Abstract

The paper analyzes the application possiblites of the Lloyd Register Provisional Rules for enhanced Availability of Engineering Systems for Propulsion and Steering and the R2-SA+ requirements of the american Bureau of Shipping, in the tanker engine-room design. The paper deals with the possible development of tanker engine room and defines the final solution of the tanker engine room design as the energetic center with the integrated functions of propulsion and cargo systems. From the IMO environmental protection regulations point of view, the final solution is not applicable at the present moment. Therefore the paper anaylyzes the design derived from the final solution. The suggested project has been analyzed from the failure mode point of view. The possibilitiy of new technology application in the tanker engine room design is shown. 1 Introduction The paper is bas
