Lack of marine engineers threatens to put the life changing ministry of OM Ships on hold

We need marine engineering officers and other maintenance engineers to continue operating and maintaining the vessel says OM Ships.

The vessel is currently in dry dock in Subic Bay until early August and will be unable to sail after September without a longer-term chief engineer.

Short-term chief engineers have filled the role on a temporary basis over recent months, but more consistent leadership is needed to oversee the operation of vessel systems and maintenance work on machinery. Ideally, a chief engineer would serve on board for a year or more, but shorter-term appointments, with a minimum of three months, would also be considered, preferably on a rota system with other chief engineers.

The OM Ships leadership team is also committed to having four maintenance engineers with a ‘hands on’ approach to provide oversight in the ship’s engine room. Currently, two have committed to join and another two maintenance engineers are needed to meet the goal. Family accommodation is available for the chief engineer and could be made available for other engineering officers if required.

“The current upgrading and renewal of many engine room systems will enable a simpler and more reliable operation of the vessel,” said OM Ships Crewing Director Mark Dimond. “We need qualified personnel to bring the ‘Power Up Logos Hope’ project to completion and marine engineering officers and other maintenance engineers to continue operating and maintaining the vessel.”
