K-Sim® Engine MAK 8M453C Navy M11

The K-Sim Engine MaK 8M453C Navy M11 simulates a logistic support vessel witha single installation Krupp MaK M453C medium speed (four stroke) diesel engineconnected to CP propeller.

The main engine model respond dynamically to variations in operation and conditions of the ship model and the ship model have mutualresponses to the main engine model.


The electrical power plant includes two diesel generators, one shaft generator andone emergency generator. The steam plant includes oil fired boiler and auxiliaryboiler. Control room operator station and panels as well as bridge and steeringpanels are included.


Kongsberg Digital simulator models exceed requirements in the STCW convention, Regulation 1/12 and fulfill DNV GL’s standard DNVGL-ST-0033 for MaritimeSimulator Systems.


The K-Sim Engine MaK 8M453C Navy M11 model is designed to be a valuable tool inthe basic and advanced training of marine engineers. The training objectives are totrain 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.
