GTT Training, subsidiary of Gaztransport and Technigaz (GTT), 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 specifically of the new LNG vessels owned and operated by Chevron. The G-Sim software will also interface with the Engine Room simulation equipment being
provided to Chevron by L-3 DPA.
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 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.
In addition to the Chevron specific vessels, the instructors will also be able to select from 16 different configurations of LNG Carrier, with the selection being based on tank capacity, containment system and propulsion system, to cater for future requirements.
Developed internally by GTT Training using their extensive experience in the behaviour of LNG and providing training simulators to the maritime industry, G-Sim provides the most effective training platform for training operatives in the handling of LNG.
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.”
