The work is carried out according to the IGF code and focuses on fatality risk related to the hydrogen systems on the vessel, both during operation and while moored in harbour. Based on this assessment, a new hydrogen ignition probability model and vulnerability thresholds are proposed. Recommendations on vessel design and risk reducing measures are also given.
The conclusion of the study is that risks associated with the hydrogen systems on the ferry are well within expected tolerance criteria.
This work has been part of a maritime case study conducted within FME MoZEES and the article is available online:
