For 8-cylinder engines and up, the inspections require two attending engineers, who are
included in the price.
It is expected that the installed turning gear and other safety gear are in good working condition. If for instance the turning gear of the blockage of the main starting valve, etc., is found defective, we reserve the right not to conduct inspections, which may be deemed to pose a security risk to our attending engineer.
We recommend that the on board electrician participates in the inspections mentioned above relevant for his tasks on board.
In general, we expect the on board crew to assist in preparing access to the parts and confined spaces relevant for the inspections. If we only have one superintendent engineer on board, one of the vessel’s engineers must stand by and perhaps participate in the inspections for safety reasons. We will not accept that our superintendent engineers work on their own in any of the confined spaces mentioned and relevant for the above inspections.
We also recommend and support that crankcase inspections, deflection and main bearing clearance readings are conducted as a joint venture with the on board engineers in order to align future recordings/measurement.
We often observe relatively large differences in clearances recorded by the on board crew when comparing the actual measurements made by our attending superintendent engineers. In order to avoid confusion and discussions caused by differences in the obtained measurements, the clearances/deflections should be made by an appointed on board engineer, supervised and spot checked by our attending superintendent engineer.
This service includes one superintendent
engineer for approximately two days followed
by a written report.
