GTT Training receives an order for its G-Sim LNG Simulator from L-3 DPA and Chevron
10th February 2016. GTT Training, the specialist LNG training and simulation provider, announces the award of a contract to supply its G-Sim LNG simulator software to L-3 DPA and Chevron.
The contract involves the development of a new LNG Carrier model based specifically on one of the new LNG vessels owned and operated by Chevron. This will be installed on a system comprising one instructor and nine student stations at the Chevron training facility located in Glasgow. The G-Sim software will also interface with the Engine Room simulation equipment being provided to Chevron by L-3 DPA.
Used to provide hands-on, real-time training in the processes and procedures that must be followed to undertake and complete any type of LNG cargo-related operation, G-Sim provides full simulation of all the systems on a vessel that are involved in the management and handling of the LNG cargo and maintaining the vessel in a safe condition. In addition to the Chevron specific vessel, the instructors will also be able to select from 16 different configurations of LNG Carrier, with the selection being based on tank capacity, containment system and propulsion system, to cater for future requirements.
Developed internally by GTT Training using their extensive experience in the behaviour[RBG1] of LNG and providing training simulators to the maritime industry, G-Sim provides one of the most effective training platforms for training operatives in the handling of LNG.
Ray Gillett, Director and General Manager of GTT Training said, “We are very honoured[RBG2] to receive this contract from both, one of the leading simulation companies in the world, L-3 DPA, and leading LNG operators, Chevron. It is a reflection of our commitment to work directly with the industry to provide the training resources required to ensure sufficient skilled personnel will continue to be available to meet the industries requirements.”
