Sailing towards new flood risk assessment for ships
The FLARE project will target a risk-based methodology for “live” flooding risk assessment and control, by developing a generic (all incidents in one model) and holistic (active and passive measures) risk model with potential application to newbuildings and, which is totally new, to existing ships. Innovative technical solutions in ship concepts and equipment for risk containment and control will be accompanied by proposals for the revision of relevant IMO regulations towards a risk-based approach to contain and control risk in passenger ships from flooding incidents, thereby significantly contributing to the safety of both passenger and ship.
The FLARE consortium compromises key stakeholders from industry, academia and policy makers, involved in ship flooding risk research as a Group for over twenty years.
