CCGC acquires Wärtsilä training engine

The Canadian Coast Guard College has announced that it has acquired a state-of-the-art Wärtsilä training engine. The engine is reportedly the first of its kind in Canada. College personnel and trainees will use the engine to learn about the operation, repair, and rebuilding of a Wärtsilä W8L26 diesel engine. The training engine includes a control room, equipment, and systems layout similar to that which students would find on a Canadian Coast Guard ship. “With this new system, our students and personnel will be provided with the theory and practical hands-on training that’s essential to the safe and effective operation of our fleet and the delivery of programs for all Canadians,” said CCGC Executive Director Dena Richardson.
