One of the main LASH FIRE objectives addressed to WP05 is to evaluate and demonstrate ship integration feasibility and cost of developed operational and design risk control measures for all types of ro-ro ships and all types of ro-ro spaces.

As a starting point for the developments at LASH FIRE, generic ships are selected, and integration requirements defined for each specific development. Evaluation of the risk control measures includes technical assessment, Lifecycle cost assessment (LCC) and environmental (Life cycle assessment, LCA) providing the assessment results to the development teams during the development, enabling further adjustments and optimisation. Finally, at least 15 most promising solutions shall be validated through testing and onboard demonstration.
