January 16

The 28th CIMAC World Congress is one of the most important international events in the field of Large Diesel and Gas Engines and will take place from 6 - 10 June 2016 in Helsinki, Finland.

For a grand week the engine industry will be in Helsinki to review and discuss technical, environmental and regulatory trends, developments, opportunities and challenges. More than 1,000 experts of the large engines industry including engineers, developers, professors and scientists, ship owners, power station and rail operators, oil companies and suppliers from all over the world will be present at the event.

A traditional value of the CIMAC Congress has always been the high technical level of the sessions and this year is no exception. The five-day Congress will offer state-of-the-art information on engine technology and engine applications by specialists working in relevant fields. The CIMAC Congress will also feature an exhibition floor where companies and institutes can present their latest technologies and products, along with social evenings and technical visits which will aim to bring together the fraternity a step closer than ever before.

High-Quality Technical Programme

The Congress will encompass all technological aspects of the large engines industry from across the globe and is a unique gathering of an assembly of key decision makers who only meet once every three years to spend a week of undivided attention on the latest and the greatest the industry has to offer.

The high-quality technical papers to be presented will be in resonance with CIMAC’s goal of addressing the newest technologies and the development trends focusing on all aspects of the energy conversion process as well as the user’s experience with engines and plants in operation. Some of the important areas to be addressed at the event include Product Development with Diesel, Gas and Dual Fuel Engines, Emissions Control and Exhaust Gas Aftertreatment, Turbochargers & Air/Exhaust Management, System Integration & Optimization as well as Users’ Aspects, Maintenance & Monitoring for various applications among others.

As the Congress aims to address the current inclinations of the industry, more new and broader challenges awaits us in the future. And to this regard one of the most interesting topics that will be discoursed during the event is the area of System Integration. The underlying fundamental question is how to increase the overall efficiency and performance of ships and other large engine applications through a holistic approach, which takes into account the entire powertrain and focuses on comprehensive system engineering solutions.

Building on the success from the previous Congress held in Shanghai in 2013, CIMAC hopes that this year at Helsinki will mark a turning point in the way the large engines industry is being viewed not just as a ‘Manufacturer- End User’ commercial function but also from the value they bring to the customer from a standpoint of environmentally and economically sustainable energy production.  

Come, join us at Helsinki!  


The International Council on Combustion Engines (CIMAC) is a non-profit association with more than 400 member companies in 28 countries worldwide. CIMAC aims to bring together and improve understanding between manufacturers of diesel engines and gas turbines, users such as ship owners, utilities and rail operators, suppliers, oil companies, classification societies and scientists. Its goal is also to promote the exchange of scientific and technical information through CIMAC events, to facilitate Working Group activities and publication, to support work in the area of standardization and to collaborate with other international associations.
