Abstract
The study is an evaluation of the fire safety level of category B High Speed Craft built according to the High Speed Craft-Code. To verify the
conclusions and results, four category B HSC have been selected and
analysed. The fire safety evaluations of the craft are presented in separate reports. This report summarises the results from the evaluations with respect to the fire safety measures and the fire safety organisation on board. Extensive short term and long term improvements are presented in order to achieve an fully acceptable total fire safety level, among which introduction of fire risk analysis in the design process and a performance based HSC-Code are the most important improvements. Finally, the need for increased fire safety... (More)
