Public SP coordinated Reg. 17 assessments
SP and involved partners have agreed to share some reports documenting fire risk assessments for different FRP composite ship structures according to SOLAS chapter II-2 regulation 17. The assessments were coordinated by SP Fire Research and performed as part of the research projects BESST and Eco-Island ferry. The ambition is to demonstrate state of the art of regulation 17 assessments for FRP composite structures. The preliminary analysis report of the small ro-pax island ferry has received “approval in principal” from an Administration.
