Safe maritime operations under extreme conditions: the Arctic case


SEDNA Arctic Bridge Operating Procedures Manual

D3.7 will address the refinement of existing bridge and navigation team operating procedures and the development of new procedures for the safe and effective operation of the Arctic Bridge.

Future Research Roadmap

D5.4 will provide a roadmap for the future development of the SEDNA safety solutions and its current and future associated technologies.

Safe Shipping Intelligence – knowledge base, accident causation models, accident scenarios

D4.2 will identify and define future safety barriers necessary for the safe navigation of ships in the Arctic.

Formal inputs to international regulatory regimes reports

D5.5 will provide information (INF) papers to IMO and reports to relevant organisations/forums with consultative status at the IMO summarising the main findings of the projects and possible recommendations for safety actions.

Gender Action Plan

D7.5 will include a detailed gender-neutral work plan of the individuals involved in SEDNA and measures to identify and monitor the gender balance in it.

Regulatory Framework

D1.1 will provide a project baseline and regulatory framework for the SEDNA safety solutions.

Optimised forecast products

D3.1 will deliver new regional weather and sea ice probability forecast products, including specifications (M5), customization (M12), format (M18) and final products (M24).

Safer Shipping Innovation Vision and Goals

D1.3 will provide fully validated project mission, innovation targets, evaluation criteria and metrics.

SEDNA sustainability and impact evaluation

Arctic Shipping Future Trends report

D1.2 will identify key ‘What if?’ future scenarios and produce Horizon Scanning reports.

Safety Assessment of LFPF

D4.3 will consider the implications for the environment and for vessels and their crews of projected accidents were the vessels involved (a) using low flash point fuels (LFPF) and (b) using conventional fossil fuels

Validated forecast products and ice monitoring system

D3.3 will deliver validated regional weather and sea ice probability forecast products and ice monitoring system.

Safe Arctic Bridge
