Dennis Hall had long experience with the marine industry, with initial training in shipbuilding followed by practical experience in the Merchant Navy as an Electrical Officer. This was followed by design and inspection work for large power industrial electrical systems around the world. Further experience and knowledge was acquired in the Royal Navy where he was introduced to the requirements and effective delivery methods for the training of engineering personnel. At South Tyneside College, as a lecturer, manager and Head of Electrical Power Systems, he examined many ship types and visited many marine colleges in Europe, USA and Japan.

Dennis was driven to meet the training and education needs of the marine industry and this book has, for many years, been the mainstay. The technical editors of Witherby Publishing Group have been careful to ensure that the straightforward and informative style of Dennis’ book has been maintained, while bringing in additional material that updates and expands the subject matter.
