CENIT will participate in LASH-FIRE, a European project on fire risk prevention in the loading of RO-RO ships together with important European shipping companies and research centers. The main objective of CENIT in the project is the creation of software that allows locating the load in the hold, reducing the risk of fire ignition. Our naval engineer Africa Marrero will present at the kick-off meeting in September 17 in Sweden the objectives of the project and the work plan on which the next 4 years will be focused.
