Under MARPOL Annex VI requirements what is the Record Book of Engine Parameters?
25 Jun '17, 10:31
The Record Book of Engine Parameters is a document for recording all parameter changes, including components and engine settings that may influence NOx emissions.
This is an essential document for surveys and inspections because it contains a record of adjustments to the engine. In some cases, a survey will consist simply of examining the Record Book to ensure that no changes have been made to the engine that might affect NOx emissions.
Chief Engineer must make sure the Record Book is always accurate. If the settings on the engine do not match those in the record book, an engine survey may include a more time-consuming investigation and, potentially, onboard measurement of NOx emissions.
