Marine and marine electrical engineers are provided textbooks that are not industry specific and regulations, codes, and standards that are vague and difficult to translate to a real project. Ship and Mobile Offshore Unit Automation: A Practical Guide gives the engineer a much-needed reference to not only have all the relevant standards and codes needed in one location, but also provides many practical case studies on how to use that standard on actual projects and plans. Packed with the critical procedures through each phase of the project, the reference also gives an outlook to cover trends of development for control and monitoring systems including usage of artificial intelligence in software development and prospects for use of autonomous vessels. Rounding out with a glossary and introductory chapter specific to the new marine engineer just starting, Ship and Mobile Offshore Unit Automation: A Practical Guide delivers a source of valuable information to help offshore engineers be better prepared to design today?s offshore unit control systems safely and efficiently.

  • Understand worldwide offshore unit regulations necessary for monitoring systems and automation installation including ISO, IMO, SOLAS, ABS, DNV, API, and NORSOK
  • Learn from real-world examples provided that apply the standard
  • Design and procure control and monitoring systems specific to the offshore industry

Henryk Peplinski has more than 40 years’ experience in electrical and control systems engineering, covering conceptual design, basic and detailed design, and systems commissioning. His experience began in European shipyards designing and constructing various types of vessels, followed by experience working in classification societies with plan approval and surveys of electrical and control systems. For nearly ten years he worked as a superintendent engineer at Prosafe Offshore Ltd, and he has gained experience in the offshore industry on the design and modification of diesel electric semi-submersible units. Henryk has also worked for Seatec UK Ltd as a Superintendent Engineer and Planning Manager in seismic vessel conversion and worked for C&M Marine Services Ltd as a project superintendent engineer. Henryk has served on working groups of the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) developing new IEC Standards. He is currently an Independent Consultant for electrical and control engineering systems for ships, offshore units, and hybrid electrical vessels. He earned a bachelor of science in electrical and control engineering, automation, and measurements from Gdansk University of Technology, lead auditor for ISO 9001 systems from the British Standard Institution, IMO ISPS code from Northeast Maritime Institution, IMO IMS code from the Polish Register of Shipping, and technician certificate in electrical power engineering.
