MEGI Engine – Familiarization, Operation Course

MEGI Engine – Familiarization, Operation Course (MEGI)

The course is conducted with state-of-the-art slide show presentations and videos of actual systems of the latest generation of the MAN B & W ME-GI Engine and cloud MOP simulation accessible to all participants.
Course | Updated

The MAN B & W ME-GI engines are the dual fuel engines using LNG as secondary fuel and are use since 2015 and looking at new requirements of MARPOL Annex VI it is going to be the future of marine propulsion engines.
Besides enabling understanding of the development of ME-GI engines from ME-C engine, the course also incorporates operation, safety and troubleshooting of ME-GI engine.
A proper understanding of the system and its functions is critical to safe and efficient Main Engine operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting.
The objective is to build the participant’s ability and confidence in being able to operate the system, fully understanding its capabilities and limitations and troubleshoot the system.
The philosophy followed with detailed explanations with one-on-one interaction between instructors and trainees ensures that the participants understand how to operate the system.
The comprehensive slide presentations would be used to explain in detail, construction of components like Gas Block, Window Valve, Gas Injectors, Purge Valve and various other gas components. Also, requirements and functioning of necessary Secondary Fuel supply system (FGSS), Gas Valve Train (GVT), Inert Gas System and other accessories explained.
Common troubles, and their solutions are discussed for building up confidence in tackling unwarranted situations.

Course Objective: Upon completion of this course the participants will feel comfortable with the

  • ME-GI engine by understanding the principles of the ME-GI systems.
  • In addition, they will also learn how to operate the ME-GI engine and associated system.
  • Furthermore, the participants will learn to do Gas system troubleshooting and procedure of leak detection.
