Gas carrier sts simulators introduced

Mar 21 2014


Transas Marine has launched its new liquid cargo handling simulator - LCHS 5000 TechSim LNG.

This is claimed to be the first in the market to boast ship-to-ship transfer functionality. The new LCHS 5000 TechSim product line includes simulators for LNGCs, LNG terminals and LPG carriers.

Ship-to-ship transfer is a complex operation which requires adequate training to minimise the risks of damage to personnel, environment and assets. The LCHS 5000 allows for a  complete resource management training involving crews of both mother and daughter vessels, Transas said.

The new simulator will enable trainers to provide highly realistic, in-depth training. This includes vessel team management exercises, as well as interaction with terminal operations staff.

The LNG vessel and LNG terminal simulator models were developed in a close collaboration with the Sczecin Maritime Academy, Poland. Simulated models have been designed to reflect real installations, which are currently under construction at the Swinoujscie LNG terminal in Poland.

To further complement the liquid gas vessel model range, an LPG vessel model was developed by Transas and validated by LPG operators.
