It gives engineering cadets, marine engineers, ship operators and managers insights into currently available engines and auxiliary equipment and trends for the future. This new edition introduces new engine models that will be most commonly installed in ships over the next decade, as well as the latest legislation and pollutant emissions procedures. Since publication of the last edition in 2009, a number of emission control areas (ECAs) have been established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in which exhaust emissions are subject to even more stringent controls. In addition, there are now rules that affect new ships and their emission of CO2 measured as a product of cargo carried.

Key Features

  • Provides the latest emission control technologies, such as SCR and water scrubbers
  • Contains complete updates of legislation and pollutant emission procedures
  • Includes the latest emission control technologies and expands upon remote monitoring and control of engines
