Marine Engineering


This course is one of those provided by the world famous Marlins as one of their CBT, i.e. the computer-based training. It will be of great importance and use for the people whose everyday job activities involve operation and maintenance of the shipboard oily water separation equipment. We know that incorrect use of the shipboard oily water separating arrangements or intentional bypass of the subject separators can eventually result in the huge fines imposed on the ship operators and owners by the authorities.

The main objective of the present course is to explore and professionally analyze the major environmental problems commonly caused by polluting the marine environment by oil from ships, as well as the most common situations with the separators. The trainees will get to understand the operating principles of the oily water separators and know how their oil content monitors actually work.

The course will be beneficial to all crew members and should take from two to three hours to complete. So, take your time and go through the information provided by the course authors very carefully to ensure due understanding of all contents, as it will helpful when performing your onboard duties.

This is a set of three mini-programs that would be useful to the marine engineers. Of course, these cannot be compared to the modern heavy-weight and multifunctional software. However, some basic functionality is provided making these programs useful bot for training and on board ship.

Developed by the TurboSoft, one of the most recognized software providers in the maritime shipping industry, the programs will work on any computer, are virus-free and will not require any sort of password, paid registration etc. They will help you when calculating the size of the marine diesel engine, and calculating the VE, i.e. the volumetric efficiency. We definitely recommend you to have them on your laptop. Note that the size of the software is absolutely minimal.

Here is a Student Version of the popular Virtual Engine Room simulator which is the computer-based training resource developed for the trainees who require some practice with the foil mission engine room simulator taking into account all relevant requirements of the ISM Code and STCW Convention. It incorporates all critical systems presented in the engine room of the vessels - they have all been duly modelled and implemented.

This version shows all switches and lamps, levers and consoles, analogue gauges and push buttons plus the digitized sounds required. The are mimic diagrams similar to those found in 'Big' simulators- divided into smaller sections. The multichannel digitized sound is folly comparable with the best simulators available today.

VER_FREE has many features which are not currently available in big foil mission simulators including built in checklists that can be used by students when learning by themselves. Another unique and important feature of this compact simulator is the CAA, standing for the Computer Aided Assessment which is used to evaluate the competency of the students.

The present 1.0.6 version Unitor Waterproof Water Control System is another useful tool developed by the specialists of this company who had a primary intention to provide the chief engineers of the vessel with a handy tool to be used as a practical and efficient instrument for recording water test results and their subsequent storage.

The data in this application can either be stored on board the vessel or, alternatively, engineers may wish to send the results ashore for further reporting purposes and analysis. Note that performing the system test in a correct manner is only half the job; it is also critically important to duly store the results obtained, making them Waterproof.

The users shall take into account that the content of the attached help file is presented in Turkish language; in the meantime, the entire user interface of the application is in English. An excellent, very simple and remarkably practical software which is definitely a must-have on board any vessel. Download it and start using.
