Leaking cooling water pump leads to – DP undesired event

 

Comments from the report:

A leaking seal was observed on the Port ME cooling water pump; it was replaced, and the engine tested prior to returning to operations.

Considerations of the IMCA Marine DP Committee from the above event:

  • The event report did not detail the application of any decision support tools such as an ASOG, however the actions taken demonstrated a good example of safe practice during DP operations.
