AN LNG CARGO SYSTEM SIMULATOR FOR CREW TRAINING

Inevitably the number of ships entering service, the number and variety of ship-operating companies and the number of locations of storage terminals have created a need for professional training of LNG ship crews, and for retraining as ship designs evolve and operating practices change. Such training should combine actual equipment operation with classroom work. The purpose of the LNG Cargo System Simulator is to provide an economical opportunity for training on actual equipment without the limitations that would be encountered on an actual LNG carrier. On the Simulator the ship condition can be chosen at will (loading, voyage, cooldown, etc.) and a ship operation, or a part of an operation can be repeated as often as desired. Ultimately the students gain extensive experience with both normal and abnormal conditions and operations where the consequences of student action or inaction can be demonstrated safely.
