Marine survey reports frequently contain engineering terminology, which can often be unfamiliar to the non engineers in the wider spectrum of the shipping industry.

 

In an attempt to bridge this gap, Braemar (Incorporating the Salvage Association) has released the second edition of its Guide to Hull & Machinery, a key reference book covering some of the common terminology used for ships, their engines, and ship’s related operation, which is often encountered in survey reports. The second edition includes explanations on gross and net register tonnages, subdivision and load line, deck mooring fittings and lifting appliances, while some useful guide formulas are included on selection of wires and synthetic ropes.


In the machinery section, data can be found on gear boxes, fuel and lube oil systems, purifiers and transmission systems, while the sheer scale of marine engines in comparison to a human body can now be appreciated in the section of typical propulsion engines. Dino Levantis, Business Director for the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe region of Braemar (Incorporating the Salvage Association), is the lead author of the publication.
“The intention has been to keep it simple,” he explained.


The guide is available in hard copy or pdf and is free of charge to those working in marine claims and insurance. For further information or a copy of the guide please contact Charlotte Ward, Head of Marketing and Client Relations at Braemar (Incorporating the Salvage Association) at charlotte.ward@braemar.com
