Learn how different methods and arrangements that are used to supply fresh charge air to marine diesel engines have changed over the years.
Though a ships’ 2-Stroke Marine Engine goes through a number of major and minor problems during its working cycle, there are a few problems which are most commonly seen. Learn about eight such problems in the article inside.
A ship’s main propulsion engine is a massive structure which needs to firmly installed in the ship’s engine room to prevent damage to the ship and the engine because of various forces generated. Find out how ship’s main engine is fitted in the ship’s engine room.
If you are a marine engineer or aspiring to be one, then it’s obvious that you would eat, breath, and sleep marine engines. In this article, we have enumerated eight important definitions of marine engine terms related to engine’s combustion chamber which will be used throughout the professional life of a marine engineer.
The efficiency of the overall ship depends a lot on the efficiency of the engine running in its engine room. One of the important factors to ensure efficiency of marine engines is to control the power produced from each of its cylinder. Find out how power balancing helps to solve this problem and what you should be careful about while carrying out this process
As the RPM of marine engine reduces, the air supply from turbocharger also reduces. However, Variable Geometry Turbocharger or Variable Turbine Angle (VTA) Turbocharger supplies sufficient scavenge air to marine engine’s cylinder at all load ranges. Find out more inside.
Wartsila- A major player in the marine engine manufacturing industry has introduced an intelligent cylinder lubrication system in its electronically controlled engine. Known as the pulse lubrication system, the arrangement allows metered quantity of cylinder oil to be injected in the liner, depending on the engine load. Read inside to know more.
Efficient combustion of fuel oil in marine engines not only ensures reduction of fuel consumption but also promises a significant drop of carbon emissions in the engine exhaust. In this article we have described eight important ways to achieve efficient combustion in marine engines.
The tri fuel engine concept for container ship is a unique concept which allows a single engine to use three different marine fuels. Learn how this engine can reduce ship’s emission and help in the green revolution inside the article.
High Efficiency R & D on Combustion with Ultra Low Emissions for Ships or HERCULES is a maritime research on marine engine & its parts to reduce ships Emission
When a ship is being constructed in a shipyard, the most important machinery that is to be selected is the main propulsion machinery. Both 2 stroke and 4 stroke engines are widely available in the market but for large ocean going merchant vessel, a 2 stroke engine is more commonly used as main engine and […]
Marine engines are one of the biggest and expensive engines in the world. It requires great engineering skills and resources to manufacture such massive machinery, which is responsible for propulsion of the ship. The criteria for purchasing a marine engine are to get higher speed along with economical fuel consumption and long machinery life. As […]
