OVERVIEW

This lecture of the Marine Engineering curriculum covers the competencies concerned with planning and scheduling engineering operations; start-up and shut down of main and auxiliary machinery; performance monitoring; fuel and ballast operations management and safety management  (ref. IMO Model Course Chief Engineer and Second Officer).

The lecture is elective for the Deck Officer curriculum; it covers competence 3.3 and competence 3.4 of the IMO Model Course for Master and Chief Mate

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Design principles of ship propulsion plants, ship auxiliary plants and ship safety plants. Manage fuel, lubrication and ballast operations. Pumps and piping operation and maintenance. Manage safe and effective maintenance. Planning maintenance. Safety procedures. Life saving appliances. Fire fighting. Fire detection. Fire prevention

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the lecture is to provide in-depth knowledge of the subjects included in IMO MODEL COURSE Chief Engineer and Second Officer, as well as Italian Law for Master and Chief Engineer CoC. In particular, the following competencies are addressed:
