What is CIMAC? 

CIMAC is the leading global non-profit association promoting the development of ship propulsion, train drive and power generation. The association consists of National Member Associations and Corporate Members in America, Asia and Europe. CIMAC provides a forum for technical interchange with all parties interested in piston engines, gas turbine systems, non-shaftline propulsion systems, automation and controls, system integration and digitalization solutions.

CIMAC acts as a global platform for discussion through a range of events, namely the CIMAC Congress (once every three years), CIMAC Circles, CASCADES and web seminars. The content-related work evolves around CIMAC's Strategy and Workings Groups which produce publications on various topics.


Association Structure of CIMAC

CIMAC's organisational structure is based on the CIMAC Council, the CIMAC Board, and the CIMAC Strategy & Working Groups.

The CIMAC Council, which is the decision making body responsible for CIMAC's policies, consists of the National Member Associations from individual countries and Corporate Members (in countries where there are no National Members Associations). 

The CIMAC Board has clearly defined responsibilities and implements CIMAC's policies. Its members along with the CIMAC Central Secretariat are responsible for the day to day business of CIMAC. The CIMAC Board is elected by the CIMAC Council for a tenure of three years, for the period between one CIMAC Congress to another.
