French maritime vocational school Lycée Maritime Jacques Cassard in Nantes will use Kongsberg Maritime's advanced engine room simulator to train its students on marine engine operations from 750kW to at least 3000kW engineer level.

Instructors have free reign to create engine failure scenarios based on real conditions to test students' reactions and their ability to track faults and restore the engine to normal operations, as if they were in a real engine room.

The K-Sim engine delivery will consist of an instructor station and eight student stations, with two engine models: MAN B&W 5L90MC L11 (Very Large Crude Carrier) and K-Sim Engine MaK 8M32C M11 (Trawler).
