The ship was a 1,45,000 dwt Crude Carrier powered by a Man B&W main engine, enroute to Discharge Port.
We observed main engine unit # 3 not firing. The fuel valves were renewed and engine tried out, but without any response.
The problem was solved by changing the fuel pump plunger-barrel assembly.
The old barrel as found to have a crack; hence unserviceable.
