New approval for LNG training software

GTT Training has obtained two approvals for G-Sim training software from DNV GL in accordance with their standard for Maritime Simulator Systems.

It specifies the requirements of simulators that are to be used to deliver training to the shipping industry in line with the Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) requirements.

Ray Gillett, CEO of GTT Training, said: "The approvals issued by DNV GL confirm the reliability and quality of G-Sim software. They confirm the legitimacy of the simulator and strengthen its position in the maritime simulation systems market.”

“Moreover, G-Sim serves as an additional guarantee for gas operators wishing to deliver a high level of training to their crews," he added.

G-Sim software and LNG carrier models have received the highest level of compliance in the field of maritime simulation systems, Type A Full Mission Approval.

This means it can provide full environmental realism for simulating the complete liquid cargo handling and auxiliary systems for vessels.

The LNG Bunkering Simulator has also received Type S approval (Special Tasks), which is specifically related to the simulation of LNG Bunkering operations.

G-Sim software provides the operator with a total of 12 possible vessel configurations to meet different potential situations likely to be encountered by the crew.
