ELBE ORE. EXPERIENCE WITH THE NON-CONTINUOUSLY MANNED ENGINE ROOM

On this 78,000 dwt bulk carrier, there are no continuous watches kept on long sea passages by engineer officers and ratings. They are employed on daywork duties inside and outside the machinery spaces. Normal watches are kept leaving and approaching ports, in congested waters and when visibility is poor. An engineer officer makes an inspection of the machinery every six hours using a check list of items to be inspected and conditions to be observed. This is the vital part of the whole operation. Experience so far is that one or two alarms (sometimes false) may be expected each week during the nondayworking hours. Details are given for the systems installation and operation, and its effects on the bridge officer.
