  • Engine Room Alarms - Need guidance and HELP

    Good day, I am a junior engineer and i want to ask what are the different type of alarms I should be aware of during my watchkeeping in engine room. And also during an alarm there are instances that you should not Shutdown or do something in a Machinery/equipment to prevent more damages. Can you please give me example of this? Thanks in Advance.

    There are 9 types of emergency alarms on ships: (1) general alarms, (2) fire alarms, (3) man overboard alarms, (4)abandon ship alarm, (5) navigation alarm, (6) machinery space alarm, (7) cargo space CO2 alarm, (8) machinery space CO2 alarm and (9) ship security alarm system. All of these alarms will give audio and visual warnings onboard the ship.
