Diesel Simulation

The full-mission diesel simulator mimics a modern, slow-speed diesel propulsion plant and all typical auxiliaries found aboard actual vessels. Several rooms provide students with a variety of locations and state-of-the-art control consoles from which to operate all sub-systems of a 16,000 horsepower plant. Instructors may monitor student performance through a variety of recorders, cameras and computer systems, which are then used for briefing and debriefing of exercises. A computer lab adjacent to the full-mission simulator is included for class lectures and after-hours student practice.
