Due attention has been paid to the selection of the proper engines and its subsequent installation on board ship, operating the engine, and the engines controlled electronically. The main text part of the publication is supplemented with the numerous detailed and informative drawings illustrating the mechanics of the different designs of the marine diesel engines. The volume will be great when used as guidance for the people preparing for the exams for the competency certificates; in addition, it will be very helpful for the marine engineers working on board ships and willing to refresh their knowledge.
The book opens with the chapter providing general information about the low speed engines. The second chapter focuses on the engine construction, followed by the chapter on the safety and additional systems installed on the engines.
