Abstract:

The scalable emergency system is intended to cover the full scale of possible at-sea incidents from the routine to the rare from the detection and decontamination of a single piece of equipment before it is loaded on a vessel, to the response, rescue, containment and rehabilitation of a vessel in open waters. The system will be able to safely and quickly decontaminate cargo and personnel, as well as entire vessels at sea and in port. This report finalizes the top level design of the four 4 primary concepts selected for the program.
