GUIDANCE NOTES FOR THE BURNING OF COAL IN SHIPS' BOILERS

These notes on using coal as a primary source of heat for the generation of steam for main and essential auxiliary services are intended for Shipbuilders, Owners and other interested parties. They are to give guidance on the statutory and classification aspects of using coal as a fuel at sea. The relevant requirements of Lloyd's Register of Shipping's Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Ships, hereinafter called the Rules, and the National Authority with whom the ship is registered, together with any special requirements of the Administration within whose territorial jurisdiction the ship is intended to operate, are to be complied with. For the purpose of these guidance notes it is assumed that no manual handling of coal for the transportation from bunkers to boiler, or for actual firing of the boiler will be employed. The emphasis has been placed on the presumption that the boiler firing will be by some form of grate, as it is believed that this will be the more likely system to be adopted in the immediate future. The Society is, however, prepared to consider other forms of firing such as pulverised fuel, slurries of coal-oil-water mixtures or fluidized bed firing, if submitted.
