Alarm and monitoring systems. Inland waterway ships

Alarm and monitoring sys­tems are intended to monitor and register automatically all the essential parameters of the installation and display any ab­normalities that have occurred. It saves time-consuming watch­keeping rounds, registers more information accurately, but is certainly no substitute for an engineer who, on his inspection round in the engine room, may find a small leak in a flange that can turn into a larger problem.

Inland waterway ships

The requirements for alarm and monitoring systems vary with the service of the vessel and associ­ated notation, from inland water­way service with manned engine room notation or coastal service, to unrestricted service with larger engine ratings and UMS notation.
