Re: MAN User Group

Well done! " Machine Underperforming Grossly " its a bit of an understatement , but for sure gives a valid representation of the situation. I do see your point about the courses and the value obtained from such , however I did find this MUG conference to be a bit different than what you so...

Re: MAN User Group

Correct there is the issue. There is a 10 micron auto back flush filter in the fuel module and only a 25 micron filter before the engine inlet. Agreed this is crazy. The new filter is an exact copy of the 10 micron filter in the fuel module only it will be installed in the booster circuit before the...

Re: MAN User Group

Re: What to Do ? Fire on the ship while in port.

Thanks for the discussion. And remember I never said SJFD, I was speaking in a general term, I am sure they are very good and professional not my intention to single out any one party. Further I guess is it even relevant? what they do or don't do does not make it right to increase the amount of risk...

What to Do ? Fire on the ship while in port.

Good Day all, An interesting topic came up today so I thought I would throw it out for some discussion. What involvement should the ships crew have to fight a fire while the ship is docked in port? Should it be the same as while the vessel is at sea. At sea we risk our lives to fight fires to save o...

Re: Estimating for dummies

Still working on it, nothing new to report since my post from aug 30th. However we got a fire lit in Germany and got some senior MAN engineers flying to meet with us in 2 weeks, hopefully this will yield some progress. I still stand by my original findings that this is design issues but time will te...

Estimating for dummies

Switching gears from my usual rant on CR system issues, I would like to toss this out there for your comment. Have you ever noticed that some guys in the industry have a real talent for remembering numbers , figures , when it come to estimating costs. I am not one of those guys , I am back to the ol...

Re: Common Rail Engine 48/60 cr

Thanks to all for comments and input. I haven't replied in a while as I was going down so many different directions I would never live long enough to type it lol. Fuel samples are benchmarked at above average for Canadian supply HFO 380( according to Viswa Lab) Catfine levels between 15ppm and 19ppm...

MAN have recommend an additional 10 mic after the fuel module however through our own research we discovered that a vessel trading overseas with th...

Re: Scrubber-Irving Tanker

Thanks, I am of the same opinion as you with what I know today. From a ROI perspective considering the current spread between diesel and HFO is not so much it is difficult to justify kicking of a scrubber retrofit. Seems to be a little bit of chicken and the egg going on here... Fuel supplier want t...

Re: Scrubber-Irving Tanker

Is this Alfa Laval system currently in use? Through my research into scrubber systems while trying to launch a retrofit project I heard a rumor that the Irving Tankers had all kinds of issues with the scrubber plants and decide to switch to diesel. Just wondering if fact or fiction
Thanks
