Major developments in two-stroke and four-stroke engine designs for propulsion and auxiliary power drives in the 5 years since the publication of the eighth edition of Pounder’s Marine Diesel Engines call for another update.
This ninth edition reflects the generic and specific advances made by marine engine designers and specialists in support technologies-notably turbocharging, fuel treatment, emissions reduction and automation systems-which are driven by: ship designer demands for more compactness and lower weight; ship-owner demands for higher reliability, serviceability and overall operational economy; and shipbuilder demands for lower costs and easier installation procedures.
A historical perspective logs the nautical milestones over the first century of marine diesel technology, which closed with the emergence of electronically controlled low-speed designs paving the path for future so-called "Intelligent Engines". Development progress with these designs and operating experience with the escalating number in service are reported in this new edition.
Since the last edition, increasing interest in dual-fuel (DF) and gas engines for marine and offshore industry applications is reflected in an expanded chapter.
The specification of DF medium-speed diesel machinery for LNG carrier newbuilding projects in 2002 marked the ousting of steam turbine propulsion from its last bastion in commercial shipping. A growing number of these DF-electric installations are now entering service, alongside direct-coupled low-speed engine-powered LNG carriers equipped with boil-off gas reliquefaction plant.
Controls on exhaust gas emissions-particularly nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides and smoke-continue to tighten regionally and internationally, dictating further responses from engine designers exploiting common rail fuel systems, emulsified fuel, direct water injection and charge air humidification. These and other solutions, including selective catalytic reduction and exhaust gas recirculation systems, are detailed in an extended chapter. The traditional core of this book-reviews of the current programmes of the leading low-, medium- and high-speed engine designers-has been thoroughly updated.
Finally, the author hopes that this edition, like its predecessors, will continue to provide a useful reference for marine engineers ashore and at sea, enginebuilders and ship operators.

Exactly which ship was the first to be powered by a diesel engine is a matter of some debate. Most reference works point to the 7400 dwt Selandia of 1912, but four-stroke diesels had been fitted to many more vessels before the Selandia was built. Both France and the UK had diesel-powered submarines in operation and the Russian navy also had some diesel-powered craft.
