Can a two stroke M/E start without auxiliary blowers?
M/E starting is possible from Engine Control Room (ECR) or Local Control (LOP) provided that at least one auxiliary blower is running.
It`s not possible to start the M/E with no auxiliary blowers running, for safety reasons i.e. risk of explosion or scavenging air fire due to lack of enough fresh air for combustion with fuel injection.
In case of real emergency, the software that blocks the M/E starting can be by-passed by jumping/by-passing the run signal of the auxiliary blowers.
However, it is not recommended!
