Transas Offers New LNG Tanker Simulator

Friday, February 15, 2002
Transas expanded its range of Liquid Cargo Handling simulators with the LNG tanker simulator. The LCHS/LNG system realistically imitates the fourth tanker type in the Transas simulator range, which also includes Chemical Tanker, Liquefied Petroleum Gas Carrier and Large Crude Oil Carrier models. Main components of the Transas PC-based LNG simulator include Ship's Hull, Ballast System, Cargo System, Terminal Operations, Machinery Room and Inert Gas Plant. All the processes in tanker systems are displayed on the simulator screen using 2D animation. The simulator also incorporates a comprehensive Load Calculator system for cargo calculations, such as draft, trim, heel, stability, shearing forces and bending moments. The new LNG simulator from Transas is provided with Unit Fault introduction capability. Using this facility, the Instructor can create and initiate faults during the exercise involving the operation of valves and pumps. The LCHS/LNG simulator uses the MS Windows 2000 Operational System platform. Up to 12 interactive LNG Trainee workstations can be connected for common exercises under the supervision of an Instructor. According to Dmitry Kazunin, Head of Transas Liquid Cargo Simulator Development department, Transas is confident about the benefits of using PC-based technology in Liquid Cargo simulators. Essential advantages of Transas simulator systems are that they demand less space than their full mission counterparts, are highly cost-effective and are used on conventional computers and with standard operating systems. This allows students to avoid spending their time familiarizing themselves with the interface of the simulator they are trained on. The external appearance of Transas Liquid Cargo Handling simulators and their functional capabilities realistically mirror actual onboard control panels and are open for future upgrades. This guarantees a much greater ratio of knowledge and skill transfer than was achievable with any hardware-based simulator.
