GTT Training equips Teekay training centres with G-Sim LNG Simulator software


Paris - 16 June 2016. GTT Training, the specialist LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) training and simulation provider, has been recently awarded a contract by Teekay Shipping, a global marine energy leader, to supply the G-Sim LNG simulator software into their training centres in Glasgow, Manila and Bahrain.

The contract includes the development of a ME-GI propulsion configuration based on the Teekay LNG carriers that have recently entered into service. This new configuration will be in addition to the 16 LNG vessel configurations already available within the G-Sim simulator software.

“GTT is very pleased to support Teekay in the continuing optimization of their training tools, particularly by providing a simulator that includes the latest propulsion system characteristics to be introduced by the company”, said Ray Gillett, Director and General Manager of GTT Training.

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 systems onboard a vessel that are involved in the management and handling of the LNG cargo and maintaining the vessel in a safe condition.

Entirely designed by GTT Training, expert in the behavior of LNG and providing training simulators to the maritime industry, G-Sim is one of the most effective training platforms for training operatives in the handling of LNG.
