Rapid shut-off valves not reset led to engine stopping

Det här innehållet kommer från vår tidigare hemsida och kan därför se annorlunda ut.

The auxiliary engine on a small passenger ship stopped just before departure. The second engine was started and a short trial run was made without cargo or passengers. During the trial run the two aft main engines stopped and, shortly thereafter, the second auxiliary engine also stopped. The ship was turned in order to moor again, but immediately before docking the fore main engine also stopped. The reason was that the rapid shut-off valves had not been reset after a safety check. The engines were able to run for a short while on the fuel that remained in the supply lines, but then stopped.
