Identification of diesel engine defects of corvette type naval ships

Yogeswaran Sinnasamy, Dr Rahizar Ramli

Abstract


One of the main machineries of a ship is the high-speed diesel engine, which is used for main and auxiliary propulsion systems. Due to the high cost of these assets, their operational reliability needs to be optimally ensured for efficient and effective exploitation of these machineries. The current existing flow chart of registering diesel engine defects has been reviewed and a new methodology, which is more systematic and reliable has been proposed. From this study, the most prominent type of defect and its component and subsystems together with their running hours have been identified by using the information extracted from the Job Card (JC) and Return of Vessels’ Availability (ROVA) documentation. In future, this methodology could be potentially utilized for other services and applications areas of the diesel engine.
