First LNG Fuelgas-course accomplished

In week 8 we arranged our first LNG Fuelgas-course. The course was held for crew from NSK Shipping and was carried out at a approved safety centre in Bodø, Norway. The feedback from the participants concluded that this had been a success.

The first day of the course includes fire&gas theory with explosion limits, ignition temperature etc. The students were also practicing firefighting techniques

We have developed two courses for the fuelgas systems:

  1. LNG Fuelgas - Basic training for safety personnel - Category A
  2. LNG Fuelgas - Additional training for officers - Category B/C

The courses covers topics required by "Regulation for building and operating gas driven vessels" issued by IMO and the Norwegian Maritime Directorate, and includes basic understanding of gas behavior and handling, with explosion hazards, first aid etc. and also practical training on firefighting techniques.

Day two and three covers the fuelgas system with the different components, safety aspects, rules and regulations, operational modes and bunkering operations.

Our instructor and fuelgas expert on this course was Johnny Nylund.
