The WINOIL (Winter navigation risks and oil contingency plan) project sought to improve maritime safety by developing a reliable ice navigation simulation and enhancing oil spill control capabilities in ice conditions.

The project developed recommendations regarding cost-effective risk management measures designed to reduce the environmental, human and financial risks in the Gulf of Finland’s winter conditions. In addition, a numerical model of how vessels behave in ice conditions was developed.

The WINOIL project updated the Russo-Finnish contingency plan for oil spills, and confirmed the effectiveness of cooperation and information exchange in emergency situations.

Funding

Southeastern Finland–Russia ENPI, with a budget of 693,353 euros.

Project partners
