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 at sea, on a simulator, or in a laboratory,

the candidate monitors a main gas- turbine engine propulsion unit.

Note 4

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

The candidate:

  1. Monitors the main lube-oil and cooling water temperatures entering and leaving the main lube-oil cooler;
  2. Monitors the main lube-oil sump tank level
  3. Monitors the main and scavenging lubricating oil pump suction and discharge pressures, the lube-oil supply and scavenging header pressures and temperatures and any applicable filter or strainer pressure drops;
  4. Monitors fuel oil manifold pressure and temperature, and any applicable strainer and filter pressure drops;
  5. Monitors start air pressure;
  6. Monitors compressor inlet and discharge pressures and temperatures;
  7. Monitors power turbine gas inlet and outlet pressure and temperature;
  8. Monitors gas generator and power turbine speed;
  9. Checks gas turbine vibration indicator;
  10. Monitors gas turbine enclosure cooling air outlet temperature;
  11. Monitors reduction gear lube oil sump levels, lube oil temperatures and pressures, and lube oil filter and strainer pressure drops as applicable;
  12. Monitors controllable pitch propeller oil sump levels, pitch oil temperatures and pressures, and pitch oil filter and strainer pressure drops as applicable; and
  13. Notifies the watch engineer of any unusual or unsafe conditions, unusual sounds, or vibrations; and
  14. Takes proper action to prevent safety and pollution violations.
