Due to the impossibility of periodically starting the engine during the period of rest (winter), such engines need to be preserved to ensure lubrication and protect vital parts from the effects of low temperatures.
BOAT BATTERY CHECK AND CHARGE
Although at rest, batteries lose their capacity faster at low temperatures. Regular charging and inspection will prevent their self-discharge to the extent of damage and also extend the service life.
REGULAR BILGE INSPECTIONS
By regularly inspecting the bilge, it is possible to establish the occurrence of water penetration in a timely manner and thus prevent the destruction of equipment and sinking of the ship.
OPENING AND CLOSING UNDERWATER VALVES
Prolonged standing of the valve in one position favors the accumulation of limescale and leads to blockage of the valve. In case of water penetration, it will not be possible to close such a valve. By periodically opening and closing the valve, limescale build-up and valve blockage are prevented
STARTING THE ENGINE / GENERATOR ONCE A MONTH
Regular starting of the engine / generator in ships that are idle for a long time, significantly helps to maintain the lubrication of all vital parts and reduces the impact of moisture / condensate.
