Marine Engine Room Training Simulator


Marine Engine Room Training Simulator

Essential Training for Marine Engineers

To ensure optimum safety and efficiency at sea, extensive training for marine engineers is essential. The L-3 DPA Engine Room Simulator is designed to provide the training your engineers need, from basic to advanced level, and with special reference to the requirements of the STCW code and IMO Model Course 2.07.

Training scenarios include propulsion, electrical and auxiliary systems for a range of modern vessels including multi-speed diesel engines.

Safety at Sea Begins with Comprehensive Training

Approximately 80% of maritime accidents are the result of human error. Simulation training, in a controlled environment, gives marine engineers the opportunity to learn, experiment and interact with a variety of realistic situations that would be dangerous or expensive to recreate in real life. Training with our Marine Engine Room Simulator offers potential benefits:

  • Increased Safety At Sea
  • Experience In Operating Typical Marine Propulsion Plants
  • Lower Running Costs
  • Reduced Insurance Premiums
  • Specialized Crew Training
  • STCW Certification for Crew and Engineering Officers
  • Assessment of Competance for Recruitment and Evaluation purposes

Easy to Maintain and Expand to Meet Changing Needs

The software is based on an architecture that allows the simulator to be easily maintained and expanded to keep pace with developments in marine technology and maritime legislation. It can be configured as a stand-alone system on a single PC, networked in a classroom or as a Full Mission Simulator complete with real instrumentation and controls. Key objectives of simulator training include:

  • Location and function of main and emergency propulsion controls and machinery
  • Preparation of machinery for operation after “cold ship” conditions
  • Operation of propulsion plant during maneuvering and “in harbor”
  • Operation of propulsion plant during “fall away” conditions
  • Troubleshooting and fault-finding
  • Safe operation during both routine and emergency conditions
  • Optimization of power plant for maximum safety and efficiency
  • Team-building and leadership

Designed to Recreate Real-World Conditions

  • Graphic displays are realistic, interactive and intuitive.
  • For training engineers with a wide range of abilities, from basic to advanced.
  • Scenario Editor’s simple, intuitive interface lets users create and control time-based events from any component in the system.
  • Over 200 simulated fault conditions testimonials
