  • Insurance companies, classification bureaus, surveyors
  • Shipping industry suppliers, suppliers of engine parts, fuel and lubricating oil

When compiling this book, a practical approach was chosen using ample authentic graphic material with detailed explanations allowing the reader to gather pertinent information without laboriously going through the main text. Important subjects: common-rail systems, emissions, materials, casting and forging of parts, vibrations, propellers, fuel problems, dual-fuel engines, reconditioning, regulations for testing diesel engines.

Leading companies and institutes have contributed to the realisation of this book by providing information, photographs and interviews. Ninety per cent of the more than 2000 pictures are in colour.
