DIsmantling of Vessels with Enhanced Safety and Technology

Objective

Policy-makers are in dire need of up-to-date objective scientific data to support their decision making as applied to ship dismantling. The objective of the Project is to “define a integrated risk and economic framework” applicable to the optimisation of ship dismantling activities and infrastructure, from a social, economic and environmental point of view. The framework will apply across the life cycle of a ship and it will be developed using risk-based and economic modelling/value-based analysis. Particular emphasis will be on the dismantling value and competence chain. Implementation steps: 1.selection of the risk and economic analysis process that best fits the needs and constraints of the dismantling process 2. validation of the applicability of selected methods by case studies, with emphasis on dynamic combination of technical, environmental and human factors 3.organisation of the research output into a database to support risk management and decision making. The subjects of concern that have been identified for the call will be addressed as follows: 1.a process to answer safety concerns linked to ‘ecological processes for clean and safe dismantling & clean and safe disposal’ 2.an analysis of ships, infrastructure, personnel, with focus on the dynamic interfaces between them, to support research on ‘vessels and infrastructure end of life analysis addressing industrial, ecological and economic criteria’ 3.economic analysis of the main risk drivers of identified ship/infrastructure/process combinations to answer questions on the cost effectiveness of ship recycling. The Project team involves partners from India. It will also play an active part in technology transfer and the betterment of human and environmental conditions in Asian countries through a dissemination and training program. The main deliverables: 1.validated risk and economic models 2.policy recommendations on the optimum dismantling facility and process 3.knowledge-exchange platform.
