MaK 8M43C Container M11

The K-Sim Engine MaK Container M11 model is based on a medium speed EngineRoom configuration from a modern container feeder with one MaK 8M43C engineconnected to a controllable pitch propeller. The model has 1x8000kW main engineand 1x500kw bow thruster. The control and automation systems include sophisticated power management, pump control and propulsion control.

The main object for the simulator is to cover the operation and system understanding of the configuration one (1) medium speed main engine geared down and connected to a controllable pitch propeller including shaft generator, with electrical transmission to aswitch board. The electrical power plant includes, in addition to the shaft generator,2 diesel generators and one emergency generator. Control room operator panels aswell as bridge and steering panels are included. in addition to the graphical processmimics representing the engine room systems, a Walkthrough Virtual Engine Roomapplication is included. The VR application enable the students to walk around inthe engine room in a virtual world and operate the machinery systems locally

Training objectives

The K-Sim Engine MaK 8M43C Container M11 model is designed to be a valuabletool in the basic and advanced training of marine engineers. The training objectivesare to train junior engineers in basic engine room operations, senior engineers inemergency operations and trouble shooting, and to train senior and chief engineers in optimal operation, fuel economy and energy conservation. This is achieved bycontrolled training, leading to better understanding of the total plant operation, asa result of realistic simulation of a real engine room.

Compliant with industry requirements

Kongsberg Digital simulator models exceed requirements in the STCW convention, Regulation 1/12 and fulfill DNV GL’s standard DNVGL-ST-0033 for MaritimeSimulator Systems.
