A subsidiary of Gaztransport and Technigaz (GTT), GTT Training, has announced that it has received a contract to supply its G-Sim LNG simulator software to L-3 DPA Inc. and Chevron.
The contract involves the development of a new LNG carrier model based on the new LNG vessels owned and operated by Chevron. The G-Sim software will also interface with the engine room simulation equipment that L-3 DPA is providing to Chevron.
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. The instructors will be able to select from 16 different configurations of LNG carrier, based on tank capacity, containment system and propulsion system.
Ray Gillett, Director and General Manager of GTT Training, said: "We are very honoured 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 high skilled personnel will continue to be available to meet the industries requirements.”
