ABS has published a broader range of notations for firefighting in container ship cargo areas in a newly released guide. The guide is the first of its kind to address firefighting and safety systems of cargo holds of container vessels. ABS’ newest container ship firefighting systems for cargo areas guide is intended for use by ship designers, builders, owners, and operators in the marine industry. As such, it specifies the ABS requirements for addressing fire safety in four key areas: firefighting for containers stowed on deck, firefighting for containers stowed below, fire safety of the deckhouse, and container hold flooding as a measure for firefighting.
