Improve and deepen your knowledge of marine propulsion systems


Maritieme toeleveranciers, Scheepsbouw

The training series: ‘Marine Propulsion’ is a unique technical and international oriented training series for those who wish to acquire in-depth knowledge of the design of different marine propulsion systems. Netherlands Maritime Technology (NMT) organises this training series once a year and will start again in September 2019 in Rotterdam. Improve and deepen your knowledge of marine propulsion systems and register now!

Module 1: Propulsion Plant Concepts and Basic Ship Hydrodynamics

Different power plant concepts and their main components, such as general design considerations and component interaction are discussed on the first day. Ship and propeller characteristics are the main topics on the second day. This module will take place on 16th and 17th September 2019.

Module 2: Marine Propulsors Characteristics

This module will provide the participants with a thorough understanding of the working principles of a wide variety of marine propulsors. This module will take place on 7th and 8thOctober 2019.

Module 3: Diesel and other Marine Internal Combustion Engines

Module three recently has been upgraded according to recent technological developments, such as gas engines. The working principles and characteristics of different types of internal combustion engines, like diesel, gas and dual-fuel reciprocating engines are discussed. This module will take place on 28th and 29th October 2019.

Module 4: Electrical Drive Characteristics

During the fourth module participants will learn about the fundamental working principles of electrical power generation and distribution systems. This module will take place on 18th and 19th of November 2019.

Module 5: Matching Propulsion Engine and Propulsor

The last module discusses the procedure of evaluating the operational situation of a propulsion system, in both design and off-design conditions. This module will take place on 9th and 10th December 2019.

Pamas certification

Three modules of the Marine Propulsion training series together have a Pamas certification: module 1, module 3 and module 5. Participants that are enrolled for all these three modules can apply for this special NMT Marine Propulsion Pamas certificate. The Pamas certification is the Dutch certification for technical, maritime post-academic trainings. Participants who have completed these three modules in previous years may also apply for a NMT Marine Propulsion Pamas certificate. For more information about the Pamas certification, please click here.
