This article throws light on LNG ships in general. The two most famous designs of Q-flex and TFDE LNG ships are being compared. Find out the operational advantages of tri-fuel diesel electric propulsion over diesel engine propulsion.
Marine Boilers play an integral part in the operation of a ship. Proper maintenance of these boilers is required for their smooth working and thus it’s important to understand their working. Find out the science behind the marine boiler water circulation on ships.
Electrical ratings of transformer and alternator on ships are always done in kVA. Find out why they are mentioned in only KVA and not in KW, by understanding the concept behind the electrical systems working on ship.
A Ship cannot run on the traditional electrical systems with less voltage. The high capacity marine diesel engines and other machinery on ships require higher voltage systems to produce more electrical power. Find out the reasons for using high voltage systems on board ships.
Anti-seize compounds are used on ships to prevent seizure of metal components which takes place because of several reasons. Mentioned herein are the most important anti seize compounds that are used on ships.
Earth fault is considered very critical on board a ship. Some ships which operate at 440 V do not have any trip devices attached for a single earth fault. However when the operating voltage exceeds 3000V, it is mandatory to have a protection system which isolates when a machinery suffers an earth fault.
Loading arms is a type of loading arrangement found on LNG carriers. The article describes construction and working of the loading arm, along with important technical aspects of the system
Fire on ships occurs because of several reasons. In this article, we have mentioned a curious incident of fire on board ship which had a very rare cause – bacteria.
