On the Mos Way Network – Module #5 – Propulsion and power generation training of LNG driven vessel

Tag Cloud

lng modulo 5Overview LNG fueled / powered vessels are the youngest generation of ships and evolving as the research and development is moving ahead in the field of use of LNG as fuel in marine engines and boilers. This module aims trainees at the introduction level to the particular operational and engineering theories and practical challenges concerning the design and operation (including maintenance) of the energy production for power / propulsion and   auxiliary systems installed onboard ships using LNG as sole or dual fuel. This module aims trainees at the introduction to the particular challenges concerning the design and operation (including maintenance) of the energy production and auxiliary systems installed onboard LNG fuelled and carrying ships.

Objective The objective of module five is to give learners the basic knowledge and understanding of Marine propulsion and power generation and distribution systems used at sea. The objective also includes understanding the engineering systems used on different plant systems and technologies used on board. 

Contents This module is covering the engineering aspects of LNG transportation and management at sea particularly propulsion and power generation plant, use of LNG as fuel management of Boil off Gases, handling of gases gasification, vaporization and re-liquefaction. The course will also cover the environmental aspect of consumption of various fuels.  After attending this course learner should be able to:

  1. Understand the basic theory of two stroke and four stroke marine engines.
  2. Understand the combustion system of various fuels
  3. Understand the role of Marine / Cargo Engineer onboard gas and MDO fueled ship and LNG carrying ship.
  4. Demonstrate the ability to understand the Marine boiler system using gas and turbine system for propulsion and power generation
  5. Understand the basic principles of compressors
  6. Demonstrate the ability to understand power management
  7. Understand the Management of Boil off gases including re-liquefaction and combustion for power generation
  8. Understand environmental benefits of LNG as marine fuel
  9. Understand basic principles of  various machinery used in engine and deck compressor room
  10. Understand the functional, operational and safety  requirements for a marine high voltage system
