Marine Machinery

Marine machinery includes all machinery installed on waterborne craft such as engines, transmissions, shafting, propulsors, generators, motors, pumps, compressors, blowers, eductors, boilers and other heat exchangers, winches, cranes, steering gear, and associated piping, tanks, wiring, and controls, used for propulsion, for ship services, and for cargo, trade, or mission services. Marine machinery needs to maintain higher standards of reliability and greater demands for weight and volume reduction and access for maintenance. Marine machinery must be capable of withstanding the marine environment, such as high humidity, sea-water corrosion, vibration, sea motions and shock. Marine machinery in modern merchant ships operates automatically.
