Fuel oil System:
Fuel oil tanks are integral with the hull, . All tanks are fitted with a sounding tubes or sight glasses and a level indicator connected to the Boning tank monitoring system.
The fuel oil system is comprised of a total 17000 gals in (6) tanks, two (2) main tanks, two (3) forward tanks , and one (1) day tank. The day tank holds 1000 gallons.
ALFA LAVAL model MIB 303 is installed in the system, it can polish the fuel from any tank and send it to any tank. The system can pull from the two side tanks into the day tank which can over flow back to the two side tanks creating a continuous clean fuel loop which can be operated 24 hours a day. The day tank will run the vessel for 24 hours.
There are 4 ways of transferring fuel around the vessel.
A manual pump.
A high speed AC fuel transfer pump that can transfer fuel between all of the tanks.
A 24 vt Fuel transfer pump that can transfer fuel between all of the tanks
The Alfa Laval system which can transfer fuel between all tanks
A digital flow meter totalizer is installed in the transfer line.
Fuel filters for the main engines are conveniently located under the work bench with drip tray piped to waste oil tank. Both main engines are fitted with duplex RACOR filters. The generators have single filters
Each engine has RACOR fuel filter, Mod. 75900MAX30
Each generator has RACOR Mod. 900MA30 single unit.
Drip trays are provided for all pumps, drains and fuel filters.
Lube Oil system:
Two (2) storage tanks, one for clean lube oil, the other for waste oil. Each tank is 120 gallons
(2) two sea chests in the engine room using 8” pipe, combined service plus a 30% overage for downstream piping losses. A Removable filter screen is located in the sea strainers pipes. The tops of the pipes are above water line for easy filter removal. The sea chests are fitted with blow down valves from the compressed are system. Each pipe can be isolated and cleaned while the vessel is under operation. The bottom grates can be removed in the water to clean the system from the bottom if needed.
The seawater is supplied to the system via the crossover pipe that is equipped with shut-off valves. The cross over pipe is of sufficient diameter to supply adequate water flow at full usage, with only one suction open. The cross over pipe and all raw water feed pipes are CiNi.
The sea chest cross over pipe is fitted with a fresh water connection in order to allow filling of the seawater piping arrangement while dry-docked. There are spare values installed in the cross over pipe.
Sea chests to have external grills which are to be the removable type to allow cleaning by a diver.
Engine room ventilation:
Engine room has two fans, one supply and one exhaust. Fans have Weg variable speed controls and are separately switched. The system intake and exhausts are from the pilothouse side decks via a demister system.
Fresh water system:
There are two pressure pumps on fresh water system piped in parallel with automatic pressure switches to control them, set at slightly different pressures. A large volume Pressure tank is installed downstream of the pumps. The pressure pumps are Head Hunter.
The hot water system is branched off the fresh water main line and consist of 2 50 Gallons electric hot water heaters. There is a circulating pump integrated into the system
Two FCI 1800 GPD water makers with auto flush
Black water System:
Head Hunter toilet system
Hamman USCG certified Type II MSD
Black water tank:
The tank is fitted with one (1) diaphragm pump actuated by a high and low level switches which also actuate an indicator lights and an audio alarm, (no automatic pump out).
Gray Water system:
The tank has a diaphragm pump of the same model and make of the Black water pump and is fitted with two (2) level switches (high and low) to control the sump pump. Operation to be automatic, with an override switch to permit manual operation. The gray water pump discharge directly overboard below the waterline,
The gray and black water pumps are integrated to back up each other.
Sinks and showers have individual water traps and drain to the gray water tanks. Air conditioning condensate and refrigerator condensate pans from chill and freeze boxes drain to the gray water tank, through a common drain pipe with appropriate water traps.
Compressor air system:
The air Pro-Puma air compressor handles the Quad air horns with auto fog system and has outlets located in the engine room and on the boat deck.
FIRE, BILGE AND ANCHOR WASH
The bilge system include two large bilge pumps and one (1) diesel driven pump located in the lazerette one of the (1) 230 VAC electric pump located in the E/R, is connected to the bilge manifold. In addition, there will be seven
(7) submersible pumps, one in each compartment.
The submersible pumps discharge directly overboard through vented loops high under the DWL and have float switches for automatic operation and manual override switches. The engine room submersible pump is not be automatic.
All bilge suctions are connected to the bilge manifold, located in the engine room. All suctions have strainer boxes and check valves, that are easily accessible.
The fire main is pressurized by the electric bilge/fire main pump, located in the E/R, which then draws from the main sea chest in the E/R. There shall also be a crossover pipe from the pump to the E/R bilge manifold.
The fire main runs outside the engine room and feeds the three (3) fire stations located throughout the vessel and the forward located anchor wash. The fire stations are located as follows
Forward locker under Portuguese bridge
Main deck portside at galley entrance door
Engine room entrance
The Anchor wash has four (4) nozzles in the anchor hawses and a deck connection at the foredeck forward locker. Each anchor wash outlet shall have separate valves to regulate the flow.
All bilges are fitted with low and high level alarms and connected to a monitoring panel located in the wheelhouse, which includes audio and visual alarms. The engine room has repeaters for high and low bilge alarms.
