Default More EN rating info stuff...

Engineman (EN)

Enginemen are responsible for internal diesel and gasoline engines. They also maintain refrigeration, air-conditioning, distilling plant engines and compressors.

Enginemen (ENs)operate, service and repair internal combustion
engines used to power some of the Navy's ships and most of the
Navy's small craft. Most enginemen work with diesel engines.
Enginemen also operate and maintain electrohydraulic controllable
pitch propeller systems and steering engines, refrigeration and air
conditioning systems, air compressors, desalinization plants and
small auxiliary boilers. Enginemen perform their duties in surface

The duties performed by ENs include:
  • aligning fuel, water and air piping systems and controlling operation of diesel engines used for ship and small craft propulsion, and to generate electrical power;
  • cleaning, lubricating, adjusting, testing and performing other preventive maintenance on diesel engines, reduction gears, air compressors, hydraulic or pneumatic clutches, steering engines and
    controllable pitch propeller systems;
  • operating and maintaining desalinization plants used to make fresh water from sea water;
  • operating and servicing refrigeration plants and air conditioning systems;
  • repairing or replacing valves, pumps, compressors, heat exchangers and control devices used with diesel engines and gas turbines; making entries into and analyze machinery operating
    records and reports.
Working Environment
Enginemen work in engine rooms or shops which, at times, may be warm and noisy. They may also work outdoors aboard small craft. The work performed is sometimes physical. Although enginemen often work
closely with others, they may also be required to work alone with
limited supervision.
