NAPA Emergency Response

Safety is a growing focus area in the shipping industry. The abilities to identify and test recovery strategies and create damage scenarios based on sound technical information are crucial in emergency situations. NAPA Emergency Response is a powerful tool to help ship operators and authorities to promptly identify the best recovery action when in hazardous situations and proactively prepare in advance.

NAPA Emergency Response applied for an oil tanker: calculation of oil flow discharge and grounding force


Real-time marine salvage engineering tools

  • Allows the operator to prepare proactively for damage scenarios, quickly test recovery strategies and provide positive leadership based on sound technical information
  • Capability of modelling various types of damages rapidly and efficiently
  • Simultaneous analysis of recovery strategies built using any combination of techniques
  • Testing of different scenarios throughout the tidal range by using a logical tree structure of dependent actions and the results
  • Quick evaluation and optimization of  loading combinations in order to achieve a desired floating position while keeping the ship within stability or structural constraints
  • Integration to NAPA ship models: storing of ship models locally in NAPA system and access through an intuitive interface
  • Interoperability with NAPA Loading Computer
  • Compliance with Regulation 26 of MARPOL 73/78 Annex I (Requirement of computerized, shore-based damage stability and residual structural strength calculation program for all new and existing oil tankers of 5000 dwt and above)
  • Currently in use of leading ship emergency response service-providers and ship owners worldwide

NAPA Emergency Response key features

  • Modelling of main damage types such as flooding, structural failure and groundings
  • Available recovery strategy techniques: cargo transfer, shifting of liquid loads, pumping, mass loading, over-pressurization and under-pressurization
  • Scenarios: cargo outflow, stability, grounding force, shear force and bending moment
  • Import of initial loading conditions from ship’s NAPA Loading Computer
  • Definition of loading conditions also through NAPA Emergency Response user interface
