New Main Engine Damage report available

Main Engine Damage, the latest loss prevention report from The Swedish Club, sheds a light on an expensive category of damage that is all too frequent.

Statistically a vessel will suffer between one and two incidences of main engine damage during its life time. Considering the costly consequences for ship owners and their hull insurers, it is important to identify the main causes of this damage and examine how these can be prevented.

Peter Stålberg, Senior Technical Advisor explains: “Our research shows that bulkers and tankers are the best performers for claims cost in comparison with Club entry. Most of these vessels have slow speed engines. Conversely passenger vessels/ferries have the highest frequency of main engine claims – 0.066 claims per vessel and year. Often these vessels have multiple medium speed engine installations. The same is also true for Ro-ro vessels.

The publication also includes loss prevention advice from the major engine manufacturers, MAN Engines and Wärtsilä.
