CBRN Modelling & Response Preparedness Projects

HORIZON 2020 project

This ISOLA project brings up challenging issues to a unique landscape by creating extensive safety and security solutions that can weather the high seas. Passenger and cargo ships face both external and onboard human safety threats. The ISOLA project will incorporate cutting edge technologies into existing ship safety protocol to further secure the safety of the vessel and its passengers. With a memorable history of piracy and terrorism the shipping and cruise industry look for new ways to ensure they can prevent the next catastrophe. 

Prometech is deploying its HAVAC dispersion model to keep constant analysis of potential aerosolized threats. Using chemical sensor sources throughout the vessel’s ventilation system the predictive HAVAC model can quickly predict the most impacted zones to alert the bridge to the danger. This will allow for crew to evacuate the contaminated areas before they are at dangerous levels of the substance. From this interface simultaneous preventative measures can be simulated and the best one can be put to action. 

The ISOLA project is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme and started in Q3 of 2020 and will continue for three years until its completion in Q3 of 2023. The project will have five demonstrations exploring different aspects of ISOLA project solutions to the major threats to sea vessels and their passengers. Prometech is one of 25 different partners in the ISOLA project consortium. This broad group consists of shipping and cruise industry end users, technical innovation SMEs and maritime research institutes.  

National programme project

The Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Advanced Training Curriculum the Hague or CATCH project developed a comprehensive and EU standardised CBRN training and educational curriculum –The Hague CBRN Curriculum (HCC). The project intended to develop certified training for the European market, which addressed the requirements of the curriculum.

The project delivered a complete and certified CBRN response training programme and educational curriculum of international allure, which covers the full spectrum from basic knowledge through Live Agent Training to a Master Course. The Hague CBRN curriculum is the first that meets criteria set by the EU and the OPCW. Once the CATCH project has been accepted as a European Standard, the name of City of The Hague will be inextricably linked to a complete and certified CBRN training curriculum that can be implemented worldwide. 

The consortium consisted of a mixture of SMEs, international and national organisations and research and education institutes. The partners included Hotzone Solutions Benelux BV, Prometech BV, the Dutch Institute for Normalisation NEN, the international Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), and the Netherlands Institute of International Relations Clingendael.
