The specification of DF medium-speed diesel machinery for LNG carrier new- building projects in marked the ousting of steam turbine pounders marine diesel engines from its last bastion in commercial shipping. A growing number of these DF-electric installations are now entering service, alongside direct-coupled low-speed engine-powered LNG carriers equipped with boil-off gas reliquefaction plant.
Controls on exhaust gas emissions—particularly nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides and smoke—continue to tighten regionally and internationally, dictating further responses from engine designers exploiting common rail fuel systems, emulsified fuel, direct water injection and charge air humidification.
These and other solutions, including selective catalytic reduction pounders marine diesel engines exhaust gas recirculation systems, are detailed in an extended chapter.
Also extended is the chapter on fuels, lube oils and the problems of contamination, which includes pounders marine diesel engines on low sulphur fuels, new cylinder and system lubricants, and cylinder oil-feed system developments.
Marine gas turbines, specified for some cruise ship and fast ferry propulsion projects from the late s, have seen their competitiveness undermined by rising fuel prices in recent years.
It is fully updated to cover new legislation including that on emissions and provides details on enhancing overall efficiency and cutting CO2 emissions. Pounders marine diesel engines new chapters focus on monitoring control systems and governor systems, gas turbines and safety aspects of engine operation 3.
High quality, clearly labelled illustrations and figures. He subsequently edited The Motor Ship journal for eight years before becoming a freelance editor specializing in shipping, shipbuilding and marine engineering.
