Re: wartsila 4WL20

Both suction and discharge lines were below the sump level, and there was a flap check to stop oil drainage...
Interesting.

Re: abb tps 48 turbocharger

Have the manual, but need a video reference...

Don't want to be pessimistic, bud, but you should probably get an ABB technician (and learn from he/she), rather than a YouTube video...

What position/rank are you in?
Where are you geographically, any ABB vendors near you?

Re: wartsila 4WL20

I must be able to be done.

Picture?
Line diagram?
It's a pre-lube so it's +ve disp, so it's probably is above the oil level and draws the oil up...

I'm sure it's fine.

Re: Engine cannot start

I presume all the valves, air pressure, and proper levels of fluids are in good order.

Is there any alarms given when it fails to start.
Electrical problems from a sensor.
Mechanical over speed tripped.
Interlocks or limit switches?
Does the government arm move any when it's cranking?

Re: Tattoo for engineers

Agreed, it bugs me as a sailor when non-sailor hipsters get traditional sailor tattoos... The wimps wouldn't survive on a ship - lack of safe spaces and too many microaggressions going around lol

Re: Bunkering regulations

I don't think that's a regulation.
A good practice, for most situation, but I can't see it being a reg.

Re: MPR2019 on the horizon, finally

This is...more or less the same as last may. Application process with sea time when holding a ticket over watchkeeper, but with some extra courses. Chief under 6MW is our 2nd class. And what in the fuck is 211 (1)? And notice subsection 89(1) is "reserved". When you go to the meeting, tell...

Re: Chief Engineer - 28 day assignment in NL

$650 is quite too little.
It actually feels disrespectful to the qualifications/position.

A first class ticket very much deserves at least $800/day.
