A new 362-foot passenger and vehicle ferry vessel is under development and will include capacity for up to 1500 passengers and 144 vehicles.
The vessel will include two vehicle decks with accommodations ranging from small passenger cars to larger freight and large goods trucks. RJA provided fire modeling services to assess smoke production and smoke movement from various car and truck design fire scenarios as part of an assessment to review occupant egress conditions throughout the vehicle decks. The fire modeling was also used to assess the thermal impact on the deck resulting from the large design fire scenarios.
