The K-Sim Engine MAN B&W 5L90MC VLCC L11-V model simulates a very large crude carrier with a MAN B&W slow speed turbo charged diesel engine as propulsion unit modelled with fixed and controllable propeller. The main engine model respond dynamically to variations in operation and conditions of the ship model, and the ship model have mutual responses to the main engine model.

The model is based on real engine data that makes the dynamic behaviour of the simulator close to real engine response. The electrical plant includes 2 diesel generators, one turbo generator, one shaft generator/motor, and one 180 kW emergency generator. The steam plant includes a D-type steam boiler, exhaust boiler, 4 cargo turbines, ballast turbine and condensing and feed water systems. Control room operator station-, bridge- and steering panels are included.

Training objectives

The K-Sim Engine MAN B&W 5L90MC VLCC L11-V model is designed to be a valuable tool in the basic and advanced training of marine engineers. The training objectives are to train junior engineers in basic engine room operations, senior engineers in emergency operations and trouble shooting, and to train senior and chief engineers in optimal operation, fuel economy and energy conservation. This is achieved by controlled training, leading to better understanding of the total plant operation, as a result of realistic simulation of a real engine room.
