STCW Endorsement as Chief Engineer Officer on Vessels Powered by Main Propulsion Machinery of 750 kW/1,000 HP or More and Less Than 3,000 kW/4,000 HP Propulsion Power
I’m not sure what the KW power has to do with the HP of the mains when it comes to this figure. My training vessel has two 750 HP CATs. The gen sets are 5KW 271’s.
I get that they are referring to the HP of the engines, what is the electrical power in front of it mean? Are they saying your vessel had to have a minimum of both in your experience?
