The are continuing to pray for marine engineers who have a proven competence in machinery maintenance and repair:
1) We need a permanent Chief Engineer to join us as soon as possible, or two or three who would be ready to regularly rotate.
2) We are still in need of an additional 1st or 2nd Engineer (STCW Reg III/2) with experience to take responsibility as soon as possible for maintenance of the main engines, as well as another skilled maintenance engineer.
The vessel features a mix of older and newer equipment and machinery with many systems now upgraded or replaced.
Logos Hope was built in 1973 as a ferry and underwent major renovations between 2004 and 2009 to transform it into a passenger ship.
The 9 deck vessel is equipped with 4 main engines producing a total of 11,768 kW and three generators for power supply, auxiliary equipment and air-conditioning.
The upgrades and changes that are being carried out at this time to many of the engine room and piping systems will enable the vessel to operate with greater efficiency and reliability, and will also greatly simplify the overall operation of the vessel’s engine room.
See this page for more detailed specifications.
