Focus: Auxiliary engine damage

An investigation by The Swedish Club into auxiliary engine damage has revealed that the majority of all damage takes place immediately after maintenance work. The report also finds that container vessels have a significantly higher claims frequency.

The larger number of installed engines on container vessels partly explain their high claim rate. In addition, these engines have considerable output, leading to higher repair costs compared with other vessels.

The Auxiliary Engine Damage report from The Swedish Club has been created in response to the Club’s members’ concerns over damage to auxiliary engines – a significant segment of machinery claims, both in number and in cost.

By highlighting the causes of auxiliary engine damage we are striving to assist shipowners and crews in their safety and maintenance work.
