Diesel Engines for ship propulsion and power plants 2nd Edition


This second edition of a two-part book on diesel engines is intended for all who work with diesel engines for maritime propulsion and power generation:

  • Maritime training institutes and maritime universities
  • Maintenance and reconditioning companies
  • Shipping companies deep-sea, inland, towage, dredging and heavy-load cargo
  • Insurance companies, classification bureaus, surveyors
  • Shipping industry suppliers, suppliers of engine parts, fuel and lubricating oil
  • Engine manufacturers and dealers
  • Power Plants

When compiling this book, a practical approach was chosen using ample authentic graphic material with detailed explanations allowing the reader to gather pertinent information without laboriously going through the main text. Important subjects: common-rail systems, emissions, materials, casting and forging of parts, vibrations, propellers, fuel problems, dual-fuel engines, reconditioning, regulations for testing diesel engines.

Leading companies and institutes have contributed to the realisation of this book by providing information, photographs and interviews. Ninety per cent of the more than 2000 pictures are in colour.

Both volumes consist of 568 pages each.
