Join Our Telegram (Seaman Community)

Welcome to the website where you can find answers for the CES test to the «Junior specialists on Reefer». This site will help you as a marine specialist improve your knowledge with the help of open information, where you can find questions as well as answers for them. CES based on practical information and marine specialists experience.

CES tests developed for evaluating seaman basic knowledge by Seagull Company (rebranded as «OTG»), is an evaluating online-tool, used for revealing any professional preparation needed in specific fields of knowledge, defined by STCW.

  • Version: 6.0.0.
  • Test type: STCW.
  • Duty: Junior Specialist.
  • Vessel type: Reefer.

CES tests have proven themselves as good tools for the selection and recruitment process, as well as advancing the level of knowledge of the current officers and crew. Ocean Technologies Group use various subjects for question creation, which includes:

  • Crowd and Crisis Management;
  • Integrated Navigation System (INS);
  • Ballast water management;
  • Handling and Stowage;
  • Vessel operation management and safety;
  • Marine engineering;
  • Maintenance and repair, etc.

Test for juniors includes theoretical and practical information about safety working with electrical equipment. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel. A sailor on a refrigerated cargo ship is responsible for maintaining and monitoring the refrigeration systems, ensuring that the required temperature conditions for transported goods are met. Additionally, they need to oversee the equipment’s condition and perform maintenance as necessary, as well as address any cooling system issues that may arise during the voyage. This role requires technical problem-solving skills and strict adherence to safety regulations and procedures.

This page contains answers to Seagull CES (Crew Evaluation System) test about Junior specialists on Reefer, and serve as a database of questions and answers, using which seafarer can prepare to exams for getting certificate of competence, or just to challenge yourself with knowledge in this theme.

Code: DUIE89 Which parameters of the reefer container you should check after loading?
Serial number, stowage position, set point, ventilation position, humidity set point, supply temperature, return temperature, active alarms, visual damages of refrigerated plant.
Serial number, set point, gas level in receiver, compressor current, supply voltage, evaporator temperature, superheat, suction temperature, discharge temperature.
Serial number, stowage position, set point.
Code: Rlli18 How to test dielectric gloves before work?
Before use, the gloves should be inspected, paying attention to the absence of mechanical damage and fill gloves with hot fresh water.
Dielectric gloves do not need to be tested before work, if there is a “test stamp” from manufacturer.
Before use, the gloves should be inspected, paying attention to the absence of mechanical damage, dirt and moisture, and also check for punctures by twisting the gloves towards the fingers.
Code: JQVR63 What is the reason between dry and reefer container?
The major difference between normal dry container and reefer container is that the temperature condition controlling system is available in reefer container.
Difference in types of cargo it loaded.
It is the same, just different names for containers in different countries.
Code: SHKX90 What is Reefer container used for?
Reefers are essential for worldwide trade of food.
Reefers are essential for worldwide trade of food. Storage of the wood.
Storage of food.
Code: ARPC01 What is the superheat in a refrigerated system?
This is the difference between the boiling point temperature of refrigerant in the evaporator coil and the actual temperature of the refrigerant gas as at leave the evaporator.
This is the compressor overheat temperature.
This is the difference between the supply and return temperatures.
Code: VAKL55 According to the requirements of the SOLAS 74 convention, Emergency Diesel Generator (EDG) must take full ratred load no more than:
45 sec.
35 sec.
50 sec.
Code: OIYQ43 What is a Reefer Container?
Container is a type of shipping container that remains its cargo at a regulated cool temperature.
Container for Cargo.

Code: JNZA59 What is the first action if you find a reefer container in not working condition?
Check main circuit breaker position (on/off) and the presence of power supply on each incoming phase with multimeter.
Make sure the serviceability of the main transformer.
Verify presence of “freon gas” in the system.
Call service engineer.
Code: TMVQ96 What is the correct stowage of the reefer on deck of container vessel?
Motor to forward.
Motor to alt.
Code: PRUC70 On a container vessel, what must be done as soon as reefer containers have been loaded?
It must be connected to the ship power supply and their setting temperature verified.
Stowage position must be reported to the duty officer.
Setting temperatures must be verified.
Code: ZXDA17 What is the purpose of the Oil in the refrigerated systems?
To lubricate the moving parts of the compressor.
