The paper describes the condition monitoring system for steam propulsion plants, "Predikt 10 Steam". The system is newly developed and is based on manual measurement readings and computerized calculations of the steam plant efficiencies, heat balance and trend analysis. This system, specially made for use on board, is compared to similar systems, concerning such factors as methods, advantages and disadvantages. Potential savings, acquired from earlier experience with condition monitoring for steam plants, are presented. The prototype version T/T "ADNA", is described in more detail, and the complete set of measurement data, component efficiencies and heat balance data are presented. Experience with installing and operating the version T/T "ADNA" so far, is promising. More experience will be gained during 1977 by installing 12 new systems actually ordered by January 1977.
