Shock Mitigation, International Vibration Directives and the Implications of Brexit

John Haynes - AFNI FRINA Shock Mitigation

As the UK marine industry considers the implications of Brexit this session looks at how high speed craft requirements and expectations are changing for the professional and commercial sectors in the UK, Europe and US.

A challenge for builders of fast workboats and military vessels on both sides of the Atlantic is delivering platforms that balance performance with physical demands on crew and passengers.

Technical shock mitigation solutions include more efficient hull forms, appendages to improve trim and ride quality plus suspension seating and cushion decking materials.

But shock mitigation is not just about reducing injury - organisations can increase sea time for assets, cover greater distances at higher speeds, improve crew performance and extend operational effectiveness. The consistent objective is that passengers arrive safely at their destination ready to perform a task.

A high incidence of injuries to personnel can affect the overall performance of any maritime organisation, but there is no 'one off' solution to the demands of fast boats at sea. Recent activity has been driven by the need to comply with Vibration Directives, which will still apply with or without Brexit.

John Haynes of Shock Mitigation has brought together a panel of industry experts to identify genuine innovations and answer the hard questions.
