Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) has launched a new liquid cargo training facility at its Maritime Training Centre in Cyprus to support its growing global LNG shipping operations.
The new liquid cargo simulator (LCS) has been developed by BSM’s in-house technical team and uses GTT Training software. It offers realistic training on a wide range of vessel types – LNG fuelled ships and LNG gas carriers with a combination of cargo containment systems and different propulsion systems with various options for LNG fuelled ship and LNG fuel supplier configurations.
“Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement has over 45 years of experience in the management of gas carriers, and currently manages more than 100 gas carriers, all staffed by our highly trained specialised gas fleet teams,” said general manager HR Marine, Andrew Hall.
”The new liquid cargo simulator will ensure that the technical and operational expertise, the understanding of key processes and knowledge of management best practice, of our seafarers working on board gas carriers and LNG fuelled ships is both industry leading and comprehensive.”
The LCS will be used to train seafarers to meet the requirements of the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers Code and Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators as well as offering a range of bespoke in-house courses. BSM will also offer liquefied cargo operation training, approved by DNV-GL.
