STCW Competence Knowledge, Understanding, and Proficiency

Carry out a watch routine appropriate to the duties of a rating forming part of an engine-room watch.

RFPEW-A1.2 Engine-room watchkeeping procedures

Condition Behavior Standard

On a gas turbine vessel, on a simulator, or in a laboratory,

the candidate monitors the electrical generating plant.

Note 4

Not performing this task will limit the candidate’s endorsement to motor vessels and/or steam vessels.

The candidate:

  1. Checks plant’s operational status;
  2. Checks gas turbine generator rpm;
  3. Checks gas turbine generator frequency;
  4. Checks gas turbine generator output voltage;
  5. Checks gas turbine generator output amperage;
  6. Checks gas turbine generator kilowatt output;
  7. Checks gas turbine generator kilovolt-amp reactive output or power factor, as appropriate;
  8. Checks gas turbine generator bearings’ temperature and oil flow;
  9. Checks governor, turbine/reduction gear lube-oil sump levels;
  10. Checks the physical condition of pipes, tubing, and hoses for wear or leaks;
  11. Observes gas turbine lube-oil and cooling-water temperatures and pressures;
  12. Observes gas turbine air intake and exhaust temperatures and pressures, including air-intake filter pressure drop, as appropriate;
  13. Checks start air pressure
  14. Reads fuel-oil meter and day-tank levels;
  15. Checks for any unusual conditions or noises;
  16. Notifies the watch engineer of any unusual or unsafe conditions; and
  17. Takes proper action to prevent safety and pollution violations.
