IMarEST is The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology; the international professional body and learned society for all marine professionals. IMarEST is the first Institute to bring together marine engineers, scientists and technologists into one international multi-disciplinary professional body.
This book is intended to be a reference guide for those engineers dealing with the design and operation of ship electric energy systems. Modern ships tend to be more and more electrified, hence their electric energy system is of utmost importance, especially considering its predominant role in total efficiency, emissions, and fuel consumption.
These notes on the Stability of Small Vessels do not give a definitive study of the subject but have been written to explain, for the layman, the parts of the subject that are covered in the MCA’s Small Vessel Safety Codes.
This book provides a methodical approach to the appraisal of ships within their own Class and within their trade using statistical and historical data as working tools but, most importantly, recognising the intended use of the valuation.

Oceans of Power – 125 Years of Marine Engineering Milestones written by John Barnes, the former editor and publisher of Marine Engineers Review (MER), tells the story of marine engineering over the last two centuries from the coming of steam to the nuclear age and beyond.
Are microbes the invisible enemy? Some are benefical while others can be harmful to human health and damage goods. Unfortunately for the marine and offshore industries most of the microbes encountered fall into the harmful category and the problems they can cause are exacerbated by the marine envrionment.
