European Framework for Safe, Efficient and Environmentally-Friendly Ship Operations (FLAGSHIP)

Duration: 01.01.2007-31.12.2010 (36 months)

Coordination: ECSA and BMT (UK)

Partners: European Community Shipowners' Associations and WEGEMT

Funding Entity: EU - SUST Programme

The aim of the project is to improve ships’ performance, and thus its efficiency, by addressing those operational factors that are connected to operability and availability of the ship itself. The effect of waves in rough weather is of the factors that mostly degrade the ship efficiency. In this way, the objective of the project will be achieved by developing an on-board decision support system for tactical decisions of ship handling in waves which enables the master to improve ship performance while minimizing the likelihood of structural damage.
