CIMAC Congress – The Countdown Starts!



When we flashed the news about the upcoming CIMAC congress, many questioned or are not aware about CIMAC.  Here we write to you to clarify on the same.

CIMAC – is the International Council on Combustion Engines and it is a worldwide non-profit association consisting of National Member Associations, National Member Groups and Corporate Members in 26 countries in America, Asia and Europe.

In a nutshell – anything on internal combustion engines, then it is CIMAC and its associated working groups which will set the standards.

CIMAC covers diesel and gas engines and gas turbines which are used for power generation, marine propulsion and locomotives.  Worldwide members include engine manufacturers, engine users such as shipowners, component suppliers, fuel and lubricant companies, research organisations, classification societies, universities and other interested bodies.

Now coming to the CIMAC congress, this event is the 28th CIMAC World Congress scheduled to happen in Helsinki – June 6th to June 10th.  We can rather say that this is one of the biggest and a highly technical event where the brightest minds in the world meet.

Put simply, it is where the biggest companies and best minds in international marine large-scale engine development gather to discuss their achievements and ambitions in this field.

The Mission of CIMAC is to

  • promote exchange of scientific and technical information via its Congresses and CIMAC Circles,
  • improve understanding between engine manufacturers and users,
  • improve understanding between manufacturers and suppliers,
  • focus upon and promote the work and activities of National Member Associations,
  • promote exchange on technological developments in a pre-competition state, e.g. in its Working Group meetings,
  • contribute to internationally applied technological standards and publications and
  • collaborate with other International Associations.

The 2016 Congress is expected to focus on a range of key issues in engine development, including gas and dual-fuel engines, emissions control and exhaust gas after-treatment, turbochargers and air/exhaust management with many other interesting technologies.

We are sure that you would be excited and willing to attend this congress.  However, we understand that the work and business may not allow everyone to do so.

Don’t worry.

MFAME is committed to bring vital information and deliver it to you in the same window through which you read this message.
