Target group

This operation advanced training is aimed for marine engineers and technical staff who are involved directly or indirectly in operation and supervision of the above listed WinGD X-DF engine type(s). This is taking into consideration the common engine control system WiCE for the appropriate bore segment(s).


Applicants should demonstrate a good theoretical knowledge of two-stroke low-speed diesel engines and have certain operational experience on RT-series or similar conventional / common rail engines. It is expected that applicants have completed the basic gas operation (STCW V/1-2-1) or its equivalent.

Objective of the Training Course

Participants will learn WinGD’s electronically controlled engine features and deepen their knowledge on engine components and functionality of all engine systems.

Particular focus is put on the engine control system, WiCE, for the X-DF engines and the integration into the vital engine systems (i.e. fuel injection, liquid and gas fuel system, servo oil and cylinder lubrication, etc.)

Theoretical lectures are enriched with W-Xpert virtual engine room simulator sessions. This allowing the use of simulated WiCE operator’s interface Manual Control Panel (MCP) therefore optimising engine operation and dealing with various scenarios of engine failure.

Operation advanced training also contains operational experience and various service aspects.

Course Location

By default, training courses are offered at one of the WinGD Training Centres. Upon request, the course can also be delivered in alternative locations, these include WinGD training partners, ship owners and/or crewing agency premises or even on-board ship. In such cases hardware demonstration parts may be limited, however W-Xpert simulator-based sessions and the content of the course will not differ from courses offered at WinGD Training Centres.
