There have been so many changes in the maritime shipping industry resulting from the rapid technological advances, especially in the field of marine diesel engine design as well as the shipboard practices. The sizes of the commonly used medium-speed diesels have increased; subject engines would normally be found on board larger ships where they are used for propulsion. Serious changes have also affected the slow-speed engines.
Three major marine diesel producers now make them in more or less similar design featuring long stroke. The present new edition of the publication will provide guidance to the marine engineers; however, it shall be noted that the official manufacturer’s documentation including operation and user manuals, maintenance manuals etc. must be referred to at all times. In addition, due attention shall be paid to safety aspects.
It shall also be understood that the recent technical developments in the field of ship and marine engine designs have in many cases be dictated by the latest anti-pollution rules and regulations. As we can see, more and more emphasis is being placed on the marine pollution prevention and the crew members shall also have a good understanding of these and follow the relevant instructions as necessary.
