Sunken wreck environmental risk assessment (SWERA)
Research Project , 2014 – 2016

SWERA, Sunken Wreck Environmental Risk Assessment is a new approach towards to better under-standing of the pollution threat of sunken ships. The new and innovative approach combines the theoretical risk assessment method developed at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden with an oil removal risk tool by SYKE and Alfons Håkans Ltd. Preparing a joint wreck register will be coordinated by Tallinn Technical University. The novel salvage support tool will further advice technicians and salvage operators to design the safe and economically feasible way to work close to the sunken wreck, and to execute successful operations.
