Steam Propulsion Dual Fuel SP11

The K-Sim Engine Steam Propulsion Dual Fuel SP11 model simulates the steam propulsion plant of a typical modern, large LNG tanker machinery. The steam plant modelis based on an actual LNG tanker. Model performance and dynamic response is veryclose to that of the actual ship.

The simulation model has focus on systems that are unique to dual fuel steamplants: boilers, turbine, condensers, condensate system, fuel oil system, fuel gassystem. In addition to sophisticated propulsion control and boiler managementsystems, the model provides an understanding of how boil-off gas is used in order to keep safe and economic operations on-board.

Training objectives

The K-Sim Engine Steam Propulsion Dual Fuel SP11 model is designed to be a valuable tool in the basicand advanced training of marine steam 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.
