    As far as affected by the absorber system installed ...... local arrangement.

    Hello once again!

    As far as affected by the absorber system installed on the main deck, the exhaust pipe and other components in the engine room some existing pipes, cable ways, lighting etc. will have to be re-arranged by the contractor as per final local arrangement.

    Could someone help me to decode this uneasy sentence?

    I will make an attempt at solving it myself.

    As far as the exhaust pipe and other components in the engine room are concerned which are affected by the absorber system installed on the main deck, some existing pipes, cable ways, lighting etc. will have to be re-arranged by the contractor as per final local arrangement.

    Am I on the right path?

    Does "affected" mean "destroyed or something like that"?

    Your rearrangement of the sentence is excellent. The murky is now made clear.

    The components in the engine room are "affected" by the absorber system insofar as the absorber system may exert some effect on their functioning.
