Note

This is a study commissioned by the European Maritime Safety Agency, EMSA. It consists of two parts, investigating risk control options (RCOs) for mitigating the risk from fires on ro-ro decks. The first part considers RCOs in relation to Electrical Fire as ignition risk and the second part considers RCOs to mitigate the risk of Fire Extinguishing Failure (with focus on drencher systems). The study considers both newbuildings and existing passenger ships, and has been done per the instructions and limitations in the Tender Specifications (EMSA /OP/01/2016).

The ships included in the analysis were selected based on criteria as agreed by EMSA and the fleet at risk consisted of 490 ships. EMSA provided information about which ships were engaged in international trade.

Historical risks and hazards have been found and complemented with two fire hazard identification (HazId) workshops. The project developed three risk models to be used to investigate the effects of RCOs on the PLL and costs.

Six RCOs were selected for quantitatively analysis in the risk models for the risk of electrical fire ignition and six for drencher failure. Many other RCOs are very promising and could be further analysed in the future.
