RS has carried out a new phase of surveyors training on classification services for LNG carriers.  

The first phase (2008-2010) was carried out by RS in cooperation with American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and included a theoretical course for surveyors according to joint program and a practical training on LNG carriers directed by qualified ABS mentors. This phase enabled to train 15 specialists. Currently, many of them are successfully performing classification and survey activities during the construction of LNG carriers at shipyards in South Korea.   

In 2012-2013, due to the predicted activity growth in design and construction of LNG carriers for procurement of large Russian projects on LNG production (Vladivostok LNG, Yamal LNG, etc.), another two training seminars on LNG transportation by sea were held for surveyors at the RS Training Center. RS said some competent highly skilled RS experts have been involved in these seminars. In total, 51 persons successfully finished this theoretical training.

Further on, during 2013-2014 the trained engineers proceeded to the yard STX Offshore and Shipbuilding in South Korea for on-site training on LNG tankers under construction. Currently, their training is successfully completed. Therefore, RS said it now has sufficient (over 60 persons) number of highly-skilled experts in classification services during construction or operation of state of the art LNG carriers all over the world.
