Which places onboard has the greatest risk of fire : Where does the fires start onboard (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bränder ombord på fartyg till sjöss är en mycket allvarlig händelse då besättningen ombord måste förlita sig på sin egen kompentens och den begränsade tillgängliga utrustningen när branden skall bekämpas.

Bränderna kan snabbt gå överstyr då det finns stora mängder bränsle och i många fall är även lasten brännbar. Detta arbete har som syfte att belysa de platser ombord som det är vanligast att bränder startar på för att öka medvetenheten hos besättningen så att brand kan undvikas eller bekämpas effektivare.

Resultatet nåddes genom att sammanställa haverirapporter från nordeuropeiska länder med fartyg längre än 100m.

Slutsatsen som drogs var att det utrymmet som är mest drabbat av bränder är maskinutrymmet. De vanligaste orsakerna till brand är läckage av brännbara vätskor och elektriskt fel.

Abstract [en]

Fires onboard a seagoing vessel is a very serious accident since you can not rely on shorebased firefighers. The only resource available is the crew and their ability to tackle the situation. Fires can quickly get uncontrollable since there is large amounts of fueloil and even the cargo might be flammable. The purpose with this thesis is to highlight those places onboard that have the greatest risk of fire. So that the crew can either awoid fire or be better prepared if a fire starts.

The result is based upon data taken from incidentreports from Northern European countries and vessels with length greater than 100m.

The conclusion that was made is that the engineroom area was the most common place for fires.

The most common reasons for the fire to start was a leakage of flammable liquid  or electrical failiures.
