netmar

NETMAR, a project focused on the demonstration, evaluation and dissemination of new robotic systems, sensors and networking technologies in maritime incidents endangering human life, the environment and economic activities finished in March 2015, but the journal about the Shannon Estuary Incident Response Exercise (a.k.a. Exercise Cathach) was published this year on the Marine Pollution Bulletin 110 (2016) pp. 528-538.

The partners of Project NETMAR are getting ready for the last demonstration of the project.

On May 28th and 29th, partners will meet at Porto de Leixões, Portugal for another exercise regarding maritime safety, incident response and oil spill control.
In this simulation a ship is reported to have sunk North of Porto and oil spill has been detected, near shore, a few kilometers south.

During the last week a team from LSTS went to Galicia and Corunna to take part in the second demo of the project NETMAR, that happened at 1st October at A Pobra do Caramiñal.

The scenario created for this exercise, involved a ship that suffered damage to the hull during a storm and was leaking fuel causing a spill. An UAV would then be deployed to assess the contaminated area. Drifters would also be deployed to accurately understand the way the fuel was spreading and an UAV would make a survey to acquire a more precise image of the contaminated area. During this operation containment measure would be put in place and a ROV would make a hull inspection to evaluate the damage.

After the demonstration a smaller part of the team headed further north for the seminar "New scenarios of maritime safety in the European Union. Reflections after the Erika and Prestige disasters” at Oleiros.
