Transport Canada “Marine Safety” expectations are, that upon completion of the PPS Level 2 Course, the course participants will be able to demonstrate sound management and engineering practices to manage, monitor and organize operation of the Ships power plant as implemented onboard a vessel.
The Scenario could include various vessel operations such as:
To help students familiarize and practice with the above scenarios the following two SimLab exercises have been created which students can load and run on their workstations and based on the outcome of their operation make checklists and validate them in other exercises and later implemented them into real life situations
The more self paced exercises that the students practices on their own the better their understanding of the plant and its operational procedures would be.
The Briefing notes for SimLab #1
The Ship is a very large crude carrier (VLCC), fully loaded powered by a turbo charged slow speed Marine diesel engine (MAN B&W 5L90MC) with a fixed pitch propeller directly driving a single propeller
The Vessel is fully loaded and is “At sea” proceeding to the discharge port.
ME and OF Boiler is on HFO, while the Generators are on DO.
The Generators have been optimized for “At sea” passage as per Chief engineers standing orders
