EV Fires on Ropax Ferries

With the increase of electric and hybrid vehicles worldwide, it’s prudent to adjust and improve safety measures on ROPAX ferries accordingly. Although unlikely, when a fire in an EV occurs, the consequences can be severe. A fire in a lithium battery is difficult to extinguish and can flare up again long after it has been extinguished. If this happens on the vehicle deck of a passenger ferry during a crossing, it’s advisable to have the latest technologies and methods implemented in the safety management plan to suppress, contain, and extinguish an electric vehicle fire.

ADEC Kedge worked confidentially with the clients to consult on improved safety measures aboard ROPAX ferries.
