Global LNG - LNG Competency

Client: Global LNG
Project title: "LNG Competency Training"
Date: January 2005

The Requirement: 

To create a multimedia training and competency assessment package that would measure the competency of officers being considered for service on an LNG Carrier and to assist the development of staff during intensive 28 day training voyages onboard ship. 

The Solution: 

The training material was prepared to cover LNG management staff and OOW. General LNG Safety information is provided for the crew.

A summary of the operation and technical requirements of the equipment commonly found onboard, such as: Compressors, nitrogen generators, relief valves, ESDS and the cargo vaporiser, was prepared in consultation with client.

3D and cross sectional diagrams of the four main LNG types, Kvaerner Moss Rosenberg, Gaz Transport, Technigaz and the Type 'B' Self Supporting Prismatic LNG Carriers, are included.

In addition to cargo information, ship specific functionality and assessments there are step-by-step sequences working through the various cargo phases from gassing up to gas freeing.


Client Comments:

"We endorse Witherby Seamanship and the competence they can bring. They are a wonderful organisation and their team are quite superb".
