    MCA Tyne Dock III/1 Mr. Groak - 25/06/2013 Result: Pass
    1 hour 10 mins
    1) Bridge gives you 1 hour notice arrival into port, what do you do?
    - Went round all the steps I would do before he went back to each step and asked further questions
    2) How would you start up a generator? (He wanted to know all the checks that were done locally and what you would do in preparation to start it)
    3) Effects of blowing through the engine
    4) Especially on two strokes, why do we turn over on the turning gear and blow through?
    5) When the steering gear is engaged, what are you checking for?
    6) Okay, so the generator is up and running, how was it synchronised on your vessel?
    7) How to sync manually? What does the synchroscope compare?
    8) What is the importance of load sharing?
    9) If one generator was taking most of the load and the other was taking minimal load what would the effects be?
    10) He explained, when a new motor starts the loaded generator would try and pick up the new load. What would happen to the other generator? (Begin to motor)
    11) Explain motoring and what would happen?
    12) What other trips do you find on the switch board? Explain preferential tripping.
    13) Fresh water generator regulations
    14) What can cause the salinity levels to rise?
    15) Aside from the distance away from shore, why else should the FW generator be shut off (Insufficient jacket water temp)
    16) Air compressor checks
    17) You notice the air compressor is running continuously, even though the air receivers are full. Why? (I talked about tracing the system for leakages etc, settled on blow past into the crank case)
    18) What would you notice if there was blow past in the compressor crankcase?
    19) What else? (oily mist)
    20) What other air pressures did you have on your ship? How were these pressures created if compressor output was 30bar?
    21) Aside from 30 bar starting air, were other air pressures used on the main engine and what for?
    22) What type of sewage plant did your ship have? Describe to me how it works.
    23) What would be the dangers if the air compressors stopped working?
    24) What checks do you make on the purifier?
    25) You notice the sludge tank level is high but it had a low level when you last checked, what could have happened? (purifier lost its seal)
    26) Why could it have lost its seal, what would happen? (back pressure, trip/alarm)
    27) Could be bad bunker fuel, what could you do? (change fuel oil tanks, drain off water regularly, inform chief engineer)
    28) When transferring sludge from one tank to the other, what would you do? (ORB)
    29) How else could water get in the fuel? (broken heating coil in tank)
    30) Other than excess water in the fuel, what else would indicate a leak?
    31) What safety devices and alarms on a boiler?
    32) High level water in a boiler is just as serious as low level, why? (I said water carry over into steam lines, water hammer?)
    33) What is water hammer and how is it caused?
    34) Start up the auxiliary boiler from cold
    35) What is purging and why is it important?
    36) What type of pump was your bilge pump?
    37) Why a positive displacement pump? Could you run this with the discharge closed?
    38) What are the regulations surrounding bilge water?
    39) What type of pump is your cooling water pump? (centrifugal) Why?
    40) You notice that the discharge pressure gauge is fluctuating, why? (I gave lots of different suggestions)
    41) You involve the electrician, you say it’s the motor, he says it could be the pump. How would you quickly find out which part is faulty? (detach coupling between motor and pump – run motor)
    42) What effect does short circuits and earth faults have on motors?
    43) Okay, say the problem is with the motor. How would you test it? (Whole isolation procedure, draws a junction box to demonstrate continuity and insulation tests)
    44) The oiler has taken his daily soundings and noticed that a fuel oil storage tank is full, but the control room screen is showing the tank as empty. What are your actions?
    45) Okay, so the chief has decided you need to check the level sensors in the tank. Run me through how you would do this. (Drain tank to a different fuel tank, whole entry to enclosed space procedure)
    46) What else would you need to isolate before entry? (Heating coils, suction valves and transfer pumps etc.)
    47) What else? (Notify crew that work is going on in the tank)

    Okay, that will do, you’ve passed.
    Maybe I will never be
    All the things that I want to be

    Now's the time to find out why
