In ALL emergencies, Captain/Chief Eng. will take control of situations as soon as possible – but initiative must be taken by other individuals where immediate action is required.
|Sounding the alarm must be loud and clear – use of the General alarm and PA System is encouraged.|
|Any available spare person should be nominated as writer as soon as possible to prompt actions from this checklist and record events as they happen.|
In the event of a Bridge Control failure the Main Engine Alarm System will call the Duty Engineer. But OOW to check that alarm sounds when in UMS mode.
It will be necessary to pass control to the Engine Control Room.
The Engine will not stop, it will continue at the revs last requested – I.E. if vessel is Full Away on 76 RPM the engine will maintain those revs.
The only change to the Bridge OOW is that he/she no longer has direct control of the engine – I.E. telegraph reverts to request mode.
In the event of a Telegraph failure, either on its own or combined with a Bridge Control failure; control of the Engine will be passed to the ER Control Room but now telephones or Radios will have to be used to pass engine movements. As the telegraph is an integral part of the control loop most probably manoeuvring will require transferring to the local emergency control station.
