The K-Sim Engine MaK 8M32C Trawler M11 model simulates a stern trawler with asingle installation MaK 8M32C medium speed (four stroke) diesel engine connectedto CP propeller. The main engine model respond dynamically to variations in operation and conditions of the ship model and the ship model have mutual responsesto the main engine model.

The electrical power plant includes two diesel generators and one shaft generator.The steam plant includes oil fired boiler and auxiliary boiler. Control room operatorstation and panels as well as bridge and steering panels are included. The trawlerhas a refrigeration system with two compartments.

Training objectives

The K-Sim Engine MaK 8M32C Trawler M11 model is designed to be a valuable toolin the basic and advanced training of marine engineers. The training objectives areto train junior engineers in basic engine room operations, senior engineers in emergency operations and trouble shooting, and to train senior and chief engineersin 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.
