Join Our Telegram (Seaman Community)

Welcome to the website where you can find answers for the Computer Based Test (CBT) also known as Crew Evaluation System (CES) on the subject «Electric Propulsion System». 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/CBT based on practical information and marine specialists experience.

CES & CBT 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.

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.

Current test contains Seagull CES questions on the subject «Electric Propulsion System». These questions can be used to test the competence of a specialist who is able to professionally perform his duties on ships with electric propulsion. The term “vessels with electric propulsion” refers to vessel in which one of the elements of the system for converting fuel energy into mechanical energy of rotation of the propeller shaft is an electric machine. One or more electric motors are connected to the propeller shaft directly or through a gearbox.

The topic “Electric Propulsion” includes theoretical and practical information on safety when working with electrical equipment. Knowledge of this information directly indicates the competence of the employee holding the relevant position on the ship, provides work with electric motors. Also, the ship’s worker must know how to manage them and protect them.

This page contains answers to Seagull CES CBT (Crew Evaluation System/Computer Based Test) test about Electric Propulsion System, 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.
