GasLog picks Kongsberg simulator for LNG crew training
Kongsberg Digital (KDI) and GasLog have signed a deal for the delivery of an LNG simulator package designed to enable new levels of safety and operational training for GasLog’s professional crews.
GasLog operates 27 LNG vessels through its subsidiary, GasLog LNG Services with seven ships currently on order.
The KDI contract represents a major commitment and investment on GasLog’s part to provide a flawlessly accurate training environment for their crews, solely focused on LNG operation.
The scope of supply is based on an integrated, turnkey training solution featuring a K-Sim Navigation DNV Class A ship’s bridge simulator and a K-Sim Engine Desktop simulator including the steam plant dual fuel LNG carrier and the diesel-electric duel fuel DE21 LNG models.
The engine room models will be interfaced to a corresponding K-Sim cargo LNG liquefied natural gas carrier-M cargo handling simulator.
The simulators will be installed in GasLog’s technical management HQ in Piraeus, Greece, with an entire floor specifically allocated for simulator training activities.
In addition to GasLog, KDI provides K-Sim training solutions for Minerva Marine, Maran Gas Maritime, TMS Cardiff Gas and Tsakos Energy Navigation, meaning that it services more than half of the nine companies which constitute the Greek LNG carrier fleet.
