Marine Engine Room Simulator involves simulation with the
support of main engine and auxiliary systems in the engine room. The
machines and systems that have been simulated are main engine, diesel
generators, boiler, evaporators, heat exchangers, purifiers, steering gear,
pumps, compressors, valves and any other related parts.
The operating condition of machines and systems in the simulation is
exactly the same with the real ones. Therefore, with simulation method,
seafarer candidates get knowledge and skills at management level.
With in different failure scenarios that may be seen in practice in machine
and systems, main aims are to increase capabilities of the students through
operating and managing, and to raise qualified seafarers who have
teamwork skill and use technology.
The Engine Room Simulator is a full mission simulator designed to meet
the training requirements of marine engineers and plant operators from
basic to advanced level with special reference to the requirements of
Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW),
International Safety Management (ISM) Code and International Maritime
Organization (IMO) Model Course 2.07. (DNV, 2000)
In this study, importance of applied Engine Room Simulator education,
purpose and capabilities of Engine Room Simulator and knowledge and
skills of future seafarers who have teamwork skill and use technology are
