ELBAS

Electric Vehicle Fires at Sea: New Technologies and Methods For Suppression, Containment, and Extinguishing for Battery Car Fires On Board Ships (ELBAS)

The overall goal is to present new, holistic fire strategies for EV battery fires at sea to prevent and manage potential increase in fires as EVs make up a growing part of the Danish car fleet.

The project runs from: 2 September 2021 to 2 September 2022 Read more
Contain

Contain

Fires on board container ships are an increasing problem on a global scale. Historically, these fires have proven to be extremely complex and difficult to manage.

The project runs from: 1 November 2019 to 31 December 2020 Read more

E-ferry

The project's aim is to design, build and demonstrate a 100% electrically-powered "green" ferry. The ferry will be able to transport passengers, cars and lorries on full scale over longer distances than seen hitherto.
Project lead
Claus Langhoff
Project Manager

The project runs from: 1 June 2015 to 31 May 2020 Read more
FIRST

FIRST

The purpose of the project is to optimize the fire safety for future autonomous ships. We want to provide a foundation for a holistic fire strategy for autonomous small ferries in Denmark.
Project lead
Anders Dragsted
Project Manager

The project runs from: January 1st 2018 to March 31st 2019 Read more
Trailer cat

Trailer cat

The aim is to reduce costs for trailers by 50%, and a 70% reduction of CO2 emissions per trailer. In addition, the market must be analysed and a business case developed. This will serve as a good basis for negotiation between partners, customers, ports, shipyards, ministries, etc.

Carsten Møller
Research and Innovation Consultant

The project runs from: 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2018 Read more
New fire strategies in the wake of Umoe Ventus

New fire strategies in the wake of Umoe Ventus

The purpose of this project is to rethink and strengthen fire-fighting on board especially-exposed FRP vessels, by developing new guidelines for fire prevention, based on experience from the Umoe Ventus accident.
Project lead
Anders Dragsted
Project Manager

The project runs from: 1 March to 9 February 2018 Read more
Blue battery

Blue battery

The aim of the project is to improve fire safety in battery systems at sea. This is achieved by investigating previous fires in battery systems and as recommendations for future use of maritime battery systems.
Project lead
Anders Dragsted
Project Manager

The project runs from: 1 April to 22 december 2017 Read more
Smoke and toxicity at sea

Smoke and toxicity at sea

The project's overall purpose is to achieve a basis for a future Danish strategy for FRP components for maritime construction. This will be achieved by documenting any safety risks in relation to the smoke emissions of approved FRP products. The project's results will hereby contribute to strengthening fire safety on vessels with FRP components.
Project lead
Lene S. Kristensen
Reaction to Fire Engineer

The project ran from: 1 August 2016 to 30 September 2017 Read more
COMPASS

COMPASS

The purpose of the COMPASS project was to facilitate the design process for passenger vessels in lightweight composites for shipyards, suppliers and shipping companies. The purpose was also to facilitate the approval process for civil vessels with lightweight composite components.
Project lead
Carsten Møller
Research and Innovation Consultant

The project ran from: 1 January 2014 to 30 September 2016 Read more
Lightship

Lightship

The aim of the project was to gain an overview of and disseminate the knowledge available concerning commercial ship construction in FRP, by involving relevant operators in the maritime value chain.
