Shutting down of Main Engine Propulsion Diesel Engine 07 Jun 2017 23:14 #4840

1) Transferring of the Engine command is to be done only after FWE(finished with engine) has been conveyed to Engine room from bridge i.e. the bridge do not require the Main engines any more and the Main engine plant can be shut.

Second after transferring the control to Engine room, the engines will be lubricated of its liners and engine blown on air, for which the propellor clearance has to be taken while transferring the control.

2)After cylinder liner lubrication and blowing the engine on air, in order to prepare the main engine for maintenance, depending on the type of maintenance to be done engine's cooling water and/or lubricating oil can be stopped and drained accordingly. For example, if maintenance is just scavenge space cleaning then there is no need of stopping cooling water pump and L.O. Pumps, but say you need to change the fuel injectors you will be required to stop only F.O.Circulating pump but the C.W. & L.O.pump would be running as usual. But if need to do decarbonisation of any unit then you will have to stop all three pumps i.e. L.O,C.W. & F.O. Pumps.

So it depends on the type and scope of maintenance, you have planned that will decide on the steps you have to take vis-a-vis Main engine.
