The cargo vessels operate in various parts of World Ocean far away from native shores. In case of emergency when some machinery fails the vessels call at foreign port for emergency repair. The planned repair is usually carried out at the same shipyard where the vessel has been built before. As soon as the hull works are completed the ship-owner sends their representatives to supervise installation machinery and equipment. The ship's engineers also take part in the repair process. They discuss the list of repairs with the shipyard's representatives, verify the scope of the work, supervise and check up the repair process. On completion the delivery trials are carried out, the protocol of delivery is made out and the ship is ready for service again.


ASWER THE QUESTIONS:1. What should the vessel do in case of emergency? 2. Where is planned repair usually carried out? 3. What is the duty of ship-owner representatives? 3. Do ship’s engineers take part in the repair process? 4. What actions do they perform? 5. When is the ship ready for service again?

Mr.Wilson: How do you do gentlemen! My name is Mr. Wilson. I am the manager of ship repairing department and I will be responsible for your ship’s repair. Can you introduce your colleagues, please?
Chief Engineer: How do you do Mr. Wilson! Our engine-room staff is very glad to meet you. I am the Chief Engineer; here is our 2nd engineer and electrical engineer. Our 3rd engineer is out at the moment but he will be back soon.

Mr.Wilson:Do all of them understand English, because I am sorry to say I can’t speak Russian at all.

Chief Engineer:Don’t worry; I can speak English quite well. As to my colleagues they understand English enough to communicate without problems during their work but they are too shy to speak.

Mr.Wilson:So, we have the list of repair which consists of general parts concerning the repair of Main Engine, auxiliary engine, steam boilers, deck machinery and hull. We have some preliminary information about future repair but I’d like to correct the volume of repair.

Chief Engineer:The volume of repair has somewhat changed. Here you can see the additional list of repair. Besides the repair known to you it’s necessary to put the ship in the dock and to replace aft bulwark.

Mr.Wilson:We can do this extra work. Floating dock #2 will be available in 5 or 7 days and your ship will be docked. What else?

Chief Engineer:We need to replace the outboard fittings and replace the outboard fittings and replace the blade of CPP. We damaged it during fishing in Labrador area. There is too much floating ice there as you know. As to the bulwark we damaged it when mooring in the open sea. The repair isn’t too complicated but you must do a low of welding.

Mr.Wilson:I’ve looked through the list of spare parts. Why is there so much zinc here in the list?

Chief Engineer:There are zinc protectors to replace the old ones all over the hull. Moreover ballast duct and boottop must be cleaned by sand blast and painted.

Mr.Wilson:I must see damages myself. Tomorrow the representative of our company will come on board and you’ll have an opportunity to discuss everything in details.
