INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES FOR CONTAINERSHIP FIRES PREVENTION AND MANAGEMENT

OVERHEAT PROJECT

Project at a Glance

Maritime transport is crucial for global trade, moving almost all goods worldwide. Containerships face a significant fire safety issue due to the lack of fixed fire detection above the weather deck. This can lead to catastrophic losses both on land and at sea. The OVERHEAT project aims to provide cutting-edge digital fire management solutions that prioritize safety, environmental protection, and regulatory compliance.

Expected Impact

Safe, seamless, smart, inclusive, resilient, climate neutral and sustainable mobility systems for people and goods thanks to user-centric technologies and services including digital technologies and advanced satellite navigation services

Implementation Strategy

1. Validation Activities: Initial evaluation through simulated environments to test the effectiveness of the proposed solutions.
2. Demonstration Activities: Real-world implementation to showcase the feasibility and benefits of the innovative fire management strategies.
3. Use Cases Development: Identification, description, and detailing of specific scenarios to demonstrate the practical application of the solutions.
