NEW COURSES AT ISN-TC

1. MAN ME ENGINE OPERATION.

A fully portable ME engine simulator made by the Research and Development department of MAN B&W Diesel is now in ISNTC since 19-February 2007. This equipment is very useful in instructing engine operators, particularly Chief Engineers and Second Engineers on the proper use and the benefits of the ME engine. It contains the same operational functionality as the actual ME engine which has improved operational efficiency.
The ME system is designed for easy operation by anyone familiar with the operation of one of MAN B&W Diesel standard engines. If necessary, the simulator can be retrofitted with numerous components from an ME control system such as remote control, FIVA valve, lubricators, hydraulic controls, etc.
Thirteen computers are contained within the console cabinet, including operating system following marine standards, MPCs and simulation computers.

The extended capabilities of the engine operator require education, not in the inherited intuitive and basic functionality of the engine, but in the proper usage of the ME interface which enable the engine operators to make sure they get the best out of the ME engines.

The first batch of training was conducted in ISNTC on February 20 to 24 this year, attended by ten management level engine officers from India, Turkey and the Philippines. Two instructors, namely Michael Johns and Claus Vogel from Rudolf Diesel-Academy of Copenhagen conducted the training.
