SEPTEMBER BRANCH MEETING - The 2011/2012 season for the Vancouver Island Branch of the Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering will commence with the first monthly meeting at 7PM Thursday September 15 in the Lower Lounge of the Naden Officers’ Wardroom in Esquimalt.
The speaker for the evening will be Holger Jacobsen who is a diesel engine emissions engineer with Wartsila. He has developed and used a protocol for evaluating engine performance through the “lens” of combustion technology and adjusting the technology and engine parameters to optimize exhaust emissions on marine diesels, based on some very sophisticated sampling equipment.
With Emission Control Areas (ECA’s) deadlines rapidly approaching, (voluntary this year, mandatory in 2012) his combination of engineering theory and practical knowledge should be extremely interesting to CIMarE members. Holger is a very articulate and pleasant speaker, so the discussion should be lively. This presentation deserves to have a good turn out so please plan to attend and bring a friend.
MARINE PHOTO CONTEST - The Marine Photo Contest is returning for 2011. Please send your digital entries of photos with a marine theme to firstname.lastname@example.org . A slide show of the winning entries will be shown at the Christmas Social.
