In November, Raymond Weijenberg, Learning & Development Specialist at YANMAR Europe, went to the Aeres MBO vocational training college in Emmeloord, The Netherlands, to give a guest lesson about 'green technology' to twelve of their students. The teaching tool? One of YANMAR’s latest Stage V common rail engines, a 4TNV98CT.

A clean, sustainable future

The aim was to make the students aware of the choices we face in the search for new energy sources towards a clean, sustainable future. This led to lively discussions about diesel technology past and present, about fossil-free diesel and other types of renewable energy, such as fuel cells, electricity, hydrogen.

Diesel in practice

Then it was time for practice. Outside, the engine was connected to a diagnostic interface box and remotely controlled via a computer. What exactly happens? When you speed up or slow down the engine, when a cylinder fails, when you let the particulate filter regenerate at 700 degrees Celsius and hold a plastic cup over it? What do you see, hear, feel and smell?

New perspective

Raymond looks back on an interesting afternoon at school full of interaction, energy and practice. "I am convinced that from now on the students will have a different view on technology.”
