Venue: Lloyd's Maritime Academy, London, UK
This two-day seminar is an opportunity to understand the causes of marine machinery failures, from design, through the building or construction, to the installation and operation. Machinery breakdown can be expensive, causing delays and ultimately court disputes. Understanding the causes, how to monitor for changes in condition or impending incidents and the methods of reducing such incidents is a critical skill for the marine engineer or manager.
The course is intended for superintendents, ship managers and mechanical engineers who have basic engineering knowledge but need to further develop their understanding of condition monitoring and maintenance and how problems are overcome or eradicated.
