Fire at sea is a hot topic - especially now with both the use of battery power for propulsion and with the carriage of batteries at sea, as the emerging risk of a battery fire is becoming an increasing concern for the maritime community.
The potential danger which lithium-ion batteries can pose, whether inside electric vehicles or transported as standalone cargoes, including the risk of a battery fire if they are not handled, stored or transported correctly being a very relevant hazard. The above challenges plus many others have been considered in the recently published reports of DBI’s ELBAS (Electric Vehicle Fires at Sea) and the CARGOSAFE study (addressing how to develop new proposals to reduce the risk of fires on container ships) carried out by DBI. Regulators are also working on new guidance and recommendations for best practices in the area. Come and hear about the conclusion and recommendations of ELBAS and CARGOSAFE as well as hear latest developments in battery fire safety in maritime industry and gain insight into this challenging area.

Programme: To be announced later on.

The event is in collaboration with Danish Society for Naval Architecture and IDA Maritim
