Abstract

The main propulsion engine of a vessel has to operate under harsh environmental conditions that includes very rough weather, concurrent failure of one or more units of the engine and failure of one or more subsystems of the main engine. Such failures at high seas could lead to disastrous consequences, which could include damage to ship’s machinery, injury and fatality of shipboard personnel and pollution of the sea. Reliability and Safety of the main propulsion engine needs to be looked at holistically when the main engine operates under harsh environmental condition. Mathematical modelling for computing reliability of the main propulsion engine, combined with a relevant safety check list for the engine room, based on expert elicitation could be a good solution for an unremarkable voyage of the vessel under a harsh scenario. This paper intends to look at the harsh scenario for a bulk carrier propelled by a large main propulsion engine and arrive at a plan for a safe and reliable voyage of the vessel.
