Industry collaborates to produce engine failure guidance

A global insurer and classification society have joined together to issue blackout and engine failure guidance to operators.

The booklet is a result of a joint project between the London P&I Club and Bureau Veritas in conjunction with its casualty and salvage subsidiary TMC Marine.

“The club has seen an increase in the number of machinery failure-related cases in recent years. In most cases, it is the timing and location of the incident which dictates the severity of the claim,” said Carl Durow, loss prevention manager, London P&I Club.

“This publication is aimed at raising awareness of the necessary good practices and post-incident investigation activities which in combination can result in significantly reducing the risk of major claims.”

This new publication, the second in a series on loss prevention subjects, focuses on marine engineering issues and procedures related to the prevention of loss of propulsion.

Its purpose is to provide general guidance and practical advice to marine engineers and ship owners on blackout and main engine failures, the risks associated with loss of propulsion and the precautions that can be taken to limit and prevent them.

An electronic copy of the guide can be obtained from London P&I Club
