Advances in automation and centralized control of modern ships have led to full acceptance of the periodically unattended engine room, covered now in the rules of most major classification societies. The first turbine tanker, The Thorshammer, to receive "EO" classification for unattended engine room operation by Det norske Veritas is now at sea under the ownership of A/S Thor Dahl of Norway. This ship is equipped with the most modern propulsion machinery and control equipment suiting owner's requirements for speed and efficiency, and owner's and Det norske Veritas requirements for unattended plant operation. Various proposals for equipment and controls for unattended marine steam plants have been presented in other papers. Here, an actual plant and control system for a ship in service is fully described, with emphasis on features and trials related to "EO" classification.
