Ship's Simulator and Engine Room

Students practicing in the engine room

Engine Room

The college recently took a large scale delivery, when a 20-tonne ships engine arrived at the engineering workshops at the college’s Riverside Campus. 

The MAK designed and built engine is a vital component in creating the most modern working engine room in a college in the UK, if not Europe; underlining the world class facilities we offers marine engineering students.

Supplied, delivered and fitted by Imps UK Ltd of Lincoln, this engine can be used as the main engine for a coastal vessel, or as a diesel generator for a large marine vessel, but in this situation will be used to drive an alternator instead of a ship's propeller. 

This alternator can then be paralleled onto the main switchboard with the caterpillar generator (also being installed) which will then supply the power to run the plant.
