather condition or the calling vessel in any abnormal condition, the pilot officer is authorized to request more powerful or additional tug boat as deemed appropriate.
