Paris – December 12nd 2019. GTT Training(1) was awarded the ‘LNG World Shipping Safety Award for 2019’. Each year, LNG World Shipping rewards one LNG player for its significant impact on promoting safety in the LNG industry. The awards ceremony took place in London, on November 28th 2019, during the LNG Ship/Shore Interface Conference.

GTT Training was mainly rewarded for taking into account the “human factor” in maintaining safety of the industry.

Neil Macnab, Training Manager, declared:  “We have been very busy over the last year providing many different LNG training courses for the industry, working with companies by training with the simulators, as well as working with new companies and those not familiar with the LNG industry or the IGF code(2) adopted by IMO’s Maritime Safety Committee (MSC).”

Ray Gillett, Director and General Manager of GTT Training said: “We are very proud to have received this award.  We are a young company and the fact that our contribution is recognised by the LNG industry so early confirms that we are moving in the right direction and achieving our aim of assisting the industry to keep the necessary skills and expertise that it needs to support its continuing growth.”
