You are joining as CE. How will you come to know ISM is effectively implemented. Assignment of loadline. When class notation is given. What all class notation do you have. what are green house gases? vetting and port state control difference. In the way to engine room collision has taken action as chief engineer. As CE what repair will you suggest to carry out in Drydock In a voyage sudden increase in fuel consumption will you find the fault. What is CLC ? What is the definition of persistent oil. What is the SCOPIC clause? Assignment of loadline. What is CIC by PSC? How will you implement ism on chief engineer on a new ship How will you prepare for seq survey How will you prepare loadline survey Aux eng crankshaft broken how will you prepare the report for H and M surveyor LO consumption high ..what checks Drydock preparation You have fuel which is not compliant , and you have to leave port and no fuel is available , what will you do as a chief engin

Precautions to be Observed during Docking & Undocking

Bunkers should not be taken when the ship is on the blocks. In cases where ships sail out immediately after dry-docking. Bunker is to be supplied after the ship has undocked and is floating. Shore power cables are to be connected after the ship has docked and the dock is dry. The cables should be disconnected before flooding the dock. During the flooding of the dock, the flooding is stooped when the level of water in the dock reaches just above the high suction box. All the sea suction valves under the floor plates should be checked for any leaks. In this situation, the ship is not floating and is still sitting firmly on the blocks. This verification is necessary to avoid any mistakes made by shipyard staff whereby some valves have not been fitted their cover joint sand gland packings. A second docking can be avoided by this check. The Master and C/E should visit the dry dock before flooding and verify the following before giving orders for flooding:     (a) The rudder faste

Dry Docking - Part 2

SCOPE OF DRY DOCK WORK:   The list of jobs to be carried out during dry docking are as under: BOTTOM INSPECTION AND CORRECTIVE ACTION AS RECOMMENDED BY CLASSIFICATION SOCIETY SURVEYOR .                                                                                                                                                                               The first visit of the surveyor on the ship. This inspection is carried out and the dock is dry with the ship's bottom scraped free of barnacle growth. This inspection is usually carried out during daylight hours especially after daybreak. In case the ship docks late in the night the following morning. The attending superintendent along with Master C/E, C/O & 2/O will enter the dock and go around the ship from forward to aft. The yard attending repair manager will also be present during this inspection.                                                                        This general inspection and any noticeabl

How will you describe battery capacity and discharge and its ampere-hour?

A battery's capacity is the amount of electrical charge it can deliver at the rated voltage. The more electrode material contained in the cell the greater its capacity. A small cell has less capacity than a larger cell with the same chemistry, although they develop the same open circuit voltage. Capacity is measured in units such as amp-hour(A-h). The rated capacity of a battery is usually expressed as the product of 20 hours multiplied by the current that a new battery can consistently supply for 20 hours at 20'C while remaining above a specified terminal voltage per cell. For example, a battery rated at 100Ah can deliver 5A over a 20-hour period at room temperature. The fraction of the stored charge that a battery can deliver depends on multiple factors, including battery chemistry, the rate at which the charge is delivered, the required terminal voltage, the storage period, ambient temperature and other factors. The higher the discharge rate, the lower the capacity.
