Legislative Assessment for Safety Hazards of Fire and Innovations in Ro-ro ship Environment

Project description

Protecting ro-ro ships from fires

There is a reported increase in the frequency of fires on board ro-ro (roll-on/roll-off) ships, which carry wheeled cargo like lorries and cars. To address the urgent need to improve fire protection, the EU-funded LASH FIRE project addresses 20 critical aspects identified by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The aim is to develop and demonstrate operational and design solutions to enhance fire prevention and ensure better fire management on all types of ro-ro ships. Solutions will be assessed as regards risk reduction and cost, as basis for proposals to revise IMO regulations. To ensure relevance and stimulate adoption, two advisory groups will be formed to represent operators and Flag States.
