Modern ships depend on a plethora of machinery systems to traverse the oceans safely and efficiently. However these machinery systems don't operate and maintain themselves. In a new initiative - Engineroom Perspectives - IMarEST is seeking to tap into the collective insight of the world's marine engineers and utilise the expertise held within its membership in a combined effort to identify recurring problems and shortcomings of certain equipment types and inform discussions leading to possible solutions.
This Engineroom Perspectives survey is focussed on Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems (EGCS) and considers potential concerns regarding installation and commissioning, day-to-day operation and shore side support, and, training with respect to EGCS. Seafarers with experience with these systems are invited to share them in this survey to contribute to an analysis and report to support user needs. In sharing the results with end-users, other marine engineers and vessel owners/operators will be more prepared on what to expect during installation, operation and maintenance. They will be equipped with necessary knowledge to devise strategies to deal with common problems and minimise the chance of them occurring in the first place or, failing that, minimise the resultant disruption.
The quantitative and qualitative data gathered here will reviewed and analysed by subject-matter specialists within the IMarEST’s membership and Special Interest Groups. Feedback will be handled on a strictly anonymous basis for the review.
Personal data is only collected for the purposes of verifying input but no personal data will be shared with any members conducting the review or to any third parties. The IMarEST is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. In accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, the personal data collected in this form will be processed securely in order to provide you with the service(s) requested. To learn more about how the IMarEST collects, processes and protects personal information, or to contact us about data protection, please see our Privacy Notice (www.imarest.org/privacy).
