Research output: Book/ReportReportAcademic


This report provides an overview of regulatory framework for operations at sea and specific requirements for health, safety and environmental issues on multi-use platforms. For this purpose, an inventory table of rules and regulations was compiled, which reflects the rules and regulations on HSE issues relevant to floating modules at sea as those being developed within the Space@Sea project. The offshore industry is known for its thorough health and safety regulations. The harsh maritime environment enforces a top priority for health and safety. In order to insure health and safety on multi-use marine platforms it is important to understand their behaviour in certain environmental conditions. The assessment of Health Safety and Environmental issues will set standard preconditions for the floating island constructions. Particularly, the potential food and feed safety hazards as well as the associated environmental risks that may result from the multi-use platform environment needs to be investigated.Health and safety hazards and environmental risks including food safety will be assessed for all steps of the multi-use platform life cycle with a special focus on construction, installation, operation, maintenance and decommissioning. Following from previous analysis of technology options a full HAZID study will be developed reviewing potential hazards for the proposed floating modules being developed in WP 6 (Energy Hub), 7 (Living), 8 (Farming) and 9 (Transport & Logistics). Risk assessments are documented in risk matrixes for WP6 and will be further elaborated for other applications of floating modules. The results of these risk assessment studies will be presented in a HAZID Report, not being part of this Deliverable.
