Innovative risk-based tools for ship safety inspection (SAFEPEC)

Start date: Oct 1, 2014, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

"Ships are subject to inspections from different stakeholders, such as port states, classification societies, ship owners, managers and operators, among others. Each one has its own inspection method depending upon its role in the vessel operation. Consequently, all inspections monitor the ship condition and report respective data. However no means exist today to inter-relate the data which are sy ...

... k opened in the early 2000s which leads to an increase of almost 200 mill. t to about 400 mill. t of transported oil in the Baltic per year. The SB region is one of the most difficult passages in the world with narrow shipping lanes, heavy traffic and tackling sea state conditions. Additionally, the small spatial extension induces the need to act very fast when it comes to a shipborne oil spill. T ...

The Baltic Sea’s unique ecology is under a lot of pressure. Fishing, maritime pollution from ships and substantial additions of nutrition from e.g. sewage and farming all pose a threat to the inland sea where the water is estimated to take 30 years to renew. At all times there are some 2000 ships in movement, and each year we see 120-140 collisions and groundings in the Baltic Sea – both traffic a ...

Shipping is a major industry carrying nearly 90% of world trade that depends on the competence of seafarers. The language of the sea is Maritime English (ME) and yet a review of International Maritime Organisation (IMO) requirements for ME clearly indicates that there are no requirements for a qualification for ME. The IMO passes the responsibility for ME competency to ship operating companies. Fu ...
