Design guidelines are presented resulting from a study carried out by Y.Ard into the auxiliary machinery for the main propulsion plant for three ocean-going merchant ships. Design of the propulsion plant for each vessel was based on the principle of a packaged machinery installation, by which one main machinery contractor is responsible, not only for main engine itself, but also for all propulsion machinery, and the principle of auxiliary machinery modules, in which all auxiliary mechinery relevant to a particular system or group of systems is arranged as a unit and is installed in vessel in one lift. The three ships were a bulk carrier, a tanker, and a refrigerated cargo liner.
